Australia Day village grants to fuel community events

Gunnedah Shire Council

Grants of up to $500 to kick-start 2023 Australia Day activities in Gunnedah Shire villages are now available.

Progress associations, hall committees and community groups within Gunnedah Shire’s villages are invited to apply to Council to help fund their community celebrations.

Gunnedah Shire Deputy Mayor and Australia Day Working Group Chair Cr Rob Hooke said it was a great opportunity for villages to create and host family-friendly events and activities.

“Our Shire villages are active communities and we want to give them an opportunity to celebrate Australia Day in ways that are unique to their towns,” he said.

“Ideas for activities might include a classic Australian barbeque or picnic in the park, a sports event or live music.

“Australia Day is something our communities are passionate about and we’d love to see more great events taking place in January in Breeza, Carroll, Curlewis, Emerald Hill, Kelvin, Mullaley, Piallaway and Tambar Springs.
