Annette Lamb named Campbelltown woman of the year

Annette Lamb says being named 2022 Campbelltown Local Woman of the Year is an honour.

And as a woman who identifies as an Indigenous person, the long time Bradbury resident says it is extra special to be the first Aboriginal woman to win this award.

“We are proudly a multicultural mix in Campbelltown,’’ she says.

“Our Aboriginal community is one of the largest nationally and come from many lands, whilst our international community brings a special mix and exciting flavour.

“I love my home and the people of Campbelltown,” Ms Lamb said.

Campbelltown MP Greg Warren has congratulated Ms Lamb for winning the award and her contribution to the local community.

Mr Warren said Ms Lamb’s contribution to the Campbelltown community – particularly the local Aboriginal community – had made an enormous difference to many people over the years.

“Annette isn’t driven by awards or accolades, her reward is knowing she made a positive difference to the lives of others,” said Mr Warren, pictured with the woman of the year above.

“Annette has dedicated countless hours to helping others through her various positions on the Local Government advisory committee and Local Aboriginal Land Council.

“Annette was also the Aboriginal representative on the 2020 Campbelltown Bicentennial committee.

“Hundreds of local people have also found employment thanks to Annette – something the individuals and their families are extremely grateful for,’’ Mr Warren said.

The annual accolade is an opportunity to recognise the selflessness and incredible contributions of women in Campbelltown.

Previous winners include WILMA women’s health centre manager Michelle Mays, Campbelltown Thunder Netball Club founder Monique Keogh and local identity Margaret Shafer.

Ms Lamb, along with other local women of the year winners throughout the state, have been invited to a ceremony in Sydney on March 9.
