Council sponsorship available

Redland City Council sponsorship is available for upcoming community initiatives, including events, projects, services or activities that are held in Redland City.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said the latest round of sponsorship will open on 15 February and support initiatives to be held between July and December this year, with applications accepted until Friday 18 March.

“Last financial year, Council provided more than $500,000 in sponsorship and community grants, supporting a diverse range of events and initiatives that enriched the broader community,” she said.

“The inaugural Redlands Rockabilly Revival will have the Cleveland Showgrounds buzzing with cool hot rods, live music, retro market stalls, kids’ rides, delicious food and much more on Sunday 13 March thanks to Council sponsorship.

“We also sponsored the inaugural Quandamooka Festival last year, a three-month calendar of more than 60 events presented between July and September 2015 celebrating the traditional culture, country and people of the Redlands.

“While events enrich the cultural fabric of our city, we know they also provide economic benefits, attracting visitors from far and wide and putting our city on the map.”

Community and cultural spokesperson Cr Lance Hewlett said Council sponsorship attracted a rich diversity of events to the Redlands.

“From the strawberry eating competitions at RedFest, which has been part of our region for almost 60 years, to transporting a grand piano across Moreton Bay for last year’s Stradbroke Chamber Music Festival, Council supports a variety of events throughout the year,” he said.

“Cycling, triathlon and hockey were among the sports to benefit from recent Council sponsorship, with the Wynnum Redlands Cycling Festival, Raby Bay Triathlon and the 2015 U13 Girls State Hockey Championships among the events sponsored.

Applications for the next round of sponsorship will be accepted from 15 February until 18 March 2016 and will support community-based activities and events that provide measurable benefits for the community.

Residents are reminded that applications for the next round of community grants will close on 26 February, with funding available for Organisation support, Project support and Conservation initiatives.
