It’s that time of year again!
How did that come around so quickly? I guess time flies when you’re busy, and we have been very, very busy here at CNH in 2018!
So it’s Christmas in Clunes time here again in December. Every Friday evening before Christmas we will celebrate this very special time of year with the Clunes community and our wider circle of friends and family.
The programme is:
Friday 7th December – STREET PARADE
Our first Street Parade was a huge success last year, and we can’t wait to see what creative and colourful creations people come up with this year. To join in as a group or an individual, register with CNH by calling in or phoning 5345 4078. It’s free, but we need to know numbers, so please register soon.
For those who may not want to march in the parade, but would like to add to the colour and fun in the street, here’s a sneak peak at some of the colourful designs designer Mel Drummond is creating free for anyone who would like to join in. It’s not too late – Mel has generously made himself available several sessions a week for fittings.
Friday 14th December – BIG BUSH DANCE!
Join renowned bush band BUSHWAHZEE and other entertainers for a night of fun and frolicking in Fraser Street.
Supported by renowned balladeer Brooke Taylor.
Come along and dance your feet off.
Friday 21st December – CAROLS NIGHT
Bring along the whole family and sing your heart out along with our performers at Carols Night.
Starring Kylie Auldist.
And for the first time…
A FIREWORKS FINALE!
Notice to Pet Owners: Please note that the Fireworks Display will commence at 9.20pm for a maximum of 4 minutes. We have deliberately selected lower volume fireworks to minimise the impact on animals.
Watch this space for announcements of more details, and follow us on our facebook page for current updates.
Art Attack is a two year youth program funded by the Victorian Government to tackle significant social change through art and creativity. Art Attack will culminate in a public art event in Clunes, co-designed by local young people and Clunes-based circus/physical theatre company Asking for Trouble. We are delighted to have this opportunity to help with building our community through this program.
We had a great celebration at Clunes Neighbourhood House’s Open Day on the 4th of November. Thanks to the Creswick & District Community Bank and the talents of Tom Ripon we launched the Community Bank Art Factory and had a chance to put all the new spaces into action!
Building a Safe And Supportive Community
At the Clunes Neighborhood House, we have now formed Child Safety Policy as part of our strategic planning process beyond 2018. Our aim is to nurture safe and supportive networks for children, their families, and ultimately the wider community.

It comes as no surprise to anyone that employment is an issue in rural Victoria, especially for young people. Developed in partnership with Daylesford Neighbourhood Centre, this report helps all stakeholders understand and explore ways to enhance the employability of our community, in particular our youth.
