update re: latest Grant application round

The first application round for 2020 closed at the end of February and while we usually are able to come back to the applicants with a decision within 30 working days, due to the pandemic and the lockdown we are still working through things and need a bit more time.  We really appreciate your patience on this, we will respond to each applicant just as soon as we can.
Stay Safe and Be Kind

AGM 2019

The Golden Bay Community Trust is holding its Annual General  Meeting on the 20th of June 2019 at 1:30pm, upstairs at the Wholemeal Cafe, Takaka.

Logo Competition Winner announced

Please take notice of our beautiful new logo on our website front page and the colour one below!
Earlier this year we held a competition asking locals to submit their logo ideas to the Trust.   All the entries were fantastic and it was a tough choice for the Trustees and Distribution Committee who were shown the logos with the artist’s name and details removed.  The votes were tallied and  we are happy to announce the winner is Golden Bay resident and photographer Carrie Dobbs!

Round one now closed

Applications have now closed for the first grant funding round of 2019.  Good luck to all those that have applied.
