Organising Community Events
Why hold a community event?
Organising a community event can seem very daunting for small groups and the process can sometimes appear complex. However, community events are worth doing and a successful event can be very satisfying for the organisers and for the people attending.
There are many reasons why your group might want to hold a community event, for example:
- For fun and friendship in your local community
- For publicity for your project
- To celebrate the work of your group
- To attract new members to your group
- To increase the use of your green space
- To try and involve hard to reach members of the community
- To co-ordinate a work day/make a visual impact on the area
- To help your project gain some momentum
- To provide publicity to attract funders
Whatever your reason for holding an event, such activities are very important in developing community awareness and community events are essential for the long-term future of your project – so get organising!
