mediareleaseMED201723 LloydLawrence

Each year Council recognises the voluntary service of individuals and their significant contribution to the Central Hawke’s Bay District through the Civic Awards.

 This year’s worthy recipient is Lloyd Lawrence and was awarded the Civic Award by Mayor Alex Walker at a special ceremony held in the Council Chambers on 10 August 2017 acknowledging his many years of dedicated voluntary community service to our district.

 After moving to Central Hawke’s Bay from Wellington in 1958 Lloyd took an interest in many sporting and community organisations in Central Hawke’s Bay. After retiring from his sporting commitments he has taken a more active role in many community organisations.     

 Lloyd spent 20 years involved with the Hawke’s Bay and New Zealand Cricket Umpires Associations.  In the early 1980’s Lloyd swapped cricket for billiards and snooker, becoming a Referee, Examiner, Tutor, President and patron of the New Zealand and Hawke’s Bay Billiards and Snooker Associations and heavily involved with the local billiards and snooker scene.  In 2010 Lloyd received the Central Hawke’s Bay Sportsperson of the Year Award for service to billiards and snooker and in 2013 was inducted into the Central Hawke’s Bay Sport Hall of Fame for 23 years of service to billiards and snooker.

Lloyd has dedicated many years to community organisations, his many services and achievements include; past President and Life Member of CHB Probus, committee member and past President of the Waipukurau Club, Executive member and past President of the Waipukurau RSA Club, founding member and Treasurer of the CHB Community Patrol, Community Patrol Delegate to Eastern Districts, volunteer driver for the Waipukurau Red Cross, member of CHB Safer Communities, Judge for the CHB Sports Awards, volunteer for Electra Gallery, and member of Stroke CHB.

Lloyd’s most recent achievement is the founding of the CHB Community Security Trust, in conjunction with the Police, for the purpose of establishing a network of CCTV cameras in the townships of Waipukurau and Waipawa. He single-handedly approached businesses to raise $53,000 towards the project. This achievement has made Central Hawke’s Bay a safer place for everyone.
