On June 20, the Manly Harbour Village Chamber of Commerce held its regular Business Networking Trader Night, attended by close to 40 members and guests. This event was jointly hosted by Keith’s on Cambridge and Manly Village Pharmacy. MC and chamber vice president Steve Rickertt opened the evening by introducing our two hosts, Keith Hynes and Jessica Nguyen, and her partners, Tien and Di.

Keith’s On Cambridge is the perfect venue to enjoy deliciously fresh food, friendly service and a relaxing ambience in the heart of Manly overlooking the boat harbour. Manly Village Pharmacy has been with its current owners for over 20 years and was recently rebranded to an independent pharmacy in December 2022. In February this year, the pharmacy underwent an extensive renovation that included a state-of-the-art dispensing robot designed to improve workflow, allowing pharmacists to spend more time with patients.

We were delighted to have a mini tour through the pharmacy and witness the dispensing robot in action. Jess, from Manly Village Pharmacy, further informed us of their great service to the local community – a vaccination clinic, sleep apnoea consultations, a baby clinic, onsite compounding, and home visits for the elderly with their pharmaceutical needs. The stories of the local yachties bringing in their outdated first aid kits (“out with the old, in with the new”) resonated with all in the room, as I’m sure we all have one in our business that needs attention.

The MHV Chamber of Commerce collaborates with the local business and school community to create memorable experiences and discover hidden secrets in this beautiful Queensland tourism destination. There are so many places to eat and drink at Manly Harbour Village and cute shops to discover, but it’s also the place to find sailing and cruising adventures, gorgeous seaside parks and fabulous waterfront walks.
