Creative Communities Scheme
Applications are now open for the latest round of funding from the Creative Communities Scheme. The current funding round is for projects between 18 May and 31 October.
We have a partnership with Creative New Zealand to promote, support and increase participation in community arts and cultural activities within the Gore District.
Any group, organisation or individual that meets the criteria can apply. For example, performances by community choirs, hip-hop groups, theatre companies, or art projects that enable young people (under 18 years) to engage with and participate in the arts.
Applications close at 5:00pm Wednesday 29 June. For more information, visit our Grants and Funding page where you can find the application form to download.
Plumbers invited to lodge expressions of interest
The Council is calling for expressions of interest from plumbers wanting to be involved in the Elizabeth Street Pipeline Renewal project.
We are looking to establish a panel of between three to five plumbers to carry out the separation of wastewater and stormwater pipelines within private properties on the Elizabeth Street catchment.
Plumbers wanting to be considered for the panel should contact our 3 Waters Project Engineer Aaron Green, phone 021-318-632 or email [email protected].
To learn more, here is the Request for Proposal.
The closing date for proposals is 4:00pm Friday May 20.
Flush water before drinking
The Ministry of Health recommends flushing a mugful of water from your drinking water tap each morning, before use, to remove any traces of metals from the plumbing fittings that may have dissolved.
This simple precaution is recommended for all households in the District, whether on public or private water supplies, as trace metals in water can pose a small risk to your health.
