Colour Terang named Community Event of the Year

The Colour Terang Festival added to the Shire’s social and cultural calendar to fill the void left by the Terang Country Music Festival.

It included a colour dash, kite making, markets, live music, art displays, vintage cars, churches, nature play, photography, quilts, roving performers, musicians, a choir and an art installation.

The event was the result of tremendous collaboration between the Terang Progress Association, Lions, Rotary Club, CWA, Nexus Club, Cricket Club, four churches, local artists and business owners.

Terang Progress Association President Ben Dennis, one of the key organisers, said receiving the Community Event Award was “really humbling”.

“It took a week or two to get over the imposter syndrome. It’s great to recognise the efforts of a lot of people over an extended period of time. It wasn’t just us. There were another five or six groups.”

Corangamite Shire Mayor Neil Trotter congratulated all of the winners and nominees.

Cr Trotter also congratulated the other 16 individuals and organisers of the four other events that received Australia Day achievement awards.

“We are very fortunate to have such proactive and community-minded people in the shire.

“They are an inspiration to the rest of the Shire when it comes to ensuring a strong culture, social connections and economic opportunities that help build a prosperous nation.”
