Events provide part of the social fabric of a community and the Bega Valley Shire is no exception with a range of events occurring across the Shire celebrating place, culture and experiences. Bega Valley Shire Council is keen to support volunteers run events that build on “Your place, Our place, Great place”.
How events fit into the Community Vision
Bega Valley Community Strategic Plan 2040
An event may generally be described as “a social gathering or activity”. Events need to be well organised and managed so they can offer safe, effective and sustainable benefits to the community.. A mismanaged event can put staff, event patrons and the general public at risk, which can expose the event organiser at best to a poor social return or at worst civil action or prosecution.
The following guidelines and templates have been provided as tools that will assist in the planning and managing an event.
Good luck and we look forward to working with you on your successful future event.
