With businesses feeling the pinch, we’re being encouraged to support local. Back a Local is an initiative of Moreton Bay Regional Council and was launched in mid-February aimed at encouraging locals to eat, drink, shop, play, spend and back a local business.
With the recent wave of Omicron spreading throughout the region, a number of businesses have been impacted by COVID-related staff shortages, supply chain issues and loss of visitation.
“With 29,000 businesses in the Moreton Bay Region supporting close to 140,000 jobs, I ask the community to work together as part of ‘Team Moreton Bay’, to help shape our region into Queensland’s best place to live, work and play,” Mayor Peter Flannery said.
To help residents show their support, a range of free resources are available on the Moreton Bay Regional Council website, including a printable Back a Local poster.
The community can help spread the message by sharing social media assets on their personal and business Facebook and Instagram pages. For more information about Locals Backing Locals, visit www.moretonbay.gov.au/back-a-local.
