Local business is the lifeblood of the Mornington Peninsula. Many have impressively adapted through the challenges of 2020. The Mornington Peninsula Shire congratulates this innovation and urges everyone – community members, organisations and businesses – to consider how we spend, recommend and utilise local services.
Open for summer, local business looks a little different. Many of our local food businesses have embraced outdoor dining, an opportunity to experience regional culinary delights and a cold beverage while soaking up the sun and fresh air in new ways. Locals and visitors can experience creative outdoor spaces with loads of atmosphere.
While you might have to drive a little slower and park a little farther away to enjoy these lively spaces across the Peninsula, it’s a small price to pay to keep our village centres thriving and support local jobs. Outdoor music programs over summer showcase local talent and get musicians back to what they love doing most: entertaining.
This summer the Shire wants to see how you support local. Share a summery snap of your favourite local businesses for your chance to win. Coffee down the street? Ordered a gift online? Helped by a local tradie? Share your photos on Instagram or Facebook and tag the business and @ourpeninsula and add #supportlocal #summerisforeveryone to your post. Their top picks will receive a prize from a local business.
