Talk about amateurs. Col August 13, 2013 at 8:32 am And your contribution to Wynnum Redevelopment (apart from negativity and nastiness) is? Nice to know that I could be lucky enough to have you as a neighbour. Georgina August 6, 2013 at 11:31 am Yes you’re right. For gods sake, it’s a promotion to reinvigorate Wynnum and you’re asking businesses to get involved and that is your response. C’mon lift your game – we’re all involved here Geoff Riley August 6, 2013 at 11:34 am Hey this is a good thing for Wynnum. Ok so they stuffed up a bit, but the overall concept is good. Well done Wynnum. Mark August 6, 2013 at 11:39 am Maybe we need a Wynnum Fair like in all the towns back home in Cornwall ? Denis Kedron August 6, 2013 at 11:49 am A fair is a great idea but I do like the fact everybody is commenting over this promotion..good or bad … It’s at least driving interest at a time when things are tough. A great initiative. Conni August 6, 2013 at 11:53 am Ha…love all the responses Go Wynnum. Maybe Kevin Rudd could open the fair ? Mmmm, maybe not. Don’t want to ruin a good thing. admin August 7, 2013 at 12:07 am Hi Everyone The editorial team at WynnumCentral here. To address a few of the comments here… the colourband is an initiative of the Wynnum Redevelopment Taskforce, a sub-committee of the Wynnum & Districts Chamber of Commerce. Although we work together it is not an initiative of WynnumCentral. The bumper sticker is distributed free of charge – printing etc funded by supporters of the Taskforce. WynnumCentral is funded by the 21 businesses listed in ‘Members’ on the right. The enterprising shoeshop is neither a member of the Chamber nor a member of WynnumCentral (yet!). We think what the shoeshop manager has done is great – we love it, that’s why we featured the photo. But we cannot promote them over our members. However, it shouldn’t take much to work out which shoeshop it is. Check the ‘Where To Shop’ directory – there’s only one shoeshop listed. Rachel August 7, 2013 at 6:30 am Think your second paragraph is a little contradictory, you say you cannot promote the business but take a photo of it so that we can all recognise it. Do you think it would be better to feature your members shops, and may be do some positive features on this website, as many are negative or do not encourage people to visit Wynnum. More positivity please. Fiona August 7, 2013 at 2:21 pm Hi all The stickers look great and so does the shop. So it’s a positive for Wynnum all round. Jo Butterworth August 12, 2013 at 3:49 am With regards to the water tower is there a reason why the word Manly is in massive bold letters and on the other side facing Wynnum is only the colour band and the word Wynnum is nowhere insight? One would assume that if the colour band is about Wynnum that the whole slogan (Wynnum Brisbane’s Seaside) or at the very least Welcome to Wynnum should be visable????? admin August 13, 2013 at 6:38 am Hi Jo You’re right – if you didn’t know the colourband was associated with Wynnum it wouldn’t make much sense. However the colourband will soon be in a lot more places and the water tower will then make sense (we hope) in context. We just had to get it done first as the water towers are given a makeover once every 10 years + we had to do it while the repainting and refurbishing was happening.
