A Boost for the Manly Visitor Economy is on the way

A new Manly Tourism and Events Co-operative, ‘Experience Manly’ has launched to help Manly’s struggling visitor economy rebound post Covid-19.

Member for Manly, James Griffin said the ‘Experience Manly’ co-operative, formed out of the Manly Tourism and Economic Recovery Taskforce, was a practical initiative that would have lasting benefits for the Manly visitor economy and local businesses. The launch coincides with the ‘Feel New’ NSW Government tourism campaign.

Appreciating our Teachers

Member for Manly, James Griffin is encouraging the community to let local teachers know how important they are, and acknowledge the significant impact they have on the lives of our young people.

Mr Griffin said the easing of COVID-19 restrictions and the re-opening of schools provides an ideal opportunity for children, students, families and the entire school community to recognise teachers who have made a difference in their lives.

“Teachers across the Manly electorate have played a pivotal role in the lives of many young people during a difficult year, and we should acknowledge their efforts,” Mr Griffin said.
