Bega Chamber of Commerce and Industry has organised a Community Poster Competition. The aim of the activity was to provide an opportunity for smaller communities around Bega to come together in a positive way and have a fun time around identifying all the good things about their community. Bega Chamber provided the materials for the banners, funds for the community and prize money from a grant provided by COORDINAIRE and the Primary Health Network.
The Chamber is proud of the end results , the communities of Quaama, Cobargo , Bemboka, Candelo and Tathra have created wonderful banners which are now on display at the Sapphire Market Place in Bega. All the banners were exceptional and a winner could not be determined by the judges, a tie was declared and Bega Chamber split the prize money equally between all the communities. Everyone had a great time at the celebration dinner at the Peanut Eatery after the judging.
The Banner have been displayed at the Cobargo Village Festival on April 17 and then returned to the Sapphire Market Place to be enjoyed by all the community. They will be displayed at the CWA Conference at the Bega Showground between May 3 and May 6. The Banners will then go back to the Communities who created them where they will be proudly displayed.
