Shire awards presentation

By Southern Riverina News

Months of hard work and planning culminate tonight at the Berrigan Shire Business Awards presentation dinner being held at the Cobram Barooga Golf Club.

The new format for the Business Awards will see awards made in three categories — the People’s Choice award, What’s New in Berrigan Shire and Made in Berrigan Shire.

Mayor Cr Matt Hannan said there has been a great response from the businesses that have been involved in the process.

‘‘We are looking forward to seeing the eight promotional videos that have been produced for the finalists in the two themed categories,’’ he said.

‘‘The filming for the videos was a learning experience for all involved and results in a tangible benefit for all the finalists.

‘‘The People’s Choice Awards for excellence in customer service was very well supported by the community with over 1500 votes being cast. There will be four finalists in this category but they will not be named until tonight.

‘‘We wish all finalists the best of luck tonight and for anyone interested, the awards will be live streamed through Facebook from 7.30pm,’’ Cr Hannan said.
