We are proud to have been awarded the AHA|SA 2018 Award for Community Service & Support.
While the operation of the hotel is a key priority, owing to the hotel’s regional location and Community ownership,
significant effort is expended with involvement in a wide range of community interests. Support of sporting institutions is important to the structure and sociability of the region but we also support a range of emotional and social issues from assistance to disadvantaged families, through to educational support for kids and employment of local staff and contractors. The hotel purchasing policy dictates that we always look local before considering external buying choices so as to support our local businesses where possible.
With over $60,000 donated back to the community in cash, in addition to in-kind support such as accommodation, meals, raffle prize donations, room hire donation and more, the Vine Inn is excited to have received this award.
