Augusta has enjoyed one of the best summers we have seen in a while, mostly being spared the south-easterlies! Visitors and locals have been making the most of our environs, natural and otherwise!

Visitor numbers have remained high for longer into January and businesses enjoying the flow-on, most reporting increased trade. It has been great to see the innovative things people are doing to attract trade, one being the Christmas window displays!

The ACCI Christmas window display and Buy Local campaign were a great success and we would like to thank all businesses for their involvement.

We would especially like to thank Bernice Gillam from Augusta Xtreme Outdoors for her efforts in organising both events, as well as the businesses who generously donated a great array of gifts and vouchers. The prize bags were won, with great joy, by three locals and one visitor to Augusta!

The inaugural ACCI community Carols by Candlelight event was a great success despite the threat of rain! The Christmas Tree set a beautiful tone for this family event.

Thanks to 2oceansFM, Augusta Singers, Sarah MacPherson, Karridale Ukulele Players, Augusta Primary School, Isobel Lemon and Justin Haddow, Deb ‘Spoons’ Perry, Sue and Caroline Juniper, Augusta CRC, Jon Godden, Shire of Augusta Margaret River, Lightning Ridge Electrical and Leeuwin Lions for their involvement with the event.

We look forward to Carols by Candlelight 2019.
