The night was held at the Centennial Park Restaurant to celebrate the finalists and announce the winners in the Wentworth Courier’s annual competition to find the Eastern Suburb’s best businesses.
The competition was tough with record numbers of businesses entering, including another vet practice. So we submitted our application in hope rather than expectation that enough of our clients would vote for us to make it into the finals. We finished the night with a clutch of awards, including the overall award for the Local Business of The Year!
Doctor Sally Pegrum, the practice principal, was clearly thrilled with the achievement. Speaking at the event she said “I’m shocked, I really am, but I want to burst with pride at how good my team are and how much they deserve this for all the hard work they put in.”
The categories we won the awards in are as follows:
- Professional Services – Winner
- Employee Excellence – Winner
- Local Business of the Year 2010 –Winner
We’d also like to congratulate Sam Lintott who was narrowly pipped to the post in the apprentice of the year award. Well done Sam, we reckon you deserved it.
I don’t think we can all quite take it in just yet, but we’d all like to take the opportunity to thank all of you, the wonderful pet owners of Sydney’s eastern suburbs, for allowing us the privilege and honour of caring for your pets for the past thirty years.
We know lots of you well enough to be friends. Others we’re just getting to know with new puppies, kittens or rabbits. Whoever you are we offer a heartfelt thank you from Double Bay Vet Clinic and look forward to serving you for the next thirty years.
