AUSTRALIA DAY

The Chamber is again distributing Australian flags to paid up members of the Lindfield Chamber of Commerce to display in your shops before our national day.

This will clearly distinguish who are the paid up members.


POLITICAL COMMENT

We had another successful raffle. The winners were shoppers from Pam’s Place and the Lindfield Pharmacy.

We had 539 entries and have increased our email database of Lindfield customers by over 350 which brings the data base to 1503 active entries with current email addresses.

We had about 75 recipients of tickets that were already on our database so clearly there are a loyal band of Lindfield shoppers.

We plan to send emails to these shoppers highlighting the specials that are available in Lindfield.

It is appropriate after thanking are participating members to mention a few negative observations.

We refused to allow a couple of shops to participate in the raffle because their donated prize was just too stingy and would have had a negative impact on the other participants.

You might ask why shoppers from Pam’s Place and Lindfield Pharmacy won. It is because their team enthusiastically handed out the free tickets as a thank you to their loyal customers.

Thus it was a matter of probabilities that one of their customers. You will go broke if you try the same thing with the lottery.

The other negative was that one or two shops never offered the tickets to their customers and just left the raffle books on their counters.

It is noticeable that the quality of the service in those shops was of the same poor quality as is the décor and stock also was below an acceptable standard.

Sadly one can predict that those businesses will not last long.

Yours sincerely

Peter Vickers, Secretary 

 


Support Lindfield

I attended the AGM of Support Lindfield. The Lindfield Chamber of Commerce donated $500 to support Lindfield.

The redevelopment of both Lindfield car parks is proceeding.

The Havillah Lane car park has now been sold by Council and will be redeveloped as home units.

However residents of Ku ring gai may have lost big money as it has been old too late to be included in the two unit developments next door.

This car park is too small for a proper development. Council has now commissioned studies on the prospective usage for a new library and community centre.

Woolworths have bought the land from which Lindfield Pharmacy operates. So things are happening but slowly.

The Woolworths spokesman at the public meeting stated that it took Woolworths 10 years for it to open their Lane Cove store.

The steam roller is moving but very slowly.

If you want to discuss how these developments will affect your business then come to our next meeting.

Seminars 2013 with the Ku-ring-gai Chamber of Commerce

COST $50 OR FREE FOR KCOC & LCOC MEMBERS

Our seminars not only provide our community with updates on current issues but also provide a framework for networking amongst likeminded professionals who may be potential clients, sources of referrals or knowledge and inspiration.

Mum and Dad are still living in their home but now need carers to assist them in their day to day lives.

One of the jobs you can’t get the carers to do is help manage the money and investments.

At our seminar we will show you some ways that this can be done even, if the parents do not like to hand over control to their children, the children are overseas, there is sibling rivalry which started when they were 5 years old, or the children are just too busy with their families or there are no children available.

Peter Vickers & Associates have developed a unique system to take this stress away from the family but still keep everything transparent and readily accessible.

Come and hear about the mess that some families have gotten themselves into and how we can help the family enjoy their time together
