2017 Margaret River Business Awards

Congratulations to the Margaret River Chamber of Commerce and Industry on their 2017 business awards. This acknowledges outstanding achievements by small business. Over 200 people attended the night; we had beautiful service from the Margaret River TAFE hospitality students.

The crowd was wowed by performances by Freespirit, Trapeze, Volare, Wildstar and the Margaret River high school jazz band. They do a great job.

Congratulations to the following winners: Big Valley Campsite had two wins; Nudge Psychological Assessment and Consulting; Ocean Grown Abalone; Margaret River Cracker Company; Chic Rustique; Arrows; Rustico at Hay Shed Hill; Margaret River Hemp Co.; The Beer Farm; Margaret River Surf School, which won the People’s Choice award; and Margaret River Cracker Company, which won the Rising Star award. There were three special awards to the Cape to Cape Explorer Tours, which also received the Business of the Year award. This involves some funding from the Shire of Margaret River in their award.

I commend all of the winners to the House but would particularly like to acknowledge the great work done by those Margaret River TAFE students. Their service is outstanding; they take it very, very seriously. Each year I go, I compliment them on what they do to make that evening such a success.
