Out­stand­ing New Busi­ness:

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - 2018 DENILIQUIN BUSINESS EXCELLENCE AWARDS -

The judges couldn’t split Evolve Fit­ness and Well­be­ing and River and Grain in the Out­stand­ing New Busi­ness cat­e­gory.

There were 15 busi­nesses nom­i­nated for the award.

This busi­ness was started two years ago and has al­ready grown by 150 per cent in that time.

In the nom­i­na­tion form it said Evolve is com­mit­ted to giv­ing back to the De­niliquin com­mu­nity by sup­port­ing com­mu­nity ini­tia­tives and its growth is due to the com­mit­ment and pro­fes­sion­al­ism of the staff.

‘‘Evolve have at­tracted, trained and nur­tured staff that in­clude lo­cal Cer­tifi­cate III & IV fit­ness train­ers, ex­er­cise phys­i­ol­o­gist and school based trainees,’’ the nom­i­na­tion read.

‘‘The team con­tin­u­ally par­tic­i­pate in pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment, which re­sults in con­tin­ual im­prove­ment and the abil­ity to of­fer clients an ever-ex­pand­ing range of pro­grams and prod­ucts. Evolve cur­rently has 10 team mem­bers who are com­mit­ted to fit­ness and well­be­ing.’’

River and Grain is op­er­ated by Leith Tweed, who only moved to De­niliquin two years ago.

Mrs Tweed said she de­cided to open her busi­ness after dis­cov­er­ing many peo­ple shop out­side of De­niliquin for fash­ion, ac­ces­sories and home­wares.

‘‘After a lot of re­search and hard work I thought it would be great to open up a shop to help lo­cals shop lo­cal,’’ she said.

‘‘We’re now eight months old and it’s been amaz­ing . . . the com­mu­nity has em­braced us with open arms.

‘‘We try and help out with vouch­ers as much as we can to all schools, sport­ing events and other fundrais­ers that are on and spon­sor the two lo­cal foot­ball/net­ball clubs.

‘‘Hav­ing the shop has also helped me be­come part of the Deni com­mu­nity and make lots of great friends.’’
