$2,000 Winner for Carlton Gore Road!

For Immediate Release

$2,000 Winner for Carlton Gore Road!
September 5, 2014

When entering the Carlton Gore Road Shopping Spree competition online, Sarah Adams did not expect that with only a few easy clicks she would then be announced as the lucky winner of $2000 to spend in the Carlton Gore Road area.

This competition was in celebration of the new and improved Carlton Gore Road precinct, and after a fantastic Market Day full of live music, face painting, pony rides and live art performances it couldn’t have been a better way to wrap up the festivities.

“The event has told the world that Carlton Gore Road is open for business” says Newmarket Business Association CEO, Mark Knoff-Thomas, he added “we couldn’t have hoped for a better turnout on the day or better weather, and we believe the Market Day was needed to bring people back here - after many months of road works.”
