Wollondilly Shire Council urges locals to ‘Love the Dilly’ and support local businesses

Posted on: 20.05.2020

In time for the launch of its new ‘Love the Dilly’ Campaign on 1 June, Wollondilly Shire Council is encouraging residents to shop locally wherever possible to help Wollondilly businesses get back on their feet.

Mayor Matthew Deeth said, “The Wollondilly business community is the foundation of our local economy and we recognise the importance of the businesses who provide jobs, goods and services to our community.”

“We have all had to deal with significant challenges in recent times including drought, bushfires, floods and now the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“By shopping locally either in store, online, by purchasing a gift voucher or hiring a local trade for that new project, home renovation or repair job, residents can help our Wollondilly businesses survive and thrive and support the many local families who own them,” he said.

Wollondilly’s towns and villages offer an array of shops to browse through, selling everything from homewares, gifts, produce and essential items. The Shire is also home to many quality local trades and professional services.

Businesses are being encouraged to participate in the campaign by using the toolkit available from Council including ‘Love the Dilly’ logos which can be downloaded for use on your website, Facebook or Instagram pages and sticker which can displayed loud and proud on your shopfront, car, ute or truck. The toolkit can be downloaded at bit.ly/lovethedillyassets

Council is committed to supporting small business and recently endorsed the first stage of a Business Support Package to help ease the economic impacts of COVID-19.

Council has taken unprecedented measures to keep the community safe through this crisis and looks forward to the gradual easing of restrictions, allowing everyone to enjoy the wonderful attractions that Wollondilly has to offer in the near future.
