Simply spend $10 or more at any participating businesses between the 13 March 2017 and 30 June 2017 to enter the draw. A winner will be drawn every week until 30 June 2017.

The competition is an initiative by Gympie Regional Council to encourage support and patronage during the Smithfield Street Revitalisation construction period.

The Revitalisation project will introduce new street furniture, pedestrian crossing points, significant street tree planting and landscaping, streetscape lighting, public art, and widened pedestrian pavement areas to encourage alfresco dining and encourage an ‘eat street’ atmosphere and is scheduled for completion late October (weather permitting).

The project is jointly funded by the Queensland Government’s Building our Regions program and Gympie Regional Council.

To enter the competition, write your name and phone number on your receipt and place in the entry box at one of the eight participating businesses throughout Smithfield Street including:

One entry per valid receipt.

The winning vouchers can only be redeemed at the participating businesses between 27 March 2017 and 30 November 2017.


Mayor's Column - Wednesday, 17 January 2018 Mayor's Column - Wednesday, 17 January 2018

With the Christmas and New Year break now well and truly over for most of us, I can only hope the majority had a restful break, catching up with family and friends.

Some of our new facilities have literally been swamped with over 17,000 attendances at the Aquatic Centre in December and River to Rail trail along the Mary river having a full carpark on many occasions, and of course our coast has hosted great crowds with fantastic feedback from our tourism operators. These have been great projects for our region. 

 

As we now look to the future, I am very excited about 2018, which will see the completion of the Rattler, a major tourism attraction for this region as well as the rolling out of many other projects aimed at improving the liveability of the region and supporting the economy.

Like every other council in Australia we cannot meet all the requests of the community and need to prioritise services and projects but I am excited about this region's future and I look forward to continuing to work with Council, our community groups and our residents who continue to positively promote our wonderful region and who actively contribute to making our community such a great place to live.

Cr. Mick Curran, Mayor
