Glyn Shevels has received an 'Outstanding Volunteer Service Award',  the brief citation for which reads as follows. 

'Glynn Shevels arrived in Tasmania in 2010 and immediately become involved in the Living Boat Trust at Franklin, volunteering in their workshops repairing and maintaining boats in their fleet as well as running the Safety on the Water program for school students. 

This role expanded his networks to include working with Marine and Safety Tasmania (MAST) and Volunteer Marine Rescue to deliver and promote Safety on the Water education in the community and at the Huon Valley Trade Training Centre where he volunteers as the Coxswain Course Teacher.' 

Glyn took on a leadership role and was responsible for numerous initiatives at the LBT.  We missed him when he moved on to Marine Rescue, and it is great to see him and his students on their occasional visits to us.  This award is well merited.
