Shop lo­cal and win at Town Proud

Gatton Star - - YOUR SAY - Ali Kuchel [email protected]­ton­

AS WE wind down to­wards Christ­mas, the Gat­ton Star cranks up the gears for its Town Proud cam­paign.

On Fri­day, the first three win­ners were drawn from the shop lo­cal cam­paign, each scor­ing $1000 to spend lo­cally.

You couldn’t ask for bet­ter tim­ing with Christ­mas ap­proach­ing.

To en­ter Town Proud, the task is pretty sim­ple – shop at a par­tic­i­pat­ing Lock­yer Val­ley or Som­er­set busi­ness, grab an en­try form, sta­ple your re­ceipt and drop it into one of the col­lec­tion bins.

The shop lo­cal cam­paign has a to­tal of six $1000 shop­ping vouch­ers to be won, which means there are three re­main­ing.

The next draw will take place at 4pm on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 14, at the Som­er­set Re­gional Coun­cil and will be drawn by Mayor Graeme Lehmann.

With Christ­mas ap­proach­ing, I wish I could en­ter (but the T&CS say I can­not).

Con­grat­u­la­tions to our first three win­ners, I hope the money comes in handy.

As we work our way to­wards Christ­mas, many towns across the re­gion will have their an­nual Christ­mas street par­ties this month.

Lai­d­ley kicked off last week, with Gat­ton to fol­low this week­end.

I en­cour­age ev­ery­one to get out and cel­e­brate the fes­tive sea­son. Not only is it a great out­ing but it also helps plenty of lo­cal char­i­ties and vol­un­teer or­gan­i­sa­tions.
