New community website to help residents find-join-connect with local events, clubs, groups and organisations
A new community website, www.connectgreaterbendigo.com.au is now available to help residents find, join and connect with local events, clubs, groups and organisations.
Connect Greater Bendigo is easy to browse and search, features simple and clear information and offers a directory of clubs and groups and a full calendar of community events.
City of Greater Bendigo Mayor Cr Jennifer Alden said it’s the perfect site for people who are looking for local events to attend or who want to join a local club or group.
“It’s also a great platform for local organisations who are looking to promote their club or group to potential new members,” said Cr Alden.
“The new Connect Greater Bendigo website is a first for Greater Bendigo and although it has been developed by the City, it is very much a community website.
“In the past there wasn’t one single community directory that consolidated information about community groups, organisations, events and activities in Greater Bendigo to help people Find-Join-Connect!
“Instead, people had to search the internet, social media, or go direct to local websites to find the information they wanted. This was not only time-consuming and frustrating but also challenging for those new to the region.
“Because it’s so easy to browse and search and features simple and clear information Connect Greater Bendigo will make finding a local sport and recreation club, community group, health care service or education provider and more a breeze.
“Given the COVID-19 lockdowns the need to reconnect with community has never been stronger.
“We all know that connected communities are strong communities and through Connect Greater Bendigo local groups, organisations and clubs can raise their profile in the community, promote their events and attract new members.
“The new website will not only enhance the strong connections that already exist within our community but will also help build new ones.”
