Jan Sillato from MacMasters Beach has today been recognised for the significant support she has provided the Terrigal community as the 2023 TERRIGAL WOMEN OF THE YEAR ANNOUNCED.
Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch MP congratulated Jan on being awarded the 2023 Terrigal Women of the Year Award.
“Jan has provided over 30 years of community service to our region,” Mr Crouch said.
“Starting at MacMasters Beach Bush Brigade in 1994, Jan has also been a volunteer with Kincumber P&C and as the Student Admin Officer at Kincumber High School.
“Just recently Jan was awarded life membership at MacMasters Beach Surf Club for her amazing contribution over the past 20 plus years.
“Jan leads by example and provides inspirational encouragement and support for students, Nippers and seniors during training and competitions through the Surf Club.
“After receiving three separate nominations for this award, it was evident that Jan was our 2023 Terrigal Woman of the Year.”
The Local Woman of the Year Awards is an annual program which recognises and celebrates the support women give to their local communities throughout NSW.

“These women are the backbone of their communities, volunteering their time and energy to make a positive difference,” Mrs Taylor said.
“I would like to acknowledge their significant efforts to support their local communities and thank them for all the work they do.”
