At recent Chamber meetings, the executive decided to give financial support to the Christmas Pageant and the CBD’s Sidewalk Sale.
President Mark Hanlon said both events are highlights for the City.
“We are pleased to give our support to these functions as both cab showcase the city on good light,” the President said.
The Sidewalk Sale, co-ordinated by Chamber Treasurer, Helen Grace, is on December 18 and participants are expected to better last year’s tally of 24.
The Executive also discussed the recent news that the BH Club was in favour of looking at a transfer to the Golf Club. Mark believes this to be a good move and in the long run would benefit both parties.
Regional Council CEO, Dr Andrew Johnson told the executive that Council was in the process of submitting grants for the upgrade of the Memorial Oval precinct. Discussions were also taking place with the Northern Festival Centre on a proposed upgrade and Nyrstar’s Bertus DeVilliers said all was on track with the Transformation Project and that there would be an influx of contractors in the new year.
Regional Development Australia Yorke and Mid North CEO, Kelly-Anne Saffin outlined a host of discussions she had had with various organisations, including the Flinders Industry Leaders Group, Focus on Industry Skills and an upcoming Internal Workshop with Council.
Chamber’s next Executive Meeting is on January 29.
