Childers shows its real heart
WHEN it comes to examples of communities with heart there are few better examples than that demonstrated by the people of Childers and district.
Childers has always been a prosperous town, a town built on hard work, a pioneering spirit and genuine care for each other.
The CBD area has a buzz about it and invariably draws positive comment from people passing through.
The fact the community is serviced by the “big three” banks as well as numerous smaller branches and financial institutions is a key point in ascertaining the economic viability of the region. The recent Childers Festival again provided an opportunity to showcase this beautiful community and, notably, the main street business area to an audience in its tens of thousands.
The business centre is progressive and is served by the very active and involved local Chamber of Commerce.
The strong business heart provides all essential shopping facilities in a compact, well maintained CBD. Residents of the district have a loyalty to their local traders who in
turn offer value, variety and ongoing support for community organisations and initiatives.
The Childers CBD is one of the most attractive and engaging shopping strips across the region and this reputation will be enhanced even further with additional Streetscape projects planned for the near future.
The expanded shopping precincts which also take in the Woolworths supermarket at the northern approaches to town clearly demonstrate the confidence outside retailers and developers have in the strong future prospects for the Childers district.
