Council was excited to bring Queensland Ballet to the region in early 2020 to deliver a 4-day Dance Camp for 5-12 year olds. These fully-booked workshops gave local young dancers a great opportunity to work directly with Queensland Ballet dance teachers right here in the Lockyer Valley.
Council has also brought the award-winning hip-hop dance crew, Elements Collective to the region to run hip-hop dance workshops, including adult classes.
The 2020-21 Dance Workshop program was designed following community consultation on the most sought-after dance styles workshops and is generously funded by a Regional Arts Development Fund grant which is a partnership between Lockyer Valley Regional Council and the Queensland Government.
Inflatable Soccer Field
Council has an inflatable soccer field that can be loaned out to community groups and schools for the purpose of community building and fundraising.
Community groups interested in hiring the Inflatable Soccer Field should download the Inflatable Soccer Field Instructions as well as the Hire Application Loan Agreement Booking prior to contacting Council.
While loan of the Inflatable Soccer Field is generally free, Council reserves the right to charge a bond against potential damage and or loss. Hirers are fully responsible for any damage, loss or injury that occurs while the equipment is in their possession and care.
Bookings are subject to availability - which can be checked by contacting Council's Community Activation Team on 1300 005 872 or emailing CETeam@lvrc.qld.gov.au
Disaster-ready Community Groups
Council recognises that community groups of all shapes and sizes play an important role in times of disaster. They may provide support services to people who have been directly affected by floods or fires; they may provide volunteers to help clean up; they may get programs up and running so that people can continue with as much of normal life as possible; or they may help in other ways.
For groups to be able to help following disasters, they need to be reasonably disaster proof themselves. To assist your group to be prepared and able to respond in a timely manner, we encourage you to download these resources below and share them with your group.
- Planning Checklist (PDF 283kb - will open in a new window)
- Recovery Toolkit (PDF 682kb - will open in a new window)
Remember, if you wait until a disaster strikes to think about preparing, it will likely be too late. Make time at your next group meeting to discuss your preparations.
If you need assistance, contact Council's Disaster Management Team on 1300 005 872 or email us.
