New campaign launched to highlight small businesses

The City of Whittlesea has launched an exciting campaign designed to help promote local business and help members of the community.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has hit the business community hard. Many small businesses are shut, others are limited to online and some have had to close due to financial stress.

You can still support your local businesses by Go Local First.

Each week the social media campaign Still Here 4 You will focus on a different theme/industry giving residents an opportunity to share online how they are supporting local business during the restrictions and give them a chance to win a $50 voucher to spend locally at one of those businesses.

Simply visit Whittlesea Unites Facebook page and tell us: How did you support a local produce store such as a grocer, butcher, baker, or cellar this week? Let us know in the comments and tag the business if possible so others can find them.

Still Here 4 You is supported by community radio station Plenty Valley FM.

The campaign will be bolstered by an online business directory which is currently being developed.

It forms part of the $500,000 Business Relief and Resilience Program which was funded by Council in September.
