Mansfield’s “Buy Local” campaign gains momentum on Friday 6 December with the Christmas Twilight Market on High Street shining bright, festive lights on community value and community support to shop locally and buy locally.
A collaboration between Mansfield Shire Council, Mansfield Producers Group, traders from across the shire, High Street businesses and the Mansfield District Business Association and the Mansfield Courier is ringing the festive season’s bells together with 5pm to 8pm Friday night shopping and a community entertainment extravaganza.

The bringing together of community positively brings to light the passion and the spirit we have in supporting local businesses.
