Volunteer Drive 2020

We need you now!

Borrowing from American rock band Chicago’s 1976 hit ‘If You Leave Me Now’, we ‘Need You Now’!


2020 is going to be a huge year for the Baysie Rollers building on the success of last year’s inaugural Baysie Arts and Street Fest. We are looking to build an ‘Ideas Bank’ for the next festival in 2021 and we need your help.


This will involve working with our community to get their creative juices and ideas flowing on the design, planning and execution of the 2021 Festival. Whatever your ideas, we want you to be involved to help create, build and deliver another spectacular event.

 

In the meantime, we plan to deliver a variety of events in 2020 including a Sustainability Event called 'Baysie Up’, an Art Auction, further Business Networking events, Laneway Activation and lots, lots more. 


But to do all of things we need more volunteers!


If you have skills to share, or want to learn about event management, fund raising for events, social media, community engagement, develop your creative side or just want to meet new people who have fun in making a difference in your community, then Baysie Rollers is the organisation for you.


The Baysie Rollers were formed in 2016 and are a Town Team committed to connecting the community of Bayswater and activating the Town Centre.  A relatively new phenomenon, Town Teams are positive and proactive organisations that include businesses, landowners, community organisations and residents. They work collaboratively with their local government to improve a place or area, often a town centre or main street. Town Teams are doers!

They:

  • Provide vision and leadership for their place
  • Are positive and proactive
  • Are apolitical in their approach
  • Get stuck in and have a go rather than waiting for someone else to do something
  • Independent 
  • Run by the community for the community


Each team has different priorities and focuses, but all share this common approach. Town Teams are catalysts for change in their local area. The Town Team model breaks down the barriers that often divide businesses, residents and local governments, and helps everyone to better understand the challenges and the opportunities to improve places. Every action is important, and everybody should have fun in doing it.

About the Baysie Rollers

Established in 2015 the Baysie Rollers is a network of community volunteers and stakeholders focused on connecting the community and revitalizing and growing the Bayswater Town Centre.


We are a ‘Not for Profit’ registered association who aim to facilitate connections amongst our community and build wider networks that lead to a vibrant, creative and prosperous community and Town Centre. A place in which people want to belong, live and work.


Since 2015, the Baysie Rollers has delivered over 40 different activities and events bringing thousands of people together. We meet regularly, discussing and sharing ideas and information. Each activity involves the participation of local residents, volunteers, business people and other community groups. Continuously tapping into the skills and expertise of the community and building a strong local volunteer base. 


Since our inception, volunteers have contributed over five thousand hours of their valuable time in the planning and execution of our events and activities. The contribution in reasonable dollar terms is more than $250,000.



Baysie Arts & Street Fest

We hosted our 1st street fest on Sunday 31st March 2019 right in the heart of Bayswater.


It was a huge success with approximately 15,000 attendees. We hosted a wide variety of events during the day including market stalls, food trucks, live music and arts performances, historical events, a dog show, workshops, lantern parade and firework finale.
