Cham­ber pre­pares for fes­tive shop­ping

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

CHRIST­MAS is fast ap­proach­ing. And the Gayn­dah Cham­ber of Com­merce is plan­ning the fes­tiv­i­ties.

At its next meet­ing, the cham­ber will de­cide the date for Christ­mas late night trad­ing.

Shops on Gayn­dah’s Cap­per St tra­di­tion­ally open late once a year around Christ­mas time.

The street is also closed for the Christ­mas carnival.

A suit­able date will be cho­sen with in­put from the community and pres­i­dent Hugh McKid has urged busi­ness own­ers to at­tend the meet­ing.

The cham­ber is be­ing steered by a new com­mit­tee that is seek­ing mem­ber­ship from proac­tive res­i­dents wish­ing to con­trib­ute to the growth of the town.

MrMcKid said the na­tion­ally-recog­nised Cham­ber of Com­merce spoke for Gayn­dah’s lo­cal busi­nesses.

‘Mem­bers will have a voice, and they can make things hap­pen in their community.’
