A Community Forum was organised by the Nightcliff Community Bank Branch to discuss funding community projects in the Darwin area to determine needs and priorities.
The forum was opened by the Chairman of Nightcliff Community Bank Board, Murray Fuller, who welcomed participants and explained the purpose of the meeting.
To summarise his address;
The forum was invited to write out ideas and collate them into general groupings such as health, sport, art and aged care.
The proposals were then explained to the forum by volunteers and then displayed on a noticeboard for all to read.
Each participant was given four votes (yellow stickers) and invited to vote on the proposals by adding a yellow sticker to the ones they supported.
This community involvement will help the Board of Nightcliff Community Bank decide how to use funds as they become available.
It may also help provide a more co-ordinated community involvement by many of the clubs, groups and charities operating in the area.
Of course not everyone was able to make it to the evening forum, and this will be an ongoing and evolving discussion.
If you would like to be part of this process, please consider using the form below to participate.
If you have a proposal for a community project in Darwin add it to this forum to help generate support and feedback. You might discover other people have similar ideas, or have projects with areas of overlap which you could benefit from.
All reasonable projects are welcome from local groups, clubs or charities. Please remember this is a public forum and no confidential information should be provided.
This is not a formal funding application, these must be made independently to Nightcliff Community Bank®, relevant organisations or government departments.
