Creating and developing the Montville Artisan Village Brand.
Since the 1970s, Montville has been renown for it's art and craft. Now our village and surrounds is home to a holistic mix of crafts people, like cheese makers, jewellery makers, chocolatiers, chefs, photographers and of course painters and potters and furniture makers.
By promoting our region as an artisan destination we are embracing our authentic identity.
A Village Wedding Expo Montville
Our Wedding Expo sub committee have delivered a number of very successful wedding expos to highlight our region as a wedding destination. The 2019 A Village Wedding Expo was held in Montville Village Hall, St Mary's Hall and the Village Green in August 2019. We look forward to being able to host the next Village Wedding Expo in the coming months.
Christmas Shopper Campaign
Each year, the Chamber coordinates a TV and radio campaign to encourage people to do their Christmas shopping locally. Businesses have been very generous in donating several thousand dollars worth of prizes that are won by several lucky shoppers just prior to Christmas. This campaign has generated much goodwill over the last few years. The 2019 Campaign was a great success with prizes from retail, accommodation and restaurants/cafes, each major draw was valued at over $1,000. The two draws were held at the Festive Tree Lighting on 7 December and the Carols on the Green on 19 December 2019.
