The Awards, sponsored by the Commonwealth Bank and Prime 7, applaud and encourage those working in rural and regional areas helping to support and enhance social, economic, commercial or environmental prosperity of their region.
As the organisers say, “Awards such as these create an opportunity to say thank you to businesses, community groups and individuals who work tirelessly in developing their chosen fields of endeavour.” The Awards night is in Dubbo in mid-November, with a prize of $2,500.
Once again this year the Market is participating in the SMH Good Food Month by holding a special market on Sunday 11 October. Like last year’s market, it is an opportunity to showcase the produce of the South Coast to the Sydney market (as well as giving locals who can’t make Wednesdays a chance to attend). 10-2pm, Black Beach.
