Congratulations to Yumba Bimbi Support Services and New Beginnings Personal Training for being voted the People’s Choice CH Heroes.

The People’s Choice winners were announced at a CH Heroes recognition and networking function in Emerald in May, after more than 520 online votes were tallied.  All 40 businesses who were nominated have each been presented with a certificate of recognition.

The Central Highlands Community Heroes (CH Heroes) program was developed to recognise small business owners who are making the region a better place to live, work, learn and play.  CH Heroes is a Queensland Small Business Week initiative of the Central Highlands Development Corporation, funded by the Local Buying Foundation and supported by the Central Highlands Regional Council and the Bowen Basin Business Development Initiative.
