All businesses and organisations are invited to take up the challenge and put together their own Christmas display. The invitation goes to retail businesses and organisations, with or without a street frontage, as well as tradies, professional services, farmers, manufacturers and home-based businesses.

As well as promoting local businesses in the Dungog Shire to locals and visitors, there are great prizes to be won and THERE IS NO ENTRY FEE. The prizes are designed to not only offer a reward to you and your staff for getting on board but offer an incentive for customers and clients to visit, judge your efforts and in turn win a prize for voting.

DOWLING STREET CHRISTMAS PARTY COMING DECEMBER 5

 

We are pleased to announce that the Chamber in conjunction with Dungog Shire Council will present the Dowling Street Christmas Party on Wednesday, December 5 from 5 pm to 8 pm.

Last year’s success, beyond a doubt, was built on community engagement. Businesses, community associations, schools, churches, volunteers and individuals all came together and offered a positive shared family experience. It was so good we just have to do it again and this time, make it even better.

We really want to make this a community inclusive event with a focus on promoting local businesses and community organisations, encouraging community support, and of course verychild-friendlyy. Come along and join in the fun. Businesses are being encouraged to extend their trading hours and the event will coincide with the IGA Food and Wine Fair and Combined Churches Carols at the James Theatre.

EVENT BANNERS FOR LIONESS PARK

 

Way back in 2017 Dungog District Chamber of Commerce applied for a grant through the NSW Community Building Partnership to install streetscape banners for our community advertise events and celebrations. Our original grant application was for the banners to be erected in Dowling Street. Unfortunately, only partial funding was received, however not to be beaten we used our funding and relocated our banners to Lioness Park. Finally today our first banners went up. Our thanks to Dungog Shire Council, in particular, Ivan Skaines and Dungog Shire Events for helping with the project. Also many thanks to Col Norman for hanging them.

If you would like to advertise your community event or celebration please contact me at president@ddcc.org.au or Ivan Skaines at IvanS@dungog.nsw.gov.au
