Mango season is at its end for another year.  While we celebrate and value the fact that our community produces a quarter of Australia’s mangoes, our tourist ventures, other local producers, businesses and community organisations do a fantastic job to promote our municipality. We are not only the ‘best place to live’ but the powerhouse of the Top End economy. Congratulations to all businesses who have recently been nominated or won awards (including the prestigious Brolga awards), starred on National TV, provided our visitors with delicious tastes to remember or showcased the creative talents of our residents young and older.  Thank you: Crazy Acres, Kakadu Blue, Humpty Doo Barra, Friends of Library, Smile-a-Mile Fun Bus, Fred’s Pass Markets and the Christmas Craft events (happening in the next few weeks) for your contributions to our economy and community.
