Our community at its best
The fallout of COVID-19 has certainly had a far reaching impact on our front line community organisations - those who continue to find ways amongst COVID-19 restrictions, increased community demands and restricted volunteer support, to best support their communities.
In the true spirit of community supporting community when it's needed most, the Bass Coast Community Foundation has joined the global Giving Tuesday campaign - a campaign that actively calls upon community members and local businesses to acknowledge, celebrate and thank local not-for-profit organisations for the outstanding work that they do.
On 1 December 2020, the Bass Coast Community Foundation encourages all community members, and local businesses alike, to find their way to say thank you to our not-for-profits for a job well done. Look for your way to say thank you while supporting our community to reconnect, re-energise and reignite!
The Spoonville concept originated in Winnerish, England at the beginning of 2020. It was one lady's creative way of cheering up her community during COVID.
Since that time Spoonvilles have been popping up all over the world - to the delight of children and adults alike!
And delightfully, the creative community spirit of Spoonville has found it's home here in Bass Coast.
If you travel past the Corinella and District Community Centre, Inverloch Primary School or a resident on the foreshore of Smith's Beach, you will see a diverse community of Spoony's hanging out together, enjoying each others company and giving us a visual reminder of the strength of a community - continuing to connect despite the challenges!
What better way to engage our children and community than encouraging messages of positivity and kindness through our natural environment.
Hidden amongst the foreshores of our coastline, our walking trails, throughout our neighbourhoods and well....basically anywhere, you may find a little rock treasure with positive and uplifting messages.
A wonderful initiative brought to our community by the community. For further information connect through the Bass Coast Happy Rocks facebook page
