Paying it forward scores local tavern top award

By Morgan de Smidt 

THE Parkerville Tavern has taken home top honours at this year’s state hospitality awards.

Alongside Marina Mindarie, Parkerville Tavern was the joint winner of the Community Service Award at the 2021 Australian Hotels Association (WA) Hospitality Awards for Excellence.

The award recognised Parkerville’s contribution to the community for its ‘Pay it Forward’ meals that can be purchased for a local or family member doing it tough.

Owners T’Anne Mills and Ryan Chandler said they felt elated when announced as winners.

“We were honoured to have been nominated in the first place and competition for this award was of a very high calibre,” Ms Mills said.

“We strive to be a hub for our community, to us ‘community’ means more than simply living in the same place, it is about caring about one another, being cohesive, inclusive and supportive.”

They were also recognised for raising $91,411 for local bushfire brigades, the Lord Mayor’s Distress Fund, Beyond Blue and Karakamia Animal Sanctuary.

Other winners included Henley Brook’s Bailey Brewing Co, a finalist in 11 categories, who were presented with the Cookery Services Employee Award and Ellenbrook’s The Brook Bar and Bistro received the PubTAB Venue Award.
