Here’s a list of some of the nominations. More will appear in coming days.

Centrepoint Childcare offers the many benefits of a smaller, family orientated business.

Centrepoint Childcare has the advantage of being located in the CBD, in Peel Street.

The centre has permanent bookings, ideal for easy access to shops, or workplace.

There is a focus on delivering a high degree of education and being a smaller centre allows staff to give each child personal attention.

We are able to develop a close relationship and create a family-like atmosphere for your child and you as a parent.

We also believe your child is far more likely to gain lifelong friendships with the other children and form wholesome values they will carry forward into society

It all starts at childcare and we honour the word “CARE”.

PRD Nationwide is the expert in real estate. The business’s purpose is to help locals with their real estate needs and desires.

Principal Dean Cummins began the business because he had a vision of a new style of real estate agency.

He wanted to create an agency where young people could be developed who had an interest in real estate as a career so they could develop and become future owners of the business.

PRDnationwide's top three services are property sales, property management and real estate advice. 

“PRDnationwide would love to become involved in peoples' lives to help find solutions to their current dilemma, be they vendor, purchaser, tenant, landlord or investor,” Mr Cummins said.

The team focuses on the clients' needs rather than the results for the business and in turn, the benefits will flow on.

A core value at PRDnationwide is work-life balance and the team helps each other out and will be happy to attend work functions if necessary.

“What's ahead is new technology with a mix of good old fashioned customer service,” Mr Cummins said.

“In five years’ time, we will be employing 40 people and will outgrow our current building and move to new premises.”

For more information phone Mr Cummins on 6763 7000 or visit prd.com.au

The centre is a fun, educational hub for youth, providing advocacy and networking opportunities, school holiday programs, outreach events, entertainment and workshops for school students. 

The state-of-the-art facility is run by six employees who dedicate their time to create an engaging space for youth in the Tamworth Region. 

It is also home to the Regional Youth Interagency Group, a meeting place for agencies and service providers within the region.

The Capitol Theatre Tamworth caters for an audience of 402 and is a sought-after venue, providing a “one-stop” service for touring and local productions. 

The theatre is named after an old theatre that stood almost in the same position, the Capitol Theatre and shares its foyer and bar with the Forum6 Cinema.
