FROM THE EDITOR
It feels a little late in the game already to be “welcoming” you to 2018, but here goes.
Welcome to 2018!
You may notice some slight changes—hopefully improvements—in the look and layout of the Banksia Bulletin, and the Passion Sheet. Rest assured they’re not just changes for the sake of change, so please feel free to let us know what you think of them.
Our advertisers—who afford us the ability to produce the Banksia Bulletin every month—are spread throughout the publication but also listed in a contents-style list in the early pages. Our aim is to better spread the word about these great local businesses, and assist you—our dear readers—to find a service more easily.
We’re also throwing an enhanced focus on locally written content, in the form of articles, reports, columns, confessions and stories. We want to get the creative juices flowing in you all and encourage more people every month to put pen to paper and share their thoughts or expertise. We have a (mostly) great team of typists and editors here at the CRC, so don’t let a fear of Microsoft Word put you off, and the excuse “I can’t spell good” won’t fly around here. We got you.
If you’re a woman who is involved in any sort of money-generating business I seriously encourage you to read up on our upcoming event Women’s Business, get keen then grab a mate (not essential) and a ticket and join us on Thursday 8th March. As we go to print there are only about 20 seats remaining. Hop to it!
See ya round.
