2008-05-27 00:00

Doug Cryer from DMC Electrical, a local small business, is pictured doing the electrical installation at the Nashua Art in the Park site. Organisers, Pietermaritzburg Tourism, welcomed Cryer on board as a sponsor this year.

Director of Pietermaritzburg Tourism, Melanie Veness, explained that the electrical installation would have cost the event thousands of rand:

"We thank Doug for his very generous sponsorship. Doug is a small business owner who wants to give back to the community that supports him and we … encourage other small businesses to become involved in events. Nashua Art in the Park is a truly Pietermaritzburg event, with naming rights sponsors being Nashua Pietermaritzburg and enjoying sponsorship from the provincial department of Arts, Culture and Tourism and now DMC Electrical. In addition we enjoy much support from Msunduzi Municipality and from the community who collect leaves for the event."
