Ms JODIE HARRISON (Charlestown) — I would like to congratulate two extraordinary women in sport from the Charlestown Electorate - Mavis Randle and Dianne Pascoe - who were recognised in the 2021 Queen's Birthday Honours. Mavis Randle AM was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia for her significant service to hockey, and to the community. Mavis first got involved with hockey when she was twelve, and it has been a major part of her life ever since. She has helped build the sport as a local hockey umpire for 52 years, mentoring many people who have gone on to umpire at State and International level. Dianne Pascoe OAM received her Order of Australia Medal for her service to netball. I've known Dianne for years and am overjoyed her hours, months and years dedicated to the service of sport has been recognised. Congratulations to these women on their well‑deserved recognition.
