Butchery dresses up to support annual festival

WHEN Peter Wright came home from work one evening, he casually suggested to his wife Michelle that they decorate Carey Bros Butchery, of which he manages, in theme for Jumpers and Jazz in July.

Next thing, there was a cow named Carmel sporting booties, a scarf and a beanie and a sheep named Shazzy - both of the ornamental kind - ready to jump onto the counters of Carey Bros shops around Warwick.

Mrs Wright said it was important small businesses got involved with the winter festival.

"It's especially important for the smaller businesses because they are the ones who put money back into the local economy," Mrs Wright said.

Other businesses are urged to dress up their shop windows, theme their menus and host events in the Jumpers and Jazz theme.
