Mr HOGAN (Page) (13:47): I had the pleasure on Saturday night to attend the Clarence Valley Business Excellence Awards. There were well over 200 people in attendance. It was a great night and a great celebration of small businesses in our community. It was held at the golf club. I want to pay special tribute to Adam Gordon and his team and make a special mention of Erica Fletcher, who did an amazing job in organising the logistics of the evening; it was very well run. I also want to mention the major sponsor, the Daily Examiner—obviously these events cannot exist without sponsors.

I just want to run through very quickly some of the winners: Meredith and Scott at Kitchen to Table and Jeff and Robyn at I Scream won the two retail awards; Lisa and her team at Summerland Credit Union and Sam and his team at Mareeba Aged Care won the professional services awards; Janelle at Northland Coach and Travel won the tourism award; Ross and Gio at Harwood Marine won the trade and industry award and also the business of the year award; Anthony and David at Irons and Craig won the new business award; Vanessa and Scott at Willy Wagtails Kindergarten won the new business up to two years; CHESS Employment won the community and not-for-profit award; Sean Waite won apprentice of the year; Amy at Waves Fitness won the health award;and Fresh Dental Carewon the workplace award.
