Busi­ness bo­nanza at Charleville street party

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

THE BUSI­NESS com­mu­nity of Charleville banded to­gether this month cel­e­brat­ing the fes­tive sea­son and the cul­mi­na­tion of a six-week Shop Lo­cal cam­paign.

The Charleville Christ­mas Street Party at­tracted res­i­dents to the CBD with mar­kets, live mu­sic and ex­tended trad­ing, or­gan­ised by res­i­dents San­dra Cur­rie and Carmel Wil­liams.

With an­other com­pleted event un­der her belt, Ms Cur­rie said she would con­sider it a suc­cess for the small team who put it to­gether.

“The street party wasn’t as big as last year but it was still a good time and there were plenty of peo­ple around, vis­it­ing the stalls and eat­ing plenty of food.

Look­ing back on years gone by, Ms Cur­rie said Shop Lo­cal and the street party have been an en­dur­ing as­pect of the Charleville busi­ness com­mu­nity.

Af­ter see­ing the ef­fects of the shop lo­cal cam­paign, Ms Cur­rie said spend­ing any money in town could make a dif­fer­ence.
