Dear Members,

During this joyful time of the year, I would like to wish you and your family all the best, as well as success in all your business endeavours for the coming year. Each individual should take this opportunity to revisit our local businesses, giving them your sincere support and best wishes.

In 2017, if every one of us made a resolution to buy more locally, it would provide jobs for our region, contribute to the well-being of our business community and health of our economy.
