Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

A WIN­DOW dis­play com­pe­ti­tion has seen nine lo­cal busi­nesses get into the spirit of the Childers Fes­ti­val by dec­o­rat­ing their shopfronts.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil’s com­mu­nity ser­vices spokes­woman Judy Peters said the com­pe­ti­tion was an ini­tia­tive of Friends of the Fes­ti­val, sup­ported by the coun­cil and the Childers Cham­ber of Com­merce.

“This com­pe­ti­tion is re­ally about lo­cal busi­nesses sup­port­ing the Childers Fes­ti­val and in turn see­ing the fes­ti­val sup­port lo­cal busi­nesses,” Cr Peters said. The win­ners are: 1. The Old Phar­macy. 2. Isis Hard­ware. 3. Dol­lars and Sense. Highly com­mended: Isis Fam­ily Day Care.

Di­vi­sional rep­re­sen­ta­tive Cr Tony Ric­cia­rdi said the dec­o­ra­tions would re­main in place through­out the fes­ti­val, cre­at­ing a link be­tween the fes­ti­val and lo­cal busi­nesses.

“Coun­cil would like to thank the com­mu­nity, Cham­ber of Com­merce, Friends of the Fes­ti­val, and in par­tic­u­lar com­mit­tee mem­ber Meredyth Cas­tro, for their in­volve­ment and sup­port of this ini­tia­tive,” he said.
