In­vest­ing in Childers, the money stays in Childers Troy Ma­dle Cham­ber pres­i­dent

THE Childers Cham­ber of Com­merce has launched a new cam­paign, Bring it to Childers.

Cham­ber pres­i­dent Troy Ma­dle said the cam­paign was cre­ated by the new ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee to en­cour­age greater com­mu­nity in­put to help the town grow.

“The cham­ber is still all about fos­ter­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion, par­tic­i­pa­tion and re­pair­ing our so­cial fab­ric,” he said.

“If we can get bet­ter at these three things, lo­cal businesses will pros­per, the lo­cal econ­omy will grow, and ev­ery­one in town will be bet­ter off,” he said.

“The Bring it to Childers cam­paign is a prime ex­am­ple of how this can play out in prac­tice.

“If ev­ery­one in town has their say as to what we’re miss­ing, be it a sports store, mu­sic or bike shop, the cham­ber is then armed with sta­tis­tics re­quired to take to the var­i­ous re­tail­ers and pro­fes­sion­als.

“This makes it eas­ily recog­nis­able to businesses that their ser­vices are de­sired in Childers.”

Mr Ma­dle said when gaps were iden­ti­fied and filled, lo­cals would make fewer trips out of town, sav­ing time and money.

“In­vest­ing in Childers, the money stays in Childers,” he said.

“When­ever we leave town for some­thing we couldn’t pur­chase here, for con­ve­nience we buy other things too, things we could have bought from businesses in Childers.

“This is your chance to in­flu­ence what’s go­ing on in town, and it’s easy to get in­volved.”

Res­i­dents can fill in a sur­vey at businesses around town, or email a list of sug­ges­tions to sec­re­tary@childer­scham­ber.com.au.
