Nationals congratulate Latrobe City People's Choice award winners

Nationals Member for Eastern Victoria Region Melina Bath has congratulated all businesses who were winners, finalists and nominees in this year’s

Latrobe City Business Tourism Association People’s Choice Awards.

“It was an honour to attend the annual awards presentation on Tuesday night where our local businesses were recognised for their achievements and success,” Ms Bath said.

“From cafes, to hotels, to hairdressers, the quality and diversity of the businesses operating in Latrobe City is what makes for a strong local economy.

“I always encourage people to shop locally and when our businesses provide quality product and customer service residents have no need to take their business outside of the local community.” 

Member for Morwell Russell North said shopping locally helped contribute to the growth of the local business sector.
