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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
