Meet Sarah English, Newly appointed Business Development Officer at the Scone Chamber of Commerce - Supporting Chamber Members and the Local Business Community.

While things are a little quiet at the moment and our plans for networking events and training are somewhat uncertain - we believe it's the perfect time to think about how we can all support each other and our local community.

One of the best ways we can all support our local businesses and local jobs is by thinking locally when we can.


Through buying from your local small businesses, you are supporting local jobs in your community and helping them stay in business. This is even more important now than ever.

We are teaming up with the Go Local First organisation whose campaign in 2020 was hugely successful in spreading the buy local message. And it's because of everyone's support that Go Local First is back for another year. It's easy to get involved.

1. Go to our Facebook page /sconechamber and share our Go Local First posts on your personal or business pages - making sure to use the hashtag #golocalfirst when posting.

2. Head to Go Local First Facebook Page /localfirstAU , give them a like/follow, and feel free to share their ongoing content.

3. Download and print the free Go Local First material from golocalfirst.com.au to help raise awareness of the campaign.

We will be posting regularly on social media about Go Local First and we encourage you all to do the same.
