Get social with the local community

THE Cassowary Coast region has a diverse range of community groups which provide residents a sense of connection, security, support, social connectedness and can offer a sense of overall happiness and purpose.

The social and community culture of our region thrives from the connection of like-minded residents who meet for sports, crafts, activities, social or cultural meets, community, or volunteer based groups.

Cassowary Coast Regional Council Councillor Trudy Tschui who holds the portfolio of Community and Culture personally knows the benefits of contributing to the community through volunteering, sports, or social groups and wants to connect interested residents with groups seeking new members.

Cr Tschui will be holding a market stall at the Mission Beach Monster Markets on Sunday 26 September and will share the information about regional groups who drop their information into the Mission Beach or Tully Libraries in the lead up to the market stall.

“I encourage all groups seeking new members drop in their flyers and signup sheets. The stall at the Mission Beach Monster Markets will act as a hub for interested residents to find their match with like-minded groups who suits their interests.

“Signup sheets and flyers will be handed out and any details I receive from interested marketgoers will be passed onto the groups so they can connect after the stall.

“I encourage groups across the region to get involved. If feedback from the Mission Beach Monster Market Stall proves positive, I’d love to extend the exposure to other community services and have different markets and Library drop off locations in the future.

“Community groups are the perfect way to ‘get social, local’. It’s an easy way to connect with your region, find new skills, contribute to the growth of the region, share your passions and create a supportive network outside of work or family,” said Councillor Tschui.

Representatives from community groups are welcome to drop the information, flyers, and signup sheets into the Mission Beach or Tully Libraries during opening hours prior to Sunday 26

If any community group representatives have any questions regarding this they can contact Councillor Trudy Tschui via phone 0457145983 or email
