THRILLED with the win, the ded­i­cated vol­un­teers of the Old Phar­macy have again taken out the Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil’s Childers Fes­ti­val win­dow dis­play com­pe­ti­tion.

Old Phar­macy pres­i­dent Bev San­ta­ca­te­rina said the idea for the win­dow dis­play came from Noelene Naughton.

“We all con­trib­uted with dif­fer­ent ideas and Noelene was our cre­ative direc­tor,” Mrs San­ta­ca­te­rina said.

The win­ners were an­nounced at the Childers Fes­ti­val open­ing last Sun­day morn­ing.

Mayor Jack Dempsey said it was a credit to the com­mu­nity of Childers for its 21 years of sup­port.

“The win­dow dis­play com­pe­ti­tion en­cour­ages the busi­ness own­ers to get in­volved in the fes­ti­val,” he said.

“It’s great to see the ef­fort staff and vol­un­teers took in pre­sent­ing their win­dows.”

The fes­ti­val cel­e­brated 21 years of en­ter­tain­ment and show­cas­ing the town and the greater re­gion.

Cr Bill Trevor said the com­pe­ti­tion, or­gan­ised in part­ner­ship with the Childers Cham­ber of Com­merce, car­ried the theme of A Taste of Childers.

“There were ter­rific prizes to be won to help ad­ver­tise busi­ness, in­clud­ing an $825 SeaFM ra­dio ad­ver­tis­ing pack­age, two months of free ad­ver­tis­ing on a Tayco bill­board worth $880 or a $200 gift voucher for Chameleon Group.”

Cr Trevor said the Childers Fes­ti­val was a sig­nif­i­cant plat­form to dis­play the re­gion to its best ad­van­tage to tens of thou­sands of peo­ple.

Mrs San­ta­ca­te­rina said the Old Phar­macy would use the prize of a $200 voucher from the Chameleon Group.

“We plan to spend the voucher on new story boards for the phar­macy, and thanks to the spon­sors for the great prizes,” she said. “It was dis­ap­point­ing that more busi­nesses didn’t get in­volved.

“I look for­ward to the fes­ti­val and tak­ing part in the win­dow dis­play com­pe­ti­tion is a great way to pro­mote the town and re­gion.

“I would like to thank all our vol­un­teers for their con­tin­ued sup­port.”
