!!!! ALERT – CORONAVIRUS – (COVID-19) !!!!!

As you may be aware the Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, is now a pandemic.

There are currently no diagnosed cases of coronavirus within our Shire, however we need to be vigilant, proactive and be prepared as possible to deal with the virus and its impact on our community.

Council supports the NSW and Federal Governments’ initiative of ‘social distancing’ as it is a way to help slow the spread of the virus.  That means Council has made the hard decision to cancel upcoming community events such as the Warialda Honey Festival, The Sapphires live performances at The Roxy and Council’s upcoming Community Meetings.  Other groups and organisations are also taking such steps with the cancellation of events such as nation-wide ANZAC Day ceremonies.

Council has a Crisis Management Team who are currently implementing strategies to ensure the continued delivery of Council’s essential services and they will be providing necessary information to the community as required.

In order to ensure the safety of our staff and customers Council are implementing additional safety measures.  Where possible visitors to services will be asked to maintain the recommended 1.5-personal distance measure, and at times may be asked to wash hands or use hand sanitizer.

In future if your visit is of a non-urgent nature, or are experiencing flu like symptoms we recommend that you postpone your visit, or alternatively call the service.

We also request that cash payments be limited. We offer a number of alternative payment methods:

  • Online payments can be made using the BPAY details on your rates or water notice.
  • Bank transfer: Gwydir Shire Council BSB 082-649 Account Number 509 547 471, the reference will be your Assessment Number, Debtor no, Invoice no, Surname.

  • Counter payments will be accepted over the counter, preferred method of payment is by Debit or Credit card to limit cash handling.

EOI for the Management of the Roxy Theatre Bingara

Background
The Roxy Theatre, situated in the main street of Bingara, is a striking building, with a history as colourful as its painted exterior.  Built in 1936 by three Greek partners from the island of Kythera in Greece, the Roxy Theatre operated as a cinema until 1958, after which it was closed and lay dormant for forty years. In May 2004, the magnificent theatre was faithfully restored to its original splendour and was re-opened to the public as a cinema, performing arts venue and multi-purpose function centre.

Gwydir Shire Council are seeking expressions of interest from interested parties for the management of this facility. Council is willing to consider a range of possible options including individuals, community group or partnership management structures. The main scope of this role includes:

  • The management of venue bookings including live performances, meetings, conferences and private functions.
  • Oversee and manage the administration and coordination of events including logistics, room set up, technical requirements and ticketing.
  • Promote the Roxyas regional centre for performing arts, and a key tourism asset for the Gwydir Shire.
  • Coordinate all aspects of building maintenance and repairs, OH&S, compliance and essential services.
  • Work with stakeholder groups to ensure the venue is used to its full potential.

The role is ideally suited to entities with previous experience in events, theatre or venue management and who are flexible, adaptable and able work with a range of stakeholders. For more information on the Roxy visit www.roxybingara.com.au or contact Georgia Standerwick on 0409 901 540. Download a copy of this EOI here Roxy Management EOI
