In a resounding victory at Keep Australia Beautiful’s Tidy Towns Sustainable Communities Awards, Pingelly emerged triumphant as the overall State Title holder, solidifying its commitment to sustainability and community. The awards ceremony, held at Kings Park on Friday, saw over 30 communities in attendance.

Pingelly showcased its excellence as a finalist in four categories: Heritage & Culture, Young Legends, Community Wellbeing, and the coveted State Title. The town's exceptional efforts were duly recognised, with Pingelly securing the Heritage & Culture State Title for the outstanding redevelopment and revitalization of the Town Hall and Court House . Additionally, Pingelly impressed the judges with the inclusion of the heritage festival, revitalisation of the museum and the creation of a heritage trail around town.

Dylan Cheney, a shining example of youth leadership, was honoured with the State Title for Young Legends. His initiative in assisting senior residents within the community by ensuring they have cut firewood and well-manicured gardens played a significant role in Pingelly's success.

Pingelly Somerset Alliance, a finalist in the Community Wellbeing category, received due recognition for their unwavering dedication and improvements aimed at enhancing the lives of senior residents in Pingelly and surrounding communities.

The highlight of the afternoon came as Pingelly was announced as the overall winner of the Tidy Towns Competition, securing the State Winners title for Western Australia.
