2010 Annual Report

The value of working in partnership with the regional community...

Parklands continued to achieve significant outcomes, through our continued focus on “lots of people all doing a little”…. Collectively, over to $748,826 worth of time was contributed towards on ground outcomes during the past year.

Parklands Albury Wodonga seeks to provide leadership and continue to make a real difference through a “partnership culture”, where partnerships are integral to how work gets accomplished and community connections are made.

The Annual Report includes charts that demonstrates our commitment to this process of community involvement, with the longer term goal of greater community “ownership” and stewardship.

Parks are about people. Evolution is when participation in a project evolves into taking a role in a Friends Group or as a financial supporter. The time commitment may not be more, but the level of commitment has grown to one of guardianship of “our community park” rather than “helping out parklands”.

Just as we seek partnerships with “lots of people all doing a little”, this philosophy is also applicable to our financial sustainability. The Annual Repot also includes charts that demonstrate how we have diversified our revenue base.
