  • programs, activities and initiatives delivered by community groups;
  • support community development initiatives;
  • increase the range of events, activities and services in the Shire;
  • encourage the development of excellence and leadership in recreational, sporting, economic, tourism and cultural pursuits; and
  • encourage the promotion of the Shire’s positive attributes.
