THE STORY BEHIND OUR TROPHIES

Better Business Partnership commissioned Ku-ring-gai Men's Shed to build this year's award trophies out of reclaimed and recycled materials.
The awards are made from the last remaining sections of old hull plate of the steam ship John Oxley with the bases made from the original teak decking.
The John Oxley is a 700-ton steamship built for the Queensland Harbour Trust in 1927.
