DUMBLEYUNG MINI MALL – OPENING SOON
You may have noticed the fit out for the Dumbleyung Mini Mall has commenced with intended opening in November. We have received some exciting interest however this space allows for more. You can enquire to be a Shopkeeper for 6hrs per week or to simply display your items in the Mini Mall with sales managed by the Shopkeepers. It’s simple, affordable and a space to have a go! If you would like more information please call Nicole at the shire – even if it’s just the curiosity getting the better of you!
How will the Dumbleyung Mini Mall Operate?
We have two tiers of how you can be involved with the physical Mini Mall.
1. Mini Mall Shopkeeper (Minimum 6hrs shopkeeping per week)
2. Mini Mall Brand Display (No shopkeeping)
Both require an application/hire form to be completed at the shire office for approval.
What is the difference between a “Shopkeeper” and a “Brand Display”?
Brand Displays will pay a weekly hire fee of $20 for their items to be displayed and sold in the Mini Mall. This is for those who don’t have the time to shopkeep.
Shopkeepers will share the weekly hire fee of $50 for the space on a more permanent basis and manage displays, customer service and sales.

Remembrance Day is a nationally recognised day of commemoration held each year on the 11th November, when we pause for one minute of silence at 11am to remember the service and sacrifice of women and men who gave their lives in wars, conflicts and peace operations. This year marks the centenary of the Armistice, when the First World War came to an end. In the lead up to Remembrance Day we will share some stories from the publication “Candour” - stories in the words of those who served 1914-18.
France 24 June 1916 Memoir of Lieutenant George Courtney Benson
My dear nephews and nieces and peoples, I can’t write you separate letters ‘cos I’m in the war again …
And Mavis … when I last saw you, you were a tiny thing with silvery hair … now you’re big enough to write letters to me – and all the spellin’s right too and the writin’s so good – why it just strikes me that if you’re growing up so – I must be growing old. When I come back from this war it looks as tho’ I’ll be coming back like this: See illustrationhttps://www.facebook.com/dumbleyungshire/photos/a.354413364734542/1082852651890606/?type=3&theater
