Medina newsagent joins City of Kwinana grant re­cip­i­ents

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph News -

A long­stand­ing fea­ture of the Kwinana com­mu­nity, Medina Newsagency, re­cently joined a num­ber of lo­cal busi­nesses to ben­e­fit from the City of Kwinana’s Lo­cal Com­mer­cial and Ac­tiv­ity Cen­tre Im­prove­ment Grants.

Sev­en­teen busi­nesses across Medina, Parmelia, Ore­lia and Cal­ista re­cently re­ceived up to $3000 in funds to im­prove their shopfronts or stores.

Medina Newsagency owner Linda Collings said the up­grades to her store had made it more invit­ing, pro­vided more se­cu­rity and also meant the store wasn’t ex­posed to the el­e­ments.

Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said the Lo­cal Com­mer­cial and Ac­tiv­ity Cen­tre Im­prove­ment Grant was part of the City’s on­go­ing com­mit­ment to help lo­cal busi­nesses flour­ish.

“These smaller neigh­bour­hood shop­ping ar­eas not only play a vital role in the lo­cal econ­omy but also pro­vide es­sen­tial ser­vices to sur­round­ing res­i­dents, of­ten be­com­ing the cen­tral ‘hub’ that de­fines the neigh­bour­hood,” Ms Adams said.

“It is fan­tas­tic to see lo­cal busi­nesses al­ready mak­ing im­prove­ments thanks to this fund­ing.”
