Message from the Mayor

November is Small Business month!

It was great to see the return of Paddo Night Out last Thursday. There were so many people out and about supporting our local businesses and retailers. Congratulations to all the small businesses who participated and to Visit Paddington.

Our small businesses are an important part of any community. I make a regular commitment in my event speeches to encourage residents and visitors to shop local.

As we head towards the end of the year I want to wish you and those who support you all the best. I hope the new year brings you personal happiness, good health and great success for your business.

Here are some great events and resources we wanted to share with you.

Councillor Susan Wynne
Mayor of Woollahra
