MP Adam Marshall honours Inverell dad Peter Oliver

IT takes a lot of dedication, love and caffeine to have sporting kids. Countless early starts, long drives and late training sessions can be a marathon in itself – but Inverell’s Peter Oliver has gone above and beyond for youngsters across the district.

Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall presented the dedicated dad and coach with a NSW Government Volunteer Sporting Spirit award for his regular volunteering with Inverell’s Little Athletics Association.

“Peter is a great contributor to the club, and is helping ensure Inverell continues to grow as a centre for sport and athletics in the Northern Tablelands,” Marshall said.

“He donates hours each week – spending whole days supporting the Little Athletics Association whenever a carnival or zone final comes along.

While it’s fun, it’s a long day’s work, particularly when a final means travelling to Gunnedah or Lismore.” 

Oliver started helping with the club when his daughter Matilda signed up a few years ago.
