Moorelands Bush Nursery claims double awards win

MOORELANDS Bush Nursery have capped an incredible 12 months with a double-win at the Maranoa Business Awards on Saturday night.

The weekend nursery business, owned by Julie, Leesa and Brad Murray, won Small Business of the Year (sponsored by Palmers Coaches) and the Retail, Wholesale and Distribution Award (sponsored by the Explorer's Inn).

Moorelands Bush Nursery now has three gongs from the awards in just two years, after taking out The Western Star Customer Service Award in 2015.

The wins were made even more impressive considering their competition, which featured Coomber Bros Jewellers, Fourth Born, Maranoa Mini Motors, Brenorrs, Matthew Edwards Podiatry, Darby Hicks Electrical and Ezy As Fitness across both categories.

In other award news, Boobook Eco Tours took out Medium Business of the Year, beating out Rayham Engineering, Mind Body Soul, Brenorrs and the Tasting Co to win.
