Recognition for Heritage Volunteers


Volunteers, museums, history

Volunteers from around South Australia have been recognised for their efforts in preserving the state’s heritage at a ceremony on 24 May.

This year there were about two dozen nominations across individual and group categories for the annual Heritage Heroes awards. The awards were established by the South Australian Heritage Council to recognise the efforts of groups and individuals who have made a significant contribution to recognising, celebrating and conserving heritage.

There was strong recognition for museums and history in this year’s awards, with half of all recipients of a Minister’s commendation being individuals or groups working within small museums, historical societies and local history groups.

Friends of Loxton Historical Village took the top honour in the group award in recognition of their work on maintaining the extensive village site. Marcia Lorenz, Chair of Beachport Old Wool and Grain Store Museum, was a finalist in the individual category. Loxton Village and Beachport Museum are both registered museums in History SA’s Community Museums Program and it is fantastic to see both Loxton Village volunteers and Marcia recognised for their work.

Dr Susan Marsden received the Minister’s award for an individual, recognising her long-term work in heritage, history and as a volunteer.

Minister commendations were also awarded to a number of groups and individuals including Clayton Farm Heritage Museum volunteers and Rob Swarbrick from the Barossa Goldfields Historical Society.
