Tourism stance wel­comed

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Letters - Ken Har­ring­ton, Kal­gar­itch

It was very heart­en­ing to see the Bus­sel­ton City Coun­cil has adopted a firmer stand on the use of the re­gion’s tourism brand­ing.

Too of­ten we have seen the “Mar­garet River Re­gion” brand pre­sented with­out any men­tion of Bus­sel­ton at all.

I re­mem­ber walk­ing into our new Rail­way House and see­ing the staff wear­ing the Mar­garet River Re­gion badges.

I asked why was there no men­tion of Bus­sel­ton on their badge when this was, in fact, in Bus­sel­ton.

They didn’t know — it wasn’t their do­ing, l know. The Mar­garet River-Bus­sel­ton Tourism As­so­ci­a­tion feels there are only a few peo­ple un­happy with the cur­rent brand­ing.

The trou­ble with putting you head in the sand is the view other peo­ple get to see of you.
