Through the initiative, the Chamber of Commerce will host a dedicated online directory for Waverley businesses to list information about what services they’re offering and how the community can best support them. The directory will be free for businesses to register their information and make updates moving forward.
"Small businesses are the heart and soul of Waverley and it’s this community who have been hit particularly hard by the effects of COVID-19" said Mayor Paula Masselos.
"Where possible, we are asking residents to make a commitment to shop locally and support our much-loved businesses. Whether you’re buying groceries for the week or picking up a coffee, small actions like these are what will help our businesses get through this crisis".
Waverley Council and the Chamber of Commerce will be dedicated to the ongoing promotion of the Keep It Local campaign and its business directly across all our communication channels.
Council is strongly encouraging all local businesses in operation to register their details so that they can be part of this important initiative. It only takes a few minutes to register. Sign up and make sure your voice is heard by the community.
