Hepburn unpacks new toolkit for party planning

Hepburn Shire Council has launched a new event toolkit to help local event organisers to plan and carry out events successfully.

Mayor, Brian Hood said whether the event was big or small, the Event Toolkit was a one-stop-shop for event organisers.

“Events are an important drawcard for community and visitors in our shire and a driver in our local economy. The toolkit features information on event planning, risk management, sponsorship, grants, coordinating volunteers and staff, how to run committee meetings and post-event reviews and surveys,” he said.

“It aims to make it easy to access everything organisers need when planning an event in our Shire.”

Council says the development of the toolkit delivers on two aspects in Council’s Event Strategy 2020-2025; to build the capacity of the event industry and to enhance and measure the value and impacts on events.

“The toolkit provides event organisers with the resources, templates and tools to run events that are successful, sustainable and compliant,” said Mayor Hood.

The Event Toolkit is available on Council’s website at
