Workshops, a new website, pushing for water security and our new main street – it’s been a massive year for the Guyra & District Chamber of Commerce, president Aileen MacDonald said.

And 2018 looks just as productive with initiatives to promote shopping locally and a Local Government review on the cards to make sure Guyra is heard by the newly formed Armidale Regional Council.

It’s also been a year for accolades. “We were finalists in the NSW Business Chamber Regional Awards,” Mrs MacDonald said.

“The TroutFest was a runner up in the Innovation Awards.”

As for next year?

“We’ll again have a presence at the Lamb and Potato Festival and we’re going to launch a shopping promotion initiative,” she said.

“We want to grow our membership and be part of the main street upgrade.”

The chamber will hold its Christmas party at Rafters on December 21 from 5.30pm. Bookings are essential.
