Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 5 Hansard (13 May) . . Page.. 1412..

As I said, the club of the year—small award went to the National Press Club and the club of the year—medium award went to Vikings Town Centre. The club of the year—large award went to the Hellenic Club of Canberra. The 2014 best bistro award went to the Vikings Town Centre. The 2014 best restaurant award went to the Peppercress at the Southern Cross Club in Tuggeranong. The 2014 best conference and event centre award went to the National Press Club.

Vikings Town Centre and Vikings Erindale took out the promotion of sport, medium and large, awards. Vikings Town Centre also took out the responsible gaming and gaming facility—medium award. The award for a large club went to the Southern Cross in Tuggeranong. The members services award—medium went to Vikings Town Centre.

So there was a fabulous representation of clubs from the valley—in particular the Vikings and Southern Cross clubs. Well done to all those involved. Clubs are an important part of our community. I look forward to the 2015 gala night and celebrating with the clubs again.

Civil Contractors Federation Earth Awards

MR WALL (Brindabella) (4.31): I rise this afternoon to pay tribute to the winners of the 2014 CCF earth awards. Last Friday evening I was pleased to once again attend the ACT Civil Contractors Federation earth awards. This year's event had a sellout attendance, as has been the case in previous years. It provided the opportunity for all businesses in the sector to come together and celebrate the successful work of some of their peers.

The awards recognise outstanding construction and environmental excellence in the civil construction area across the industry. This year's awards went to Makin Trax for their work on the Canberra Centenary Trail, Cord Civil for their work on the Narrabundah velodrome, Woden Contractors for the Parkes Way widening and bridgeworks, and the Bulk Water Alliance for their work on the Cotter Dam project.

I would like to pass on my congratulations to all of these businesses and the staff involved in these projects. I would also like to express my congratulations and thanks once again to the MBA and to the Civil Contractors Federation for their hospitality on the evening. Obviously, a big mention needs to go to all of the sponsors that were involved that make these sorts of evenings possible. I think it was a timely opportunity, given the events that have happened with some businesses in that sector over the last week, to note how important it is that all members of the Assembly and all members of the community do their part to ensure that local businesses are given every opportunity to tender for works within the ACT community to ensure the long-term viability of this industry.

Social justice

Community legal centres

DR BOURKE (Ginninderra) (4.32): However imperfectly, Australians pride ourselves on trying to give everyone a fair go and that we are a reasonably just society.
