Pilbara News - - News - Louise Alling­ham

The Busi­ness and Com­mu­nity Direc­tory for 2016-2017 will be land­ing on the doorsteps of City of Kar­ratha res­i­dents in the com­ing weeks.

Kar­ratha and Dis­tricts Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try chief ex­ec­u­tive and City of Kar­ratha Deputy Mayor John Lally said the direc­tory was like a “lit­tle bi­ble for the com­mu­nity”.

“It’s a direc­tory of all the lo­cal busi­nesses, but it’s not only lo­cal busi­nesses it’s got com­mu­nity groups,” he said.

City of Kar­ratha chief ex­ec­u­tive Chris Adams launched the direc­tory last Wed­nes­day at KDCCI’s Busi­ness Af­ter Hours event.

“We are very pleased to sup­port the 2016-2017 direc­tory, it is a ben­e­fi­cial re­source for our lo­cal busi­ness and res­i­den­tial com­mu­ni­ties,” Mr Adams said.

Lo­cal and vis­it­ing pho­tog­ra­phers were given the op­por­tu­nity to get their Pil­bara snaps on the front cover of the direc­tory by en­ter­ing the Kar­ratha Vis­i­tor Cen­tre’s “Visit Kar­ratha” com­pe­ti­tion.

Kar­ratha Vis­i­tor Cen­tre man­ager Jane Knapp said it was im­pos­si­ble to choose one win­ner.

“We got over I think it was 150 en­tries so there ended up be­ing 16 win­ners,” she said.

“We couldn’t get it down and they all cap­tured the Pil­bara and why ev­ery­one loves it so much so it was very hard to make a choice.”
