Publisher’s Note Second Quarter 2020

Well there is no doubt this will be a year for us all to remember and to retell stories for many generations to come.

We are incredibly grateful for the support we have received for this edition. We are one of the very few magazines still left standing in our local community and we are watching on as day after day another business closes its doors or another person we know loses their job, or worse still, a loved one. What coronavirus has brought to our shores is unimaginable loss on so many levels. It is utterly heartbreaking to see our country go through so much pain at this time. No-one is immune. And this is the very reason we moved heaven and earth to bring you this edition. Rain, hail or COVID-19, nothing was going to stop it!

We are committed to continuing to support the business community of FNQ through this. We all need some normality, consistency and some uplifting voices in the midst of all this to keep us going. It warms our hearts to see our city leaders join us in this edition as we unite to fight back and galvanise our community spirit. We are proudly supporting the Keep it in Cairns campaign (an initiative of Cairns Regional Council and the Cairns Chamber of Commerce), but in true CityLife™ style, throwing our own flavour into the mix with a little bit of cheekiness as we hope our hashtag spreads far and wide – #DOITWITHALOCAL (We hope that puts a smile on a few faces around town – stay tuned for our social media, online and TV campaign to follow).

We might all be hurting, but we’ll #StickTogether and have a laugh along the way, as we always do. So next time you make a purchase of any kind, make sure you #DOITWITHALOCAL and keep every possible dollar we can in this great region to ensure the heart of this economy keeps ticking. We will get through this Cairns, we will get through it TOGETHER. CityLife™ is with you every step of the way!
