No, this is not some call to arms or a complaint about trader neglect but it certainly involves a high level of recognition. It is time for traders to apply for recognition in the Lord Mayor’s Commendations Awards for 2016.
The Lord Mayor’s Commendations are a great way for traders to establish their contribution to our great market, and a great city, in a more formal and lasting way.
It doesn’t require a lot of preparation or effort and the “feel good” benefits are well worth it. Recent QVM recipients include Wayne Chitty, Maggie Korda, John Rosenberg, John Pontelandolfo, Greg & Sue Smith, Kevin & Annette Stanisich, John Magno, Carl Greco, the Pham family, Bill Tzimas and Xenia Charalambous. It should be noted that business partners can receive recognition, as well as registered stall holders.
Applications can be made online here - http://www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/enterprisemelbourne/BusinessSupport/lmcommendations/Pages/Applications.aspx or contact Greg Smith on 0406 222 020. Applications close on Friday 22nd May.
