Tight race for business win

TV personality Paul Hancock will again MC the awards.

THERE are only a few weeks left until the winners of this year’s Cumberland Local Business Awards are announced at a gala presentation at Wenty Leagues.

“It is a tight race,” according to Precedent Productions managing director and Awards founder Steve Loe.
“Our judges are always impressed by the high standard of the Cumberland Local Business Awards finalists,” he said.
“This year is no exception and our judges have said it has been more difficult than ever to separate this year’s award contenders and determine winners in each category.”
Mr Loe said that the high quality of the finalists came as no surprise.
“After more than 30 years of running the Local Business Awards, I know that businesses in the Cumberland are adaptable and hard-working,” he said.
“They always put their best foot forward and ensure that their customers receive outstanding products and service.
“That is why it is also unsurprising that the Cumberland community throws its support behind those businesses both during the awards period and throughout the year.
“While there can only be one winner in each category, as far as I am concerned every finalist is a winner.”
Mr Loe called on the Cumberland community to recognise the generosity of the Awards’ platinum sponsor Cumberland Council and major sponsors NOVA Employment, Wenty Leagues Club, Stockland Merrylands and Primewest Auburn Megamall and supports sponsors Dooleys Lidcombe Catholic Club, Auburn Central and Merrylands Chamber of Commerce.
This year’s category winners will be announced at Cumberland Local Business Awards presentation evening on Tuesday, June 4, at Wenty Leagues.
“The presentation features wonderful entertainment, with local dignitaries in attendance, but the real stars of the show are the finalists and winners,” Mr Loe said.
