Pottsville locals urged to become part of beloved community hall

Tweed Shire Council

If you’re a Pottsville local looking for a rewarding community-based volunteer role, now’s the time to put your hand up to be part of the Pottsville Beach Community Hall Committee.

Current committee members, who have selflessly run the space for many years, have signalled they wish to disband the group after their annual general meeting next week.

The annual general meeting (AGM), to be held on Tuesday 11 October at 10 am, will hear the chairperson declare all positions vacant. There are multiple roles available, including:

  • president/chairperson

  • vice president/deputy chairperson

  • treasurer

  • booking officer

  • assistant booking officer

  • secretary

  • public officer.

“If you have skills that you think will fit any of these roles, we would love to hear from you,” Council’s community development project officer Sharon Moore said.

“It’s such a great way to meet others and support your local community. It can also show you’ve got a community mindset for future employers.

“The hall is part of Council’s commitment to support the local community by creating stronger community bonds and providing opportunities to be more active and healthy.”

People with skills across a range of areas are encouraged to apply. If you’re interested in any of these positions, please fill out an expression of interest form before 10am on Thursday 11 October.

Opened in 1985, this vibrant community hall has served the area as a to-hire space for a variety of community clubs and events – from dance and exercise groups to private weddings and parties. The hall is the largest public venue in Pottsville and can hold up to 250 people.

Council provides a range of venues to help create a strong, cohesive and creative community. These include community centres, neighbourhood centres, auditoriums, meeting rooms and public halls.
