Conclusion of the Bonner Mingle program

Following more than five fun-filled years of events and activities in Bonner, the Mingle Community Development program has now officially concluded. The Mingle team have enjoyed their time in Bonner, getting to know residents and working alongside of you as you developed. The Mingle program provided opportunities through activities, and events to bring new residents together, to become involved in community life, but most importantly to build greater connection as a community.

We hope the events and activities that have been delivered throughout the program have enabled you to meet your neighbours and make new long lasting friendships. We encourage you to continue to connect and develop as a community, and to take advantage of the facilities provided for you in the suburb of Bonner.

As many of you may be aware a small group of Bonner residents have set up a ‘Bonner Community’ Facebook page, which is designed to help you connect with others in your community. It’s a place where residents can share local events, ideas, and notices online. Be sure to follow to the Bonner Community page at www.facebook.com/bonnercommunity

In the early stages of the Mingle program the Land Development Agency installed a community noticeboard, which is located outside of the Neville Bonner School (opposite the shops). This noticeboard now belongs to the community and will be available for all residents to use, for promotion of local activities, events, notices and small businesses. A key for the noticeboard is available at the Neville Bonner School (reception) and the Bonner residents group are also working with the local shops to arrange a second key collection point.

Updates regarding the key will be posted on the residents Facebook page, so we encourage you to check the page for these details, or to contact the residents group via the page if you need assistance. The group would also love to hear from you if you’d like to get more actively involved in your community.

The Mingle team would like to thank those of you who were able to contribute to the Mingle program and the Bonner community over the past five years. It was our great pleasure getting to know you, and we wish you all the very best as your community continues to grow.
