The Christmas Banners Are Up

Description

The Christmas banners in the main streets of Gympie were funded under the Flexible Funding Program.  They serve as both a seasonal memorial and as an innovative alternative to a single anniversary event. 

In acknowledging the role that important community and emergency services play, the banners serve as a timely reminder that support has been made available from a broad cross section of the community, as well as being a gentle reminder that our local communities can rely upon the ongoing support of those services if and when needed in the future.  

Due to the popularity of the banners and in response to requests received, banners will also be displayed in Goomeri, Kilkivan and Woologa, as all these areas continue their recovery.

While the Gympie Chamber of Commerce and LDMG were instrumental in driving this initiative forward, it has been met with a great deal of appreciation and enthusiasm by the Services who have been invited to be involved.  Many have commended the Council for approving this innovative and meaningful initiative. 

 The Banner project fits nicely with Gympie’s communications and engagement strategy which is currently being finalised.   A follow up media release will further explain the significance of the Christmas Banners.
