Cham­ber of com­merce open day to sup­port busi­ness

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS / WELCOME -

CHILDERS Cham­ber of Com­merce opened the doors to the Mul­ti­cul­tural cen­tre last Sat­ur­day morn­ing to host a busi­ness open day, giv­ing busi­ness in town the op­por­tu­nity to put a face to the name.

Tak­ing to so­cial me­dia early Sat­ur­day morn­ing, mem­ber of the cham­ber, Julie Green put a shout out to busi­ness and lo­cals to come down to the cen­tre and see what the re­gion has on of­fer.

Only a hand­ful of ded­i­cated busi­ness own­ers made the ef­fort to at­tend with many phon­ing in on the day to can­cel.

Childers was alive with ac­tion as the main draw card, il­lus­tra­tor Terry Den­ton, was in town, which could pos­si­bly been the cause to the poor at­ten­dance on the day.

Mrs Green said the open day was an op­por­tu­nity for busi­ness own­ers to meet each other and to show­case their wares to the pub­lic.

“Childers has plenty to of­fer and you don’t need to travel far to get it,”

“It’s about shop­ping lo­cal and sup­port­ing lo­cal busi­ness,”

Look­ing around the room it was an op­por­tu­nity for se­nior stu­dents to pos­si­bly net­work their way into a career.

Farm­ing around the re­gion and keeping it lo­cal is hot topic with more stu­dents want­ing to re­main in their com­mu­nity af­ter grad­u­at­ing school.

High un­em­ploy­ment in re­gional ar­eas is forc­ing kids out of the re­gion to look for work.

Sup­port­ing lo­cal busi­ness can help grow and sub-stain long term growth.

All are welcome at the Cham­ber of com­merce meet­ings on the first Tues­day every month at the Isis Cul­tural Cen­tre, at 7pm. Come to net­work and share your ideas for Childers.

The Childers Cham­ber of Com­merce is com­mit­ted to growing and de­vel­op­ing Childers and sur­round­ing ar­eas by:

En­cour­ag­ing new in­vest­ment.

Sup­port­ing lo­cal busi­ness. De­vel­op­ing tourism. Value adding to ex­ist­ing en­ter­prises.
