Seven local businesses recognised valued employees at Narooma Rotary’s annual Pride of Workmanship Awards at a special dinner at Narooma Golf Club last Thursday.
“Narooma Rotarians are really proud of this program and the support it receives from local businesses,” said Awards MC Rotarian David McInnes.
“It’s a chance for employers to publicly recognise key staff members for their contribution and excellent work across all aspects of their job. A great strength of these awards is it’s not a competition; everyone nominated is a winner.
“What these awards also show is that these businesses care about their employees and our community is the better for that.”
Rotary President Elect Andrew Lawson presented awards to:
- Dee Cramb from Clearwater Real Estate
- Belinda Watson of Dalmeny Long Day Care
- Kim Aitchison of Maven Dental Narooma
- Raam Pemberton of Montague Cafe
- Olivia Ford of Narooma Charters
- Cody Bond of Narooma Meat Centre.
Kate Heffernan of Narooma Pre-School was unable to be there and will be presented with her award at a later date.
Awards organiser Laurelle Pacey made particular mention of two awardees.
“It says a lot for Cody Bond that this is his second Pride of Workmanship Award,” she said. “He received his first when nominated by Chris and Robyn Scroggy in 2014 for being head chef at Quarterdeck. This one recognises his contributions as a final year apprentice butcher at Narooma Meat Centre.”
She said Belinda Watson has been a great supporter of these Awards over many years as Director of Dalmeny Long Day Care.
“Our Club is really delighted to share with Centre owner Kerrie Mault and her team in recognising your Pride of Workmanship in this way,” Ms Pacey said.
