Wairaurahiri Jets, Joyce Kolk has won the best prize at the recent Southland Environment awards. The coucillors Choice award. This award is a real honour to be choosen by the ES councillors as their choice out of all the nominees for this years environment awards.

The beach clean up group, has completed Beach Clean ups along the Fiordland coast line and the western side of Stewart Island over the past few years. I feel the award is not only for me but the rest of the group and its volunteers also are most deserving.
