It’s wonderful to see crowds back at the footy as Geelong kicks off its first home game of the season tonight against the Brisbane Lions at GMHBA stadium. And even better that crowd capacity will be at 75%, as Victoria reaches the milestone of no community cases in 4 weeks. So there is plenty of opportunity for fans to get along and cheer on the Cats at home for the first time in over 18 months.
There’s a real buzz around the town as restrictions ease and we start to see a return to relative normality. Offices will be back at 100% capacity next week which should give a much needed boost to the CBD. A few months ago Little Malop Street was almost deserted in the height of summer but as the workers are returning, the cafes, restaurants and outdoor dining spaces which are such a drawcard along that vibrant strip are filling up again finally.
Easter is just around the corner too, coinciding with the finish of Term 1 of school at the end of next week. Where has this year gone?
Have a great weekend, I hope your team wins!
Until next week,
Nick Lord (Director)
