A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT:
I would like to welcome you to the Corrimal Chamber of Commerce (CCC) Website.
The CCC represents the following areas :
Fairy Meadow, Towradgi, Tarrawanna, Corrimal, Bellambi, Woonona, Russell Vale, Bulli & Thirroul.
Since the new committee took over in March 2014 we have worked hard to represent the area that we look after, below are just some of the issues we have worked together for the Community of the area we represent:
We are a founding member of the Corrimal Revitalisation Action Group (CRAG) who has worked with Wollongong City Council (W.C.C) to compose a Draft Master-plan for the revitalisation of Corrimal that went before council in November 2015 where it was officially adopted.
We worked with Ryan Park MP (Member for Keira) and Wollongong City Council to receive a mural costing over $33,000 to be painted in Corrimal CBD.
We applied and obtained a grant from Southern Phones to install a Defibrillator at the Corrimal Community Centre & Library.
We worked with Wollongong City Council to install new sign’s at both ends of the suburb welcoming people to Corrimal.
We are working with Wollongong City Council to install over 18 new pieces of Public Art to be installed into the area.
We worked with Bellambi Life Saving Club and Future Care Dental Services to operate the first Wollongong Community Dental Week, where children between 2 & 17 could receive free dental treatment under the Child Dental Benefit Scheme.
We worked with Corrimal Cougars Rugby Football Club and The Corrimal Community of Schools to present the first Carols in Corrimal, where over $900 was raised for the Bellambi Junior Life Saving Club.
We work with Corrimal RSL and Bluejuice Events to organise “Spring into Corrimal” which is now the largest one day free family festival in Regional NSW, where over 60,000 people attended in 2016.
We are winners of the Local Chamber of Commerce Award 2014 (Illawarra), Finalist for the 2015 and 2016 Local Chamber of Commerce Award, Winner of the Australia Day Community Group of the Year Award (Illawarra Region) and our latest accolade Finalist in the 2016 Regional Achievement and Community Awards.
We are a dedicated team of volunteers that work tirelessly for the improvement of services and businesses in our local area.
I invite you to contact me, to discuss how we can work together to make our area thrive once again.
