Silverdale Buzz

Dear Members,

I’m taking a moment to look back on the past month. Our new office has become our cozy hub of progress and positivity, and I’m thrilled to bring you up to speed on our recent developments.

Guess what? We’ve spruced up our workspace with a shiny new boardroom table – a symbol of our commitment to creating a welcoming atmosphere. Just recently, we held our very first board meeting right here, and it was a full house! A special shoutout goes to Clare from Food Therapy for keeping us fuelled with delicious coffee, adding that extra spark to our discussions.

And here’s some exciting news – we’ve welcomed a new member to our office! Carolina Lundt will be joining me on September 11th as our part-time administrator. A warm welcome to Carolina – we’re absolutely delighted to have you on board, and I can’t wait to see the wonderful contributions you’ll make.

Now, speaking of togetherness, we’ve kicked off our Security group on WhatsApp. This is our space to come together and ensure the safety of our Silverdale community. Your active involvement will make all the difference.

Switching gears a bit, we’ve been busy enhancing our security setup. Our CCTV security system is on the move to our new office, paving the way for security cameras to watch over our Industrial precinct. Safety first, always!

Remember that exciting Marketing and Promotional Campaign with GrabOne? Well, it’s gaining incredible momentum, with more businesses jumping on board for the ride. Mark your calendars for September 6th – that’s when the launch happens!

Let’s also extend a warm Silverdale welcome to Mitre 10 Mega. It’s been an absolute pleasure meeting Sam, store Manager and Welly over at Columbus. Their presence is going to add a new layer of vibrancy to our  expanding community.

And here’s a tip for coffee lovers – Highgate is your new go-to spot. With its picturesque views and serene vibe overlooking the garden centre, it’s the perfect spot for your next coffee catch-up.

Lastly, let’s mark our calendars for our upcoming Neighborhood Fusion networking, happening right here in our new office space on September 13. It’s a chance to come together, explore, and have a chat. I’m happy to hear about your businesses and how we can all support each other.

Our new maps are ready for your Business Improvement District (BID) area.
Having a visual representation can certainly be helpful for understanding the layout and structure of the area.
It’s interesting to note that your BID area is quite expansive, divided into six distinct precincts:

  1. Highgate
  2. Central
  3. Village
  4. Industrial
  5. Gateway
  6. Millwater

These precincts serve different purposes and have unique characteristics within the overall BID area.
Maps can play a crucial role in planning, development, and decision-making, helping stakeholders and community members better grasp the geography and features of each precinct.
If you have any specific questions or tasks related to these new maps or your BID area, feel free to ask!
