Our aim is to support, generate & facilitate the growth of a strong business sector. To retain and create employment, regenerate pride & a positive profile within the community.

We are strong advocates for supporting local businesses. Live Local. Love Local. Buy Local.  If every person in our region spent an extra $5 a week in the local community instead of online or elsewhere, it would add an extra 24 million dollars per year to our local economy*
Imagine the positive impact! That could create 218  jobs! Pay for new facilities! Increase new development…and make our local area a better place to live.
