Mr HOGAN (Page) (13:55): I stand to congratulate Nadia Eliot-Burgess, who hosted the Ballina Chamber of Commerce 2014 Ballina Coast & Hinterland Business Awards on Saturday night. Well over 200 people were in attendance. It was a great night celebrating small business in the Ballina community. I would like to congratulate Troy Daley from Daley’s Gourmet Meat, which won business of the year. They are in the Wigmore Arcade, and Troy does a great job there.
Some of the other winners were Sasha’s Fine Foods, with the Customer Service Award; Sublime Clothing, with the Retail Outlet Award; Summerland House Farm, with the Tourism & Visitor Experience Award; Tonic Hair Body & Beauty, with the Hair, Beauty & Fitness Services Award; Collins Hume, with the Professional Services Award; Crowley Care Services, with the Health & Aged Care Award; McGeary Bros Engineering, with the Trade, Construction & Manufacturing Award; David Mackay Harrison Gallery, with the Home Based or Online Business Award; All Pest Solutions, with the Workplace Safety Award; Coaster Kings, with the Sustainable Business of the Year award; and the Ballina Shire Meals on Wheels, with the Don King Community & Social Services Award. Evolution Cafe won the People’s Choice Award.
We cannot have these without sponsors, so I also acknowledge Northern Star.
