Christmas Decorations

One of the local papers had an article stating that Stonnington had spent more than a number of other councils on Christmas decorations.   Well, at least they seem to be getting something for their money, as the decorations are certainly noticeable.    Apparently retailers think the "Christmas feel" is good for business and, from my perspective, I think that some effort is this direction is worthwhile.

 If the Council were inclined to save money, I think there are a lot of other areas where this could - and perhaps should - occur!

Many shops have this decoration, presumably from the Council

  1. Boroondara Council has been labelled a Scrooge after it was revealed it will spend no money on decorations this year.

    But Maling Rd Shopping Association president Vanessa Cunliffe said in the current economic climate, councils had to make tough decisions.

    "There's always a lot of blame in the community, but I feel traders need to take responsibility for their own areas," she said.
