Recognising our volunteers

For this week’s National Volunteer Week, we recognised our volunteers from a range of Council services including Meals on Wheels, Social Support and Planned Activity groups, Pound, Central Goldfields Art Gallery, Maryborough Regional Library, L2P, Community Buses and Central Goldfields Visitor Information Centre with a special afternoon tea on Tuesday at the Art Gallery.

We also recognised some of our younger FReeZA volunteers who helped out at the Maryborough Lions Club Market by running their own stall and selling bath bombs, tie dye clothing, candles, hair scrunchies, face painting and fun hair spray.

Thank you to all of our volunteers who give up their time to deliver valuable services to the community!


Go Goldfields and National Families Week

Go Goldfields took part in National Families Week this week. Go Goldfields celebrated natures’ playground and the benefits of spending time in the great outdoors.

Go Goldfields collaborated with families in our community to co-design messages that celebrate and remind families of the many positive reasons to make time to enjoy the outdoors and shared them via social media on the Go Goldfields Facebook page.

It was exciting to share these beautiful messages reflecting the core theme of this year’s National Families Week, ‘stronger families, stronger communities’, and what that means to members of our community.

To view all seven messages, and to stay up to date with the latest Go Goldfields news, visit:
