Bruce Argyle received the Certificate of Recognition for many years of community service on Australia Day.
Mr Argyle is exceptionally well-known in the Healesville community, and for good reason.
He has an extensive history of volunteering with local groups, the Community Bank, the local radio station and many others.
Before and during the pandemic, Mr Argyle’s priority was building community capacity and reducing isolation and disadvantage and many local groups have benefitted from Mr Argyle’s thoughts, time, work or support.
A powerful public speaker, Mr Argyle is an instrumental part of the Healesville Toastmasters, where others gain the skills and confidence to take a podium or build up their capacity for speaking in front of crowds.
In recent years, Mr Argyle worked with the Lions Club of Healesville to relocate and fit out the new Community Radio Station on Lilydale Road.
He has worked with Healesville Interchurch Community Care Inc (HICCI) to facilitate strategic planning days and bring about their 2028 Strategic Plan and is currently working with the Badger Creek Hall Committee and the wider community to develop a plan for the hall ahead of its Centenary in 2025.
Always delivering expert advice with a smile on his face and time on his calendar, Mr Argyle is an asset to his town and a friend to countless others.
