  • Celebrating Community 2021

    Twenty-three local community groups and sporting clubs joined together to host the Connecting Community Expo from 9.30 to 11.30am. The event was very successful in bringing community groups together to raise awareness, facilitate partnerships and provide networking opportunities. Around 70 volunteers were involved, representing their organisation/group and providing fun and interactive activities for the community. With the end of the Expo at 11.30am, volunteers remained to take part in the Celebrating Community Awards which recognised the contribution of 27 volunteers and volunteer groups, for their significant and valued contribution to the community. Family and friends were present to help the nominees celebrate, as well as Shire Councillors and local Members of Parliament. Certificates of Appreciation signed by the CEO of Volunteering Australia were sent to all stallholders who participated on the day. Celebrating Community Award recipients were given certificates and a gift from the Shire and a certificate from the Department of Communities to recognise their contribution.

    The list of recipients can be found on the Shire's website.

    Special thanks to the Wheatbelt Volunteer Hub for sharing their knowledge with the participants. Attendees received lots of goodies and tips on how to find local volunteering opportunities.

    THANK YOU TO ALL VOLUNTEERS IN THE SHIRE

    Volunteers make our communities stronger, especially during times of need, crisis or isolation. When we help others in our community or give our time to a cause we value, we also give back to ourselves.

  • Volunteers needed!

    We are seeking volunteers with an interest and skills in information technology to support community members who need help using electronic devices such as mobiles, tablets and laptops.

    We also require the help of volunteers who will be supported by the Shire to connect and provide information to community members. Tasks may include ringing to check in and simply ask “are you okay” or spending about an hour distributing important information through letter box drops.

    To find out more and to register your interest, please contact the Shire on 9290 6666 or email ccbo@mundaring.wa.gov.au.
