New business book for Bannockburn
FORTY members of the Bannockburn Chamber of Commerce came together last week to celebrate the release of the second annual Bannockburn and District Business Directory.
The sixty-page color booklet has been designed to promote local businesses and encourage Bannockburn area residents to support businesses, services and trades near them when they need it.
President Bronwyn Davie said 85 companies are featured in this edition.
“The directory was produced by chamber volunteers, including Emma Jennings from On Track Virtual and Leanne Adams from Will Design, and was printed by Print Design Australia,” she said.
“We have also incorporated new community pages to encourage people to use local services, for example there is a page sponsored by Corangamite member Libby Coker on childcare options.
“It will be distributed by member businesses and can be picked up at the local mall.”
The launch event at Bannockburn Bowls Club was also an opportunity for the chamber to welcome new members, with businesses receiving certificates.
“The petanque club also got new members this year. They have a listing in the directory, and we posted about their new lights,” Ms. Davie said.
“We hope to use them as much as possible as members and will aim to host fun networking events with businesses on the greens in the future.”
Ms Coker was also present and members of Bannockburn’s SES, including Daryl Jeran, made a presentation, calling for support to establish a new, updated unit facility.
