Their dedication and passion have been rewarded with the business being announced as a finalist in the 2014 Telstra WA Australian Business Awards.

Ann and Gary are thrilled to have been recognised as a finalist in the Start-Up category. ‘As a young business, we are honoured and humbled to be a finalist and our team are so excited,’ Ann said.

She attributed the growth of their business to the support of the local community and repeat customers.

Walking into Valenti’s on the Brook is like stepping into yesteryear.

With its vintage 1940-50s d�cor, the tea room is set on the banks of Susannah Brook.

‘Our tea room is the perfect place to take some time out and enjoy a cup of tea and scones,’ Gary said.

Winners of the awards were due to be announced at Crown Perth last night. Winners of each category will proceed to the national awards in Melbourne on August 7.

Valenti’s on the Brook is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm at 72 Bisdee Road, Millendon.
