Eat Local Month
GourMAY is a month long celebration of local food that invites you to [explore] [taste] [experience] the Gympie region.
On Friday I will have the pleasure of co-hosting the Annual Celebration of Volunteering with Member for Gympie, Tony Perrett MP and the Gympie Region Volunteer Centre. The morning is a small way to thank the countless volunteers that contribute to making our region the natural choice to live, work and play.
The commitment of volunteers in our region, who give their time, energy and expertise to support local community groups and events is an immeasurable asset. As Mayor, I regularly visit recreational and social clubs, schools and community groups and I know how important volunteers are to keep the cogs moving in such groups and clubs.
If you are considering volunteering in our region, please contact the Gympie Region Volunteer Centre via email email@example.com. Between now and July, the centre will be recruiting community members to be Volunteer Youth Mentors to be placed at schools and youth organisations.
Any organisation – be a Council or a community group – will not work at its best, if it keeps doing the same thing; in the same way. Being open to new ideas, new ways of doing things and being responsive to change is the way forward for an organisation and region to thrive.
Council is keen to understand the community’s views regarding improving our residents’ lives and lifestyles. We are currently undertaking a survey, the results from which will underpin the Community Development Strategy for the region. It is important that residents, community organisations and stakeholders are involved in identifying the outcomes and recommendations to be included in the strategy.
As well as the online survey we are hosting community workshops at different sites around the region. Please go to gympie.qld.gov.au to ensure you have the opportunity to provide important feedback so that we can work together to make our community a great place to live, work and play.
