This is where we place a spotlight on a business - introducing that business, what it provides for our community and - importantly - the people behind that business - being the local manager or the owner
This section of CONNECT is almost the most important of all.
CONNECT is like a living body – comprising two important key elements.
First, there is the skeleton, the framework, and it describes what our community is all about. It details what we have and what we do. That is, what we have in the way of resources, facilities and services. It also details what we do, by the activities we enjoy within the myriad of different interest groups and pursuits.
The other sections of CONNECT detail these things.
The second key element of CONNECT is likened to the life blood of a living body, or a thriving community. Here we tell each other what we have done AND what others outside our community have been doing. Our Magazine section is that part of CONNECT for sharing between communities our News and Views.
