Our priorities

(page work in progress)

Local rubbish dumping  & littering

 

We live in a beautiful location and we want to keep it that way for both civic pride and for visitors.

 

 

Annual Art Show Exhibition

Held over a week, this is for regional artists who want to share their skills. All work is for sale to the public.

There's also a separate-but-connected children's display, organised through regional schools.

Wheels in the Park

 

2019 will be the sixth Wheels event, which brings hundreds of extra visitors to Geeveston, some for the first time. (And hopefully not their last)

 

Wheels is organised annually by your Geeveston Progress Association to: 

  • provide a fabulous day out for local families,

  • boost our town's visibility with state-wide and regional exposure by advertising and promotion in the months and weeks leading up to the event, 

  • boost our town's economy from extra spending by visitors, both on the day itself, and when they come back because they remember (or discover) what a charming little town we are,

  • provide an opportunity for fund raising by local schools and groups who keep all the proceeds of the the food and drinks they sell, 

  • support the Geeveston Fire Brigade with a donation for their assistance with traffic management and parking, 

  • raise funds for Geeveston Cares and other community groups who offer local support, and

  • any profit goes towards township projects.

 

So there's no pressure to have a successful day, right?

 

The organising sub-committee can't do this all on their own, and rely on community for three major resources:

  1. financial support by way of sponsorship,

  2. help with promoting the event to your customers and members, and

  3. volunteers to help out on the day.
