Due to record rainfall, we're behind in our mowing schedule. We're unable to use our mowers while the ground is saturated and the long grass takes longer to mow. Our crews are working hard to catch up. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Nominate amazing people in Knox

Help us honour everyday people who make a positive difference in our community. Nominations for the Knox Australia Day Awards close 2 December 2022.

Our Awards recognise those who reach out to help others, volunteer in the community, or work to preserve the environment.

Sophie Ashdowne, our 2022 Young Citizen of the Year recipient, was honoured for her volunteer work at Pinchapoo, a not-for-profit that redistributes hygiene products to people in need.

Her volunteer work ranges from packing essential hygiene items in boxes and bags, to teaching new volunteers that joined Pinchapoo.

During COVID, Sophie started a mini Pinchapoo warehouse from her home with her mum to keep the organisation’s production work alive.

“I love volunteering with Pinchapoo because I know that my work helps lots of people.” said Sophie.

If you know someone that deserves to be recognised, nominate them for this special honour.

Nominations are open for 6 Award categories:

  • Citizen of the Year
  • Senior Citizen of the Year
  • Young Citizen of the Year
  • Local Hero
  • Sustainability Leadership
  • Volunteer of the Year

Nominations can be made by completing the online form by 2 December 2022.

Further information about the Awards, including eligibility and past recipients, is available on our Australia Day Awards webpage.
