2019 Brightest & Best Local Business Awards

The Waverley Brightest & Best Local Business Awards are back for another year, looking to find the local businesses that make our community an unbeatable place to live, work and shop.

All Waverley businesses both small and large, retail and non-retail, are eligible for nomination and entry. The Awards provide the opportunity for residents to give back and say thank you to the businesses that go above and beyond to provide outstanding service to us.

Nominations for the 2019 Waverley Brightest & Best Local Business Awards opened on Saturday August 26 and closed at midnight on Tuesday September 24.

This is the community’s chance to show that the incredible work done by our local businesses does not go unnoticed or unappreciated. Thank you to all those who nominated for their favourite business this year.
