Cessnock City Council’s Economic Development Team have another fantastic prize to give away this December as part of their ongoing ‘Support Local’ social media campaign.

Throughout December, residents can go in the draw to win a $500 gift card by posting in 25 words or less what their favourite activity is to do in the Greater Cessnock area. Whether it’s visiting an amazing attraction, restaurant, park, pool, playground, or sports field, Council wants to hear from you.

Residents can enter as many times as they like on Facebook and Instagram between 1 – 31 December 2021, with the randomly selected winner to be notified on 4 January 2022.

To ensure the team can see your entry, make sure you set your profile and post to public and use the campaign hashtag #SupportLocalCessnock.

The ‘Support Local’ campaign is all about encouraging residents to support local business. With 10 competitions planned via social media over several months, a total of $5,000 in prizes will be given away, including gift cards, restaurant and accommodation vouchers, hampers and more.

Cessnock City’s General Manager, Lotta Jackson said the ‘Support Local’ campaign is designed to keep our local economy strong through the promotion of local business and tourism.

“Spending season is upon us and it’s important we encourage our community to support local, buy local and visit local, especially following the hit we’ve taken as a result of COVID-19.

“We’re looking forward to hearing from people throughout December and finding out what their favourite activities and destinations are in the Greater Cessnock area,” she added.
