YRBA partners with Southbank Directory to support our locals

Jack Hayes

The Southbank Directory, an annual business guide published by Southbank News, has this year partnered with the Yarra River Business Association (YRBA) in a bid to support the local business community.

To encourage Southbankers to support their own and give local businesses a much-needed boost amid the ongoing impacts from COVID-19, the 2022 Southbank Directory features special resident 3006-only offers from a host of YRBA member businesses.

From a complimentary beer or wine at Ludlow to 20 per cent off your next voyage on the Spirit of Melbourne, there is something for all locals to enjoy, locally.

YRBA president Jeremy Vincent and his team have worked tirelessly with this masthead over the past two years to deliver relief for local businesses and grow their connection to residents.

“Southbankers are the lifeblood of our precinct at the moment, and we have been working with Southbank News to strengthen the relationship between residents and businesses for the two years of the pandemic,” Mr Vincent said.

“Hopefully, when all this is over, there will remain a strong attachment and a better appreciation by our operators that it’s worth looking after the locals, in good times and bad.”

“We also hope that the locals are starting to see our businesses as part of their community and not just as places where tourists spend their dollars.”

The Southbank Directory will be distributed throughout Southbank and South Wharf during February •
