Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP208883 See more pictures More photographs available at www.innerwestweekly.com.au THE Inner West's best businesses celebrated a great year of trading at the Inner-West Weekly True Local Business Awards at Wests Ashfield last week. In an evening of spirited celebration, businesses forged new ties and, despite the lack of a dance floor, made their own space to dance the night away to the Swinging Sixties. Nominees cheered each other's successes and many were overcome with emotion. Among the winners were D'Lush Hair at Drummoyne, which picked up the Readers' Choice award. D'Lush had been nominated for the awards more times than any other business. Other awards presented on the night included the Employee Excellence award and Community Contribution of the Year. A complete list of winners will be published in next week's Inner- West Weekly. Deputy's up in arms FIONA BRADY The new logo represents structures and the eclectic mix of people in Ashfield. Deputy Mayor Morris Mansour wants to keep the old logo. A PIZZA topping or a pile of vomit. That's how some residents have described the new Ashfield Coun- cil logo to deputy mayor Morris Mansour. The Liberal councillor is calling for the new logo to be ditched after he received ''unsolicited com- plaints'' from residents and busi- ness people. ''They said very rude things. For example, one man said it looks like vomit, one lady said it was a joke, other people say 'just simply get rid of it','' Cr Mansour said. But council general manager Ken Gainger said he had received ''overwhelmingly positive'' feedback about the new design which was introduced because of concerns the old logo -- a Scottish coat of arms -- didn't reflect Ashfield's multicultural resi- dents. The council has spent $10,000 on redeveloping the logo. Egyptian-born Cr Mansour now intends to move a notice of motion calling for the council to revert to using the Scottish crest. ''I came to this country for what it offers and I want to build on it rather than become a maverick and just destroy what it has because I happen to have a gripe,'' he said. Cr Mansour added that he was interested to hear the public's views on the matter. ''If, for example, the majority of people would say, 'Oh no we like the new one', I would give up,'' he said. Mr Gainger said the new brand- ing has already been ''broadly implemented''. ''To suggest that the new brand- ing should be abandoned is very disappointing given the extensive time, effort and resources that have gone into this 12-month pro- cess,'' he said. ''Not to mention the work already completed on the Civic Centre and council website. ''Feedback on the new logo has been overwhelmingly positive from council staff and other com- munity stakeholders. ''We have only received one letter of complaint from a resident with Scottish heritage who pre- ferred the old logo.'' THE OLD LOGO A Scottish coat of arms with the Latin motto Agite Pro Viribus which, loosely translated, means ''act according to your strength''. It features the Southern Cross and the Campbell Arms in recog- nition of Robert Campbell, an early Ashfield landowner. This crest will be used on formal occasions. THE NEW LOGO Described as an urban map with stylised representations of forms and structures in the Ashfield Council area. The cluster of irregular shapes and colours are intended to represent Ashfield's ''eclec- tic mix'' of communities.
