City Heart becomes City Pride
IT HAS already been a month since the successful City Pride campaign swept through Ipswich, reminding us all of the importance of shopping locally and having pride in our city.
In order to maintain the momentum of the campaign, the QT's quarterly magazine will be changing its name from City Heart to City Pride.
The next edition of the newly dubbed City Pride magazine will be found in the paper in November, just in time for Christmas.
Queensland Times general manager Michael Dorey said he was excited about the change and hoped it would continue to encourage pride in Ipswich.
"The newly badged City Pride magazine will ensure locals are continued to be reminded to shop locally and support local business," he said.
"Four editions of City Pride will be published annually targeting the changing seasons of the year.
"It's not just a one-off event, it's here to stay and be part of our everyday business approach."
Mayor Paul Pisasale also said the campaign should continue in order to encourage local Ipswich residents to support their neighbourhood businesses.
"We've got to have pride in our CBD and in our city," Cr Pisasale said.
"The most important thing for people right now is to help support our CBD."
Look out for the next edition of City Pride magazine in the QT on November 21.
