Help pol­ish Mansfield for spring as part of cam­paign

Mansfield Courier - - NEWS -

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.
