Congratulations to Eastside Business Awards winners


Eleven local businesses were recognised for excellence in 12 different categories at the Eastside Business Awards announced at St Peters Town Hall on Tuesday 9 April 2019. 

Over 170 businesses across the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters were nominated for an award, well exceeding last year’s total number of nominations. A public vote whittled down the nominated businesses to 50 finalists. The winners were then decided by a panel of judges.

Mayor Robert Bria, said: “The Council congratulates all of the businesses who received an award this year, as well as the many other businesses that were nominated.

“The awards are an excellent way to celebrate the many local businesses we have in our City, as well as strengthen the partnership between the Council and the local business community.

“I know that many of last year’s award winners have enjoyed an increase in their profile and exposure as a result of these awards,” said Mayor Bria.
