Lord Mayor’s Commendations for Docklands

The chamber is in full swing promoting events and functions that support the Docklands community.  

We are extremely proud to see local icons and members of the Docklands Chamber of Commerce named in the Lord Mayor’s Commendations for 2015.

Neil and Kerry York from NR York Plumbing Pty Ltd achieving a real milestone, recognised with a Silver award from the Lord Mayor for 25 years in business. Neil and Kerry provide a full range of professional plumbing services from old period buildings to skyscrapers, all from Docklands.

Well done Paul Humphreys, from Robinson’s in the City. Paul provides old style country hospitality with short-term accommodation for visitors to Melbourne, receiving a Bronze award for 10 years in business.

Also with a Bronze award is John Scardamaglia of  Berth Restaurant and Bar, one of the most consistent quality restaurants in the Docklands, with its modern Australian food and water edge location, the perfect venue.

Another quality restaurant with a Bronze award is Bopha Devi Docklands delivering the flavours of Cambodia from the business partnership of Paul Thickett and Chan Uoy, congratulations.

Daniel Rocco Tenglia from Esprit Hair has set a new standard in an industry where people come and go, he has been in business for over 10 years, also receiving a Bronze award from the Lord Mayor.

The Seniors Festival

Building on last year’s event, the partnership between the Docklands Chamber of Commerce, the City of Melbourne and the Department of Health and Human Services are proud to present the Discover Docklands closing festival for the seniors’ festivities in 2015.  

This will be an exceptional weekend, come and join us in Docklands – an Age Friendly precinct.

Don’t miss the seniors free morning tea, as part of this year’s festival. Harbour Town Docklands will be offering a free morning tea to the first 750 seniors that visit Harbour Town on Saturday, October 10 and Sunday, October 11 between 10am and 12pm.

Seniors simply need to visit the Customer Service Lounge and show their Seniors Card to collect their free morning tea voucher, which will provide a list of participating cafes/restaurants and their morning tea offer.

See what is on at the Medibank IceHouse, take a free ferry ride, watch, dance and listen to the music at the Spiegletent or take a flight on the Melbourne Star. Look for the entertainment on the promenades at Victoria Harbour and NewQuay.

Why not take the free tours to the Alma Doepel and the Mission to Seafarers and then have high tea on the Lady Cutler?

You can really discover Docklands with the Life Activities Clubs Victoria or join in the action at the Dock Library.
