Summer Events Volunteers Call

The Rural City of Murray Bridge is gearing up to engage and train community minded volunteers for an unprecedented number of family friendly events to be held in January 2020.

VOLUNTEERS can add the international SANTOS Tour Down Under and Murray River Splash Festival to their resumes by supporting Council’s drive to recruit for summer events.

The Rural City of Murray Bridge is gearing up to engage and train community minded volunteers for an unprecedented number of family friendly events to be held in January 2020.

A fireworks spectacular on the Bridge, visible from Sturt Reserve on New Year’s Eve, will kick off the Murray River Splash Festival with a bang.

New and exciting events will be held every day throughout January transforming the riverfront into a summer playground on the land and in the water, culminating with Australia Day celebrations on Sunday 26 January.

To top it all off, Murray Bridge will host two stages of the Santos Tour Down Under: the start of the Stage 2 women’s race on Friday 17 January and the finish of the Stage 4 men’s race and Challenge Tour on Friday 24 January.

Volunteer Coordinator Ngareta Cronin said harnessing community spirit would lift the events to a whole new level and the opportunity to be involved with an international event would provide invaluable experience for volunteers.
“We need volunteers to help make Murray Bridge the best it can possibly be during January,” she said.
“We are asking for community volunteers to help us set up and decorate Bridge Street and Sturt Reserve, distribute brochures, welcome visitors and take care of our VIPs.
“Most roles will be required to undertake training in December and January although we are also interested in hearing from people who may be available now.
“Volunteering is a fantastic way to make friends, build networks, learn new skills and, most importantly, have fun.”
