Go Local Clunes
Small businesses in regional areas have been doing it tough. So, we got together with local businesses and groups in Clunes and, together with the Clunes Tourist & Development Association and Clunes Neighbourhood House (our parent organisation), we met to see what we could do to boost business in the area. Go Local Clunes is an outcome of that process. It's funded by Business Victoria's Business Chambers and Trader Group Round Three grants.

Good community projects don’t just happen. They are built on trust and collaboration in spaces that allow open conversation. It helps when those conversations can be facilitated and captured. It helps even more if there are people or organisations involved who have the leadership, time and resources to assist in turning those ideas into action. This is what happened with Go Local Clunes. Our project is not complex or groundbreaking, but the way we’ve gone about it as a town is. As a town, we should be proud of how we approach issues impacting our community because it is a skill we can repeatedly use as we tackle issues that impact us. If we share our experiences (see the documents below), it’s also an opportunity for other like-minded places to do something similar.
