Sindy writes: I would like to nomi- nate Peter Awhitu for the Good Bloke award as he and his wife have helped so many people throughout their lives. They have been hap- pily married for 42 years, have three beau- tiful daughters and one grandchild. Peter has worked very hard at Watercare for the past 30-odd years and has always done a good job at home and at work. He is always willing to give help to the next individual. He and his wife are a huge inspi- ration in my life and I am pretty sure they are an inspiration to a lot of people who've come in contact with them. They have always been there for me and quite a lot of other people. I was previously out of work and they tried to help in whichever way possible to help with getting me into work.'' The Good Bloke Award recognises the men in our community who go the extra mile to help others.
