Upper Hutt Leader - - FRONT PAGE -

Up­per Hutt busi­nesses are in the news this week.

For a sec­ond year the Welling­ton Re­gion Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Awards were held here, and fit­tingly so at the Ex­pres­sions Arts and En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre— which con­tin­ues to be a stand­out suc­cess story for our city and an un­beat­able busi­ness in its own right.

The more than 400 peo­ple at­tend­ing the black tie af­fair were treated to a qual­ity night of cel­e­bra­tion where the venue’s ad­ven­tur­ous and art­ful use of LED light­ing was but one of many points of ex­cel­lence.

Up­per Hutt busi­nesses did well, too, with Strictly Savvy , the RDL Group and The Cos­mopoli­tan Club all cat­e­gory win­ners. RDL also fea­ture on the front page to­day with the Tren­tham com­pany work­ing along­side the MakeA-Wish Foun­da­tion to de­liver a spe­cial day for Hun­tar Sam­mons, a brave and bat­tling Tren­tham 11-year-old. We are sure our com­mu­nity will be touched by Hun­tar’s story and wish the young man and his fam­ily the very best.

Lastly, Up­per Hutt is say­ing good­bye to Gethings Mo­tors, a Main St busi­ness with a proud record stretch­ing 85 years and, with Colin the last at the helm, three gen­er­a­tions long.
