Strong trade at Ettalong
The Ettalong Beach Business Group has reported a strong Easter Holiday trading season, despite inclement weather conditions over the long weekend.
"I did a quick survey of some of the businesses after the weekend and am delighted to report some strong business results," said business group president Ms Jeanette Polley.
"My understanding is that all of the Ettalong Beach motels and the Mantra Resort were at 100 per cent occupancy and that the restaurants and cafes did a roaring trade," she said.
"This is extremely encouraging after a very strong Christmas holiday period for businesses.
"The Ettalong Beach Business Group continues to attract new members who have started up their businesses in the past year.
"What we find even more pleasing is that Ettalong Beach continues to preserve the village atmosphere.
"This is something that we are particularly proud of and will work hard to nurture," she said.
"Obviously, things can always be better.
"Our executive committee takes a very inclusive approach and we are always looking for improvements and we are working closely with Gosford Council to implement these improvements.
"Good examples of this are the $2 million committed by federal Member for Robinson Ms Deborah O'Neill for the Ettalong Beach Foreshore and also the BID grants that we have received from Council," said Ms Polley.
