Clean­ing fairies bag tidy haul at awards

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

STAFF at Dalby’s own Town and Coun­try Clean­ing were awarded across three cat­e­gories in the 2018 Build­ing Ser­vice Con­trac­tors As­so­ci­a­tion of Aus­tralia Ex­cel­lence Awards.

The awards were just re­ward for what owner Scott MacDougall said was hard work and ded­i­ca­tion.

Chris­tine Phillips made a splash in the Queens­land­wide divi­sion, named run­ner-up for Long Ser­vice, a cat­e­gory open to those who have been in the in­dus­try for more than 10 years.

Tina Draney took first place in the Front­line Em­ployee cat­e­gory in the re­gional Queens­land divi­sion, which recog­nises an in­di­vid­ual’s out­stand­ing pro­fes­sional suc­cess.

Catherine DeVries, Bebe An­toza and San­dra Radke were de­clared win­ners in the Most Valu­able Team cat­e­gory in the re­gional Queens­land divi­sion.

“Most of their work is out of hours,” Mr MacDougall said.

“So no­body re­ally knows. Peo­ple just come to work and think the fairies have been be­cause the place is clean. They get very lit­tle recognition.”

Ms Draney said win­ning the awards was a shock.

“We didn’t know any­thing about it,” she said.

“It’s nice to be recog­nised.”
