Lillian Hope Maternity received a few comments in the “other” section so we’d like to make a special mention.

Cafe Aqua – although didn’t win “Best Cafe” category got quite a few votes and this comment from Keely: “Cafe aqua is great for the kids they have texters and crowns and paper for the kids to draw with. And also lots off high chairs and room for them unlike lots off places where its hard to have your pram and high chair and everyone is ontop of one another. Cafe aqua has lots of space for the kids and even the dog. Yes you can bring the dog !!!!”

Community OOSH Services although there was no applicable category on the voting form Kirk adds: “I would like to add Community OOSH Services (Out Of School Hours) to the list somewhere but there isnt a category that suits. It would be a shame not to include such a fantastic services that truely suports families in ways something like a bakery could never compare. Community OOSH services is a life line to working families on the coffs coast and provides a fun and exciting experience for literally hundreds of children every week.”

And even this website gets a special mention from Dawn: “Coffs For Kids ! how else would we all find out the fantastic things that are going on in Coffs without such a great website. You should be nominated for an award for the fantastic work you do.”
