Winners Set to Escape in the Moyne Shire
Published on 15 March 2021
The latest winners in Moyne Shire Council’s Love Local competition have been announced, with each recipient receiving a local ‘Escape’ and experience package.
The Love Local initiative includes a series of shopping competitions launched by Council to help boost economic recovery and encourage participants to explore the Moyne shire.
Moyne Shire Mayor Cr Daniel Meade said that an overwhelming number of entries have been received from local shoppers and visitors to the region.
“More than 880 entries have been received in the latest round, with another 22 lucky winners receiving Escape packages, designed to highlight our great local pubs, tours and experiences across the region,” said Cr Meade.
“I would like to congratulate the winners and give a big thanks to all the local businesses who have partnered with Council in this latest campaign, including the local hotels and tourism operators who have contributed towards more than $10,000 in prizes.”
“Without the significant support from these businesses and the incredible prize pool, the competition would not have seen such success.”
Cr Meade believes the competition has been successful in supporting local businesses in their recovery from the impacts of the pandemic.
“The Port Fairy Visitor Information Centre has seen an influx of visitors through its doors, particularly over the recent Labour Day long weekend,” explained Cr Meade.
“The Love Local initiative has not only provided an opportunity for shoppers to support all our local businesses but also a chance to win hotel and experience vouchers, encouraging locals and visitors to explore the great shire of Moyne.”
The Moyne Escapes competition has now concluded with Council’s final Love Local promotion set to launch soon.
“We have received an overwhelming number of entries as a part of Council’s Love Local competition series, and it’s not over yet,” Cr Meade said.
“Promotion of the next Love Local activity will start in the coming weeks, where Council will be providing spend local vouchers at surprise locations around the shire.”
