Support Our Traders

Whitehorse News - March 2020

Council is encouraging our community to support our Box Hill and surrounding  traders due to recent anxiety around the impact of coronavirus.

Council is aware that traders in Box Hill have seen a downturn in trade as a result which is causing additional stress. 

However, Council welcomes and trusts the expert advice of Victoria’s Chief Medical Officer. Dr Brett Sutton has said that the situation in Victoria is significantly different from China. We have very few cases and his advice is to go about our lives as normal. He also encourages us to visit businesses and events in support of our Chinese and broader Asian community.

Box Hill is full of fantastic restaurants and cafes as well as retail stores. Council encourages all Whitehorse residents and visitors to the area to eat, shop and visit Box Hill and experience all the area has to offer. Don’t forget Council’s Harmony Day event, Global Fiesta in Box Hill Gardens on 15 March.
