Diamond Creek Traders Association run like Clockwork with Clockwork
29th April, 2013
The Diamond Creek Traders Association have partnered with Clockwork Bicycle Couriers, a bicycle courier service established by Nillumbik Health. This new program is a local community initiative and the Diamond Creek Traders decided to jump on board as the program’s environmental vision compliments the Traders plan to “help our planet”.
Clockwork Bicycle Couriers is a local community initiative that commenced in September 2012, and the Diamond Creek Traders decided to form a partnership with this courier service as it compliments the Traders other environmental programs.
Clockwork Bicycle Couriers is a social enterprise that use local riders and specialised courier bikes and messenger bags to safely deliver mail, empty PO Box’s and deliver other items locally. Bicycle couriers are very flexible and can carry items of most shapes and sizes with a maximum limit of 50 kilograms in weight per load.
As part of the Diamond Creek Traders environmental initiative, the Association have purchased coupons for Diamond Creek businesses to trial and see if it will work for their business. It is hoped that businesses will see the benefit in using this service that not only helps the environment by reducing carbon footprint with motor vehicle transport but the profits from this service also go towards funding local youth services.
The courier fee is $5 which is the delivery fee within Diamond Creek. Two coupons is the fee for delivery to Greensborough, Eltham, Hurstbridge and other surrounding areas. The Clock Couriers website www.clockwork.org.au clarifies delivery zones and the full service range.
If you are a Diamond Creek business and a member of our association, and would like to receive $40 worth of courier vouchers, please contact Heidi Crundwell. Only 10 packs of vouchers are available. The Clockwork Business Manager, Daryl Brooke, will visit your business to help you make the most of this business opportunity. Please note that these vouchers can only be used for business purposes.
