Help polish Mansfield for spring as part of campaign
MANSFIELD township should be awash with brooms, brushes and buckets from next Monday, September 12 as part of the ‘Polish the Town for Spring’ week-long campaign.
The spruce up for spring will again be a joint initiative of Mansfield Shire Council and the Mansfield District Business Association (MDBA).
Mayor Paul Sladdin explained how the polish will improve the appearance of Mansfield’s business hubs along High and Highett streets.
“With the busy spring event season and summer holiday period just around the corner, it’s a great time to spruce up and enhance the appearance of our main streets, in readiness for our visitors,” Cr Sladdin said.
Council’s chief executive officer, Alex Green, said polish the town is a positive initiative that provides a great focus on refreshing the streetscape of Mansfield after the winter period, with minimal outlay.
“A shared responsibility approach has been taken and businesses have been asked to pitch in by cleaning in and around their shop fronts, creating new window displays and the like,” Mr Green said.
Council staff will again operate the footpath scrubber, sprucing up infrastructure and be seen carrying out a general tidy up during the week.
The MDBA is encouraging all local businesses to get into the spring spruce-up spirit to enhance the work being done by council.
So put a spring in your step and your business, and get cleaning and creative to polish up the town.
