Greymouth man Allan Wilson was in Wellington last week to receive his 20-year and 30-year long service awards for his work in civil defence. Mr Wilson left his post at the Grey District Council before Christmas and is now semi-retired, with a small consultancy business. He was presented with the awards by Civil Defence Minister Nathan Guy at the national conference dinner and combined awards ceremony. West Coast Regional Council chief executive Mike Meehan said it was an achievement that showed “huge dedication to the community dating back to before the 1988 Greymouth floods”.
