While we all continue to deal with the challenges thrown at us by the ongoing Stage 4 lockdown, our community is still focusing on coming out the other side with gusto. From businesses that have pivoted their professional model to maintain trade throughout the challenging period to those community members who have focused on the positives and used their downtime wisely and concentrated on personal growth, we’re all in this together.
The local community spirit has heightened as everyone appears to be focused on supporting small local businesses where they can. Many have made a ritual of trying a new restaurant via takeaway every date night, which adds interest to the monotonous days and makes a local eatery smile, while others have made an effort to inquire with local trades, experts, producers and sellers.
In keeping with this outpouring of love for locals, Mornington Peninsula Magazine – as an enormous supporter of all businesses, especially those based on the Mornington Peninsula and in Frankston – decided to ramp up the focus on lovin’ local. In order to assist in any way we can, in our August issue we launched the Local Lovin’ feature.
All of us at Mornington Peninsula Magazine have supported our community and will continue to focus on how we can help our local businesses during this second lockdown and out the other side of it. Please join us by following the hashtag #mornpenmagbizlove or by adding the hashtag to your posts so we can all support each other through these turbulent times.
