Welcome to One Community Together

“Supporting our welcoming, proud, safe and attractive Clarence Plains Community”

One Community Together is a collective of residents, community groups and organisations in Clarence Plains. We work together on shared goals with, and for, our local community that build on our individual strengths to create positive change together. 

Clarence Plains is a sweeping valley on the eastern shore that tracks the Clarence Plains Rivulet to the River Derwent; and is home to the communities of Clarendon Vale, Glebe Hill, Oakdowns and Rokeby. 

Welcome Finn!

This brightly-coloured individual has joined One Community Together as our storyteller for the Shaping The Plains story project. Finn will be collecting the personal stories, photos, sentiments, and histories of the people who make Clarence Plains unique – that means you!

You’ll be seeing Finn’s face a lot around our community centres throughout 2021. Feel free to say hello and share something from your life for our project. You can also contact the page if you’d like to arrange a meetup.

We are so proud to have a diverse voice leading this project for us, and we hope Shaping The Plains has as many unique and diverse people as possible taking part because of it.

Over the last few years One Community Together has assisted in, organised and supported multiple events in our community aimed at “Supporting our welcoming, proud, safe and attractive Clarence Plains Community.” These events have ranged from community workshops to discuss issues that concern our neighbourhoods and how we can work together to come up with solutions, all the way through to community celebrations and festivals. We’ve mobilised volunteers to help clean up our streets and parks and have worked with Council on projects that have made our streets and green spaces more attractive and safe. We’re in the process of documenting some of our “Highlights” and you can check them out here on our site. If you’d like to get involved with any of our upcoming projects we’d love to hear from you.

Events – Past, Present & Future

Meanwhile down at the Grace Centre things are looking a whole heap different!

What a difference a lovely entrance and brand new toilets make. Add in disabled parking and access and you have one darn good renovation in anyone’s books. Grace Church has been busy making the Centre even more accessible to our local community and we think they’ve done an awesome job! The Grace Centre has come a long way in 5 years and goes to show that if you start where you are, use what you have and do what you can, you can achieve more than you ever thought possible. You just have to make a start!

Made possible by generous donations from Grace Church and the Tasmanian Community Fund.

One Community Together Art Project – Welcome to Clarence Plains

Our Community Art Project has officially launched! OCT would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been involved along the way. We would like to give a special thanks to the Tas Community Fund for making this project possible. We are very proud of these works and hope the community can smile when they see them along the side of the road. If you haven’t seen them yet, keep your eyes peeled on the south arm highway – Photos by Sam Shelley and others
