Welcome to One Community Together
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.
We have an office at the Grace Centre, 11 Ralph Terrace Rokeby. If you’re a community member and you’d like to drop in and have a chat, call ahead on 0431 995 379 to arrange a time. We’d love to meet you!
Shaping the Plains
Breaking News! August 22
Meet Jade who has joined One Community Together as Project Worker for the Clarence Plains CENT Project which will kick off across our community soon.
CENT is a community exchange network where you can register online to trade goods, services and skills with each other without any money.
Through the online community network you can trade, barter or swap things in lots of different ways such as gardening, home help, baby-sitting, fresh produce, providing transport or teaching someone else a skill.
We’ll share more details soon and Jade will be out and about to help you learn how to register and start trading and swapping.
This project is proudly brought to you by the Community Life Team thanks to a Clarence City Council Partnership Grant.
One Community Together Clarence Plains has formed a Landcare Group! This is super exciting and we would love you to join us! With more people coming along to lend a hand we can create more gardens and improve the green spaces across Clarence Plains together. Everyone is welcome and you don’t need a green thumb, just a great attitude and be willing to have some fun with others. Please call us on 0431 995 379 or message us via our Facebook page or website.
Some of our Highlights
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.
