Great food and a bunch of busy business people came together on Wednesday to celebrate Christmas in July at the Harvey Visitor Centre.

Brought together by the Brunswick and Harvey Community Resource centres and Harvey Visitor Centre, the business sundowner provided an opportunity for business owners and like-minded people to connect socially.

Throughout the night guests took part in games such as Scattergories where they were challenged to discuss what they thought the Harvey region had to offer.

Organisers were pleased to receive positive feedback from guests.

Harvey Visitor Centre manager Gemma Longford said it was important to receive feedback from businesses within the region.

“An important role of the Harvey Visitor Centre is to not only ensure our tourists to the area are well catered for, but also that our local business community benefits from our increasing number of tourists to the area each year,” Ms Longford said.

“Even businesses including those such as pharmacies and supermarkets that do not typically identify themselves as tourism-based, all provide services to the tourism sector.

“The Harvey Visitor Centre has objectives in place to stimulate spending in all facets of the business community as well as attract and engage visitors to our communities.

“We are thrilled to have such fantastic links to our local community resource centres and are passionate about creating a supportive and positive culture in the communities we are all part of.
