PLAYFORD residents who routinely give up their time for their local community have been celebrated, as the Playford Alive Community Reference Group (CRG) reached its 10-year anniversary last week.
CRG members, past and present, local dignitaries and community members gathered at the John McVeity Centre on Friday to reflect on, and celebrate, the role the group has played in the development of the Playford Alive region.
The Playford Alive CRG was formed in 2007, in partnership with Renewal SA and Playford Council, and has been involved in the planning and implementation of projects such as the Playford Alive Town Park and the upgrade of the John McVeity Centre.
Playford Mayor Glenn Docherty said the CRG has played a vital role in improving the Playford Alive area, and that members should be proud of their efforts.
“For the past 10 years, CRG members have been active advocates for their local community, but more than just advocating through a letter or text message, they actually roll up their sleeves and get out in the community,” he said.
“These community members have given up their time for no other obligation or compulsion, except that they love their community.”
