Reconnecti­ng communitie­s


A Hindmarsh Shire Council project to support small events during the COVID-19 pandemic has received a $30,000 boost from a State Government Regional Recovery Fund.

The council will use the money to support community groups and event organisers to reconvene or help establish new events as part of its ‘Reconnecti­ng Communitie­s through Small Events in Hindmarsh Shire’ project.

Mayor Ron Ismay said the government support would provide an increased level of confidence for residents that community events and activities could still go ahead with COVID-SAFE measures in place.

“Council is extremely pleased and thankful of the Victorian government to receive this support,” he said.

“It will provide residents across the shire with an opportunit­y to once again connect by way of social interactio­n through a series of small community-based events in Dimboola, Jeparit, Nhill and Rainbow that will also provide socio-economic growth.”
