Speech: Eurobodalla Business Awards


Thank you Mr Deputy Speaker. On 3 August I had the pleasure of attending
the Eurobodalla Business Awards at the Tomakin Sports & Social Club. The event recognised the great success of
the amazing local businesses across the Eurobodalla region. Local businesses were celebrated for their
entrepreneurship as well as their contribution to the local community, and I had the pleasure
of presenting the Excellence in Sustainability award to Southlands Fruit & Vegetables in
Moruya. The team won for their many strategies to
improve sustainability in their work. Southlands Fruit & Vegetables stock local,
farm-direct and organic fruit and vegetables, and they have worked hard to reduce their
packaging, introduce solar power and minimise food waste. I would like to make a special mention of
Yumaro, a local NDIS and disability employment provider in Moruya that’s doing great work
and making a real difference in people’s lives. Yumaro took out the ‘business of the year’
award. I congratulate them and all of the businesses
who were nominated and won awards on the night. Eurobodalla businesses provide a vital contribution
to the local community, and I was proud to show my appreciation for their work. Thank you to Eurobodalla Shire Council for
inviting me to enjoy the evening, and thank you to all the local business chambers for
your continued support of our local businesses.
