As hard as it is to believe Christmas is just around the corner and the fantastic business owners in Maleny and Montville are getting right into the planning spirit. Montville Chamber of Commerce are launching their annual shop local campaign which will use various forms of media to encourage people to do their Christmas shopping in Montville and offer prize incentives if you shop at participating stores. Also, on 1 December they will be hosting the annual ‘Lighting of the Montville Tree’ which includes children activities, the Woodie’s Santa Workshop and a visit from Santa himself. This will be held between 5.30pm and 7.30pm.
In Maleny, the Rotary Club are about to start promoting a Christmas charity initiative. We all know many people in our community take the time to reflect on those less fortunate over the Christmas period and these people will be encouraged to make a donation with something they have purchased at a local store. What a great idea. Any enquiries can be directed to Chris Brooker – 0428 712 504.
