Buy lo­cal push to have big re­wards

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

THE Shop in the North Bur­nett cam­paign is a real boost to lo­cal busi­nesses and the Biggen­den Cham­ber of Com­merce con­grat­u­lates the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil for this ini­tia­tive.

Biggen­den Cham­ber of Com­merce will be hold­ing its own “shop lo­cally” cam­paign of two nights ac­com­mo­da­tion for two at King­fisher Re­sort on Fraser Is­land, re­turn pas­sen­ger ferry trans­fer for two, daily buf­fet break­fast, full-day four-wheel drive tour for two and a $100 din­ner voucher.

We hope to have the shop lo­cally cam­paign up and run­ning by mid-Novem­ber and it will be drawn on De­cem­ber 20 at the APEX Christ­mas Fair. The win­ner must be present at the draw to win the prize.

We have been as­sured the long-awaited Biggen­den and Dis­trict Phone Book will be ready to col­lect from the prin­ters on Fri­day, so look for­ward to buy­ing your copy from Mon­day on­wards. The books will be avail­able to pur­chase at The Cof­fee Pozzee, Biggen­den Bak­ery and Biggen­den Newsagency at a cost of $8.50 per book. The cham­ber thanks all the sup­port­ing busi­nesses.

The roses in the main street gave a beau­ti­ful show of flow­ers to her­ald spring. This heat­wave will be a very test­ing time for the coun­cil’s gar­den staff as they at­tempt to keep the gar­dens healthy. Our thoughts are with all mem­bers of our com­mu­nity who rely on the weather – may abun­dant rains come very soon.

It was won­der­ful to have a full bus of 20 peo­ple go to the blood bank on Tues­day night. Well done!
