Congratulations to Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell MP, and his team. Over 150 locals from small businesses had their moment to shine last month at the second annual Glass House Small Business Awards Gala Event, aka the Glassys.

With almost 100 businesses and over 50 employees nominated this year, Andrew was thrilled that so many members of the community took the time to vote and show our local businesses how important they are in our community.

“The night was all about promoting and encouraging the many local small businesses we have in Glass House and giving them the opportunity to bask in the spotlight, if only for one night. It’s our way of saying thank you for everything you do”, he said.

Michelle Gilmore and Karen Muir were thrilled that the Hinterland Times was nominated, and see the Gold Glassy crowned to Renae’s Pantry (Palmwoods)

and Rhylie Coutts (Wamuran IGA) for Employee.
