Publicity for community events

The CGDN website at www.cremorne.tas.au was used to publicise a local quiz night to raise funds for people adversely affected by the January 2013 Tasmanian bushfires.

Ian Pearce, of the Cremorne Community Group, says the fundraising event "ended up being attended by almost half the adult population of our little village and raised $3,800.  It demonstrated how a community website can spread information about events."

The website managers of www.williams.wa.au are working in collaboration with their local community newspaper to advertise Williams services. All advertisements placed in The Williams newspaper will be advertised on the community website at no cost.  The local paper is run entirely by volunteers, with all profits going back into the community.

The Williams site also provides web pages for the two major town events, The Quindanning Picnic Races and Williams Gateway Expo.  This has proved to be a great help for those organisations in the promotion and running of their events.  Event entry forms can be downloaded on their own pages.
