Get in quick for the Singleton Hall of Fame

Nominations are closing soon for the 5th Peabody Wambo Coal Singleton Hall of Fame Awards 2013.

The Hall of Fame recognises individuals, families or local organisations that have a strong association with Singleton and have obtained significant prominence in their field of endeavour at a state, national or international level.

Nominations for the seven categories of awards close on 30 August with inductees to be recognised at a presentation in October.

Wambo General Manager Peter Baker said Peabody was proud to support the awards which honour the contributions of members of the Singleton community.

“People and organisations inducted into the Wambo Coal Singleton Hall of Fame are recognised and celebrated for their outstanding achievements,” Peter said.

“Peabody has been a long-time supporter of the Hall of Fame and we’ve seen some amazing inductees in that time.”

“I’d encourage anyone who knows a local who has made a significant contribution to our community to nominate them for the awards.”

Peabody Energy, owns and operates the Wambo open cut and underground mines in Warkworth, and has been the naming rights sponsor since the event’s inception.

For the first time the Business category has been extended to include mining and a Wine and Tourism category has also been included.

The 2013 categories are:

  • Arts, Science and Education, including culture and entertainment
  • Business, including agriculture and mining
  • Public Service, including politics, unionism, religion, education, welfare, defence, bravery and gallantry
  • Wine and Tourism
