Applications Open for RWNZ Award 2010


9 November 2009

For immediate release

Boutique tourism operator Tora Coastal Walk is still enjoying the fruits of winning the RWNZ Enterprising Rural Woman Award 2009.

Co-owner Kiri Elworthy says double the usual number of people came to enjoy the three day Wairarapa coastal walk during October, attributing the growth in business to publicity from their award win earlier this year.

Applications are now open for the RWNZ Enterprising Rural Women Award 2010 and Kiri Elworthy strongly encourages other rural businesswomen to enter, saying the award was a great boost for the business she runs in partnership with Jenny Bargh.

“If anyone was thinking about entering, I would highly recommend it. It has given us a great sense that what we are doing is right – it has revitalised us.”

Further information and entry forms are available on the RWNZ website http://

Entries close on 17 February 2010.
