2021 Hobsons Bay Business Excellence Awards

The 2021 Hobsons Bay Business Excellence Awards served as an opportunity to come together, virtually and in spirit, and celebrate the achievements of our business community, which have taken place in spite of the tumultuous challenges that the last year and a half has presented. 

This year more than ever the awards celebrated the efforts of our local businesses, both large and small, and recognised their achievements and contributions to the community and economy in Hobsons Bay.  

The awards took place at 7pm on Thursday 11 November and may be viewed below.
