Call to support local venues offering takeaway

Posted: 7am 30 Mar 2021

As greater Brisbane and the Moreton Bay Region settle into a three-day lockdown, hospitality venues offering takeaway are calling for your support.

Show your support

Moreton Bay Region Mayor Peter Flannery says lockdown is a time for locals to stay local, just as we did in January.

“This March lockdown is a painful déjà vu for businesses, after the three-day lockdown in January and everything they overcame in 2020,” Mayor Flannery says.

“This lockdown is necessary in the interests of community health, but it couldn’t come at a worse time for businesses heading into Easter.

“That means, as locals, we need to eat locally and shop locally to help our businesses get by - just remember to wear a mask whenever you’re leaving the house.

“This is acutely critical for businesses who are stocked up for Festival of Sails, now that events are again on hold. Businesses bring life and activity into our communities, now is a time we can support them by buying local this Easter.”

Crucial time for venues

Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) Chairman Shane Newcombe is calling on everyone in the region to support an industry that’s done it particularly tough.

“These businesses are owned by our friends and neighbours and now is the time to support them in any way you can,” Mr Newcombe says.

“Reach out, ask if they’re offering takeaway and do what you can to support them. It will make a big difference.”
