Party time as Ramadan Nights wins top award

Party time as Ramadan Nights wins top award Tantalising delights and more than 250,000 visitors was enough to convince judges Ramadan Nights stood out from the rest.

​Tantalising delights and more than 250,000 visitors was enough to convince judges Ramadan Nights stood out from the rest.
City of Canterbury Bankstown took out the LGNSW Local Economic Contribution Award last week for their nationally renowned event.
This year, like most things the LGNSW Awards were run differently, however this did not nullify the nine Council projects and initiatives supported by the Canterbury-Bankstown community that were recognised for their impact on the City.
Mayor Khal Asfour said it is a community effort not just from Council but from every individual that plays a part in our success.
“It is an honour to be recognised for the work we do for our community and winning the Local Economic Contribution Award with Ramadan Nights is the icing on the cake,” he said.
The Local Economic Contribution Award acknowledges a Council project that has enhanced the economic wellbeing of their local government area and increased the value of the city.
“Ramadan Nights has evolved organically over the years, transforming Lakemba into a buzzing marketplace,” Mayor Asfour said.
“More than 250,000 people from Canterbury-Bankstown and beyond attend the event each year, making CBCity the number one place to be to experience Ramadan.
“Every year it is an opportunity for people to come together and support culture and economy in our City.”
On top of taking out one of the prominent awards, CBCity was highly commended for its contribution to the environment with the Eyes On It Campaign, successfully reducing illegal dumping in the City.
CBCity were also finalists in the following award categories:
  • Asset Management and Infrastructure Initiatives over $1.5 million;
  • Innovative Leadership and Management;
  • Creative Communities;
  • Special Project Initiative;
  • Community Development and Services; and
  • Community Partnerships and Collaboration.​
