Bathurst Business Awards
Martin & Judy are very excited and proud to have won the Best New Business Award at the Crowe Horwarth Carillon Business Awards 2013 and congratulations to all the other winners. It was a fantastic night for Bathurst and for Bathurst businesses.
Thank you: Crowe Horwarth, Rotary Club of Bathurst Daybreak, The Western Advocate, Radio 2BS, RCG Locksmiths all the other sponsors. Most especially thank you to our family and friends without whom we would not have been able to set up this business.
This win is a fantastic surprise and is testament to Martin’s passion for and knowledge of the antiques trade.
It hasn’t been easy setting up this business, with an international relocation and moving into a new home ( a new old home, of course)...... but sharing in these Awards helps make it all worthwhile.
As well as being able to offer the Bathurst community antiques at the right price, we certainly intend to continue contributing to the community through various sponsorships, fundraising activities and encouraging tourism to the Bathurst region.
