Right royal feast for the media

THE South West Development Commission did not let the international media contingent following Queen Elizabeth to Busselton go past without wooing their hearts through their stomachs.

Representatives from the SWDC, the Busselton Shire Council, South West Regional College of TAFE and the Ministry of Education seized the moment and provided the media with a meal to remember which mirrored the Queen’s own lunch.

Their efforts paid off with international press praising Busselton as the most hospitable town on their Australian tour.

SWDC’s Janet Payton said the day’s events were orchestrated with great care as they were conscious that the eyes of the world would be on Busselton’s Royal visit.

South West Regional College of TAFE was responsible for preparing and serving the Royal luncheon.

TAFE’s hospitality, tourism and retail department program manager Tony Ashbolt said it was a great honour for the students to cater for such an event.

“This occasion helped us to demonstrate the importance of the training we offer at the college and allowed us to test it at the highest level,” Mr Ashbolt said.
