Community Board hard at work in background
In this capacity, we have a set criteria to meet prior to funds being granted and a limited budget within which we operate.
The two major public Community events our Board supports annually are the Te Awamutu Christmas Parade and the Te Awamutu Combined Churches Light Party held in Selwyn Park.
These two events are granted a substantial part of our annual allocation and in fact place the Board in the position of being the major single cash sponsor of both events.
In the past, this critical support has not been acknowledged and has been lost in the marketing and publicity of both of these community events.
Much of what the Board members do for the community is done away from the public eye, either in after hours meetings attending various club AGMs or working with smaller groups to steer them in the right direction when a project requires support.
Most volunteer organisations within our community have benefited from cash grants provided by the Community Board at some stage.
Our Board always appreciates acknowledgement for its efforts and contribution to our community.
