Mundaring Chamber of Commerce supports local business through advocacy, promotion, training and association/ networking. We advocate on behalf of our business community to ensure local government policies support and encourage the business activity required by a vibrant, sustainable community.
As we come towards the end of the year, Mundaring Dental Centre is getting super excited to see all of its patients finishing their treatment. A lot of the centre’s patients book appointments before the start of “silly season” so their smile can be the best it can be. They also benefit from the use of their health fund. As of January 1st, most of the health funds re-set, and have a ‘use it or lose it’ policy, which means whatever you don’t use, it doesn’t roll on to the next year.
Welcome summer!! Shire of Mundaring invites its local cafes, restaurants and food outlets to support the Summer of Entertainment by offering event day specials. Event goers will be encouraged to pack a picnic to enjoy at each event and we would like to be able to promote a shop local approach, encouraging our community to pick up a pizza, picnic hamper, sushi, kebabs etc from one of their local stores before heading to the event. Or for the Twilight Tunes series, to consider enjoying the concert and then going on to a local restaurant for dinner afterward. To help promote the events and event specials, it would be great to see local eateries displaying blue lights in their windows so the Shire can recommend that people check out the blue lights for event specials.
The chamber held its Christmas celebration at Amaroo Retreat’s newly opened restaurant and Bar, ‘The Lounge’. It was a fantastic evening under the stars and really showcased Amaroo’s exciting new venture.
Here are some snaps of some of our members letting their hair down.
I am pleased to report on various areas where we have been able to advocate for the interests of Chamber members. Members of the Executive met with senior Shire staff recently to discuss, among other things, the need for the Council to develop an economic development policy and to implement a tourism strategy, neither of which currently exist.
