What’s your opinion on the COVID vax?

Even though the Federal government refuses to take responsibility for the slow rollout of COIVID vaccines across the country you can still have your say on its rollout locally.

On Thursday September 13, the Byron Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with The Sticky Wicket Bar and Enova Energy for its monthly networking event from 5pm till 7pm.

Organisers say this month’s focus will be on innovation in business and the need to continually evolve ‘to remain relevant to the market in an ever-changing local business landscape.’ 

Guest speakers include Enova Energy chairperson Alison Crook and The Sticky Wicket’s owner Sue Charles. Sue says ‘From restaurants, nightclubs and sports bars, to reductions in trading hours, changes to licensing and surviving the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), this venue has seen it all.’
