Terrigal's own Beris Meldrum is a hidden treasure

TERRIGAL’S own Beris Meldrum has been volunteering at the local surf club for more than 30 summers now.
She is one of those key workers that the community relies on to be at the helm of life saving year in and year out. 
Now, people like Beris are highly valued and respected for their contribution by their own organisation but often don’t get the recognition they deserve from the wider society.
However, all that changed recently when Beris was one of 69 new names added to the NSW Hidden Treasures Roll which pays public tribute to the girls and women across regional, rural and remote areas who have given their time and energy to helping others in their community.
Coordinated by the NSW Rural Women’s Network, the 2021-22 Hidden Treasures Honor Roll recognises vital volunteering contributions made in those years.
Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch announced her inclusion in the Hidden Treasures Honor Roll.
“Beris joins more than 1000 women from across rural and regional NSW that have been added to the honor roll since 2010, each of them nominated by a member of their local community,” Mr Crouch said. 
“Women like Beris play an important role in community development and making rural NSW a great place to live. It is so important we honor their contributions to ensure that voluntary work is valued and respected.
“Beris is a well-known community member in Terrigal. She has been a member and volunteer at Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club for around 30 years.
“Day after day, week after week and year after year, Beris is down at the Surf Club volunteering her time as a trainer, official, first aider and almost every other role you can think of along the way. 
“Beris truly embodies a local hidden treasure.”
