Awards for service, certificates and medals were presented to members of Harvey St John Ambulance last Saturday at its sub-centre.

The annual honour and awards night saw Harvey resident John Harrison-Brown receive life membership.

Mr Harrison-Brown joined the Harvey centre as a registered nurse and was elected to the committee in May 1996.

Due to his background he was appointed to the position of infection control officer, a position he still holds 22 years later.

St John Ambulance Harvey member Paul Beech said Mr Harrison-Brown had a strong commitment to the organisation.

“John provides a wealth of knowledge to all members, has a sharing attitude and is a highly respected and caring officer,” Mr Beech said.

“He received the highest award the sub-centre can give for 22 years of dedicated and excellent service to the organisation and community of Harvey.

“These awards are put on every year to acknowledge milestone achievements by Harvey’s sub-centre volunteers just like John.

“It is important that we recognise the contribution made by not only the long-serving members but those members who have been with us for only a few years.”

New members Jansen David and Sam Elias received a two-year certificate, while Lynette McCavanagh and Kellie Craigie were presented with their three-year medals.
