We got the Roleystone Community's Big Ideas and we now have a plan
Written by Chris Johnston

The Roleystone-Karragullen Community Bank® Branch has just celebrated its third birthday.  As we approach maturity we are moving towards fulfilling our charter of providing funds to support and grow our community.  We are proud to say that we have met individual sponsorship requests for support in the last three years across a wide spectrum of interest groups. These have included the Arts, Sport, Seniors, Men’s health, Women’s health, education, youth, the environment, other service providers and young children.  

We held the community forum, you helped us establish and rank the ideas that the community see as its current needs and priorities. 

The ideas and the top priorities have been documented in our Community Plan which has now been compiled and was launched at our AGM attended by over 40 shareholders and community members on the 10th November. The launch presentation by forum convener Chris Johnston can be viewed by opening this file. PDF File Launch Presentation

Our short term plan is to review the top priorities, establish our long term planning objectives and timeline and by March next year go back to the community to discuss which other projects the Roleystone community see as those that can be developed in the short term as community based and driven projects.

To view the Community Plan and where we go from here with it open this file. PDF File Community Plans
