Three residents from the Peninsula area were awarded Australia Day Community Awards at a ceremony at Laycock St Theatre on Sunday, January 22.
In all, 52 citizens were nominated for a Community Award across the nine categories on offer.
Katie Dixon of Ocean Beach was awarded the award in the business category while Jocelyn Maughan received the arts, culture and entertainment award and Ros Greener received the senior award.
The ceremony included entertainment from Youth in Performing Art students and Gosford town crier Stephen Clarke as master of ceremonies.
Australia Day Committee chairman Cr Jim Macfadyen said that all of this year's nominees had made a significant contribution to Gosford City.
"The residents recognised at today's ceremony should be proud of the work they do within our community, their enthusiasm and dedication to helping others is what makes our community great.
"I would like to congratulate all of our nominees and this year's category winners for their outstanding efforts, these accolades are truly well deserved," said Cr Macfadyen.
