Be kind and support local business

Be Kind to ALL Business 

While our spirits have been lifted by the effects of eased restrictions on so many businesses across Ballarat, we wanted to encourage our community to show some love and support to those who haven’t been able to welcome customers back or that are heavily restricted.  

The gyms, fitness and dance studios.  
The cinemas, live music venues and the beauty industry.  
These and more are still under pressure. 

To help support them why not: 

  • Give them a shoutout below 

  • Buy a gift voucher 

  • Like and share their social media posts 

  • Support any modified online offerings
