Brighten up: Upbeat news from around the region

BUNDABERG is full of positive news and that is something to celebrate, which is why we are bringing you a weekly dose of good news stories from around the region.

Here are just some of the things that happened this week that made us smile.

• Wedding bells ring for Bundy

Tying the knot in Bundaberg just got a whole lot easier with an exciting new directory that showcases all local vendors for the big day.

When bride-to-be Alexa Field starting planning her upcoming wedding, she was overwhelmed by the range of quality choices available in the region.

Through assisting her parents with their own wedding venue, Ms Field also witnessed first-hand how challenging the process could be and decided to create a free wedding directory called Married in Bundy.

• Business is all fun and games

Wanting to provide youths and young adults with a place to have fun in Bundaberg was all the inspiration Craig Driver needed to set up Grim Gaming and Hobbies.

It was so successful he has moved from his Woondooma St business and gaming space to a bigger building on Electra St and is offering a place for people to gather and have fun in a social environment.

His sweet sidekick dog Lexi loves greeting people who come to the shop.
