If you’re a resident or business in the city and are interested in engaging with your local community, then the Neighbourhood Marketplace on Thursday, May 6 is an event you don’t want to miss.
Co-hosted by Residents 3000, City Precinct and the City of Melbourne and taking place from 6pm to 8.30pm upstairs at the Kelvin Club, the event will see a range of city-based exhibitors set up stalls to share products, services and information.
With Residents 3000 leading its first Neighbourhood Marketplace event in 2019 in response to National Neighbour Day, the initiative allows locals to connect with some of the council’s agencies and local small businesses that contribute to life in the city.
From dogs, aging tech and waste to libraries, capital works and City Baths, the City of Melbourne will have a variety of its officers present to answer questions and provide information.
A number of small businesses from the City Precinct will also feature, including the Athenaeum Library, Clementine’s, Hearn’s Hobbies, Il Papiro, Laneway Learning and The Melbourne Map, while local police, Men’s Shed and even CBD News will have a presence.
While the event is largely focused on community within the CBD, Residents 3000 committee member Artur Hajda said that all resident groups across the city had been invited to attend in an effort to further strengthen connections across the municipality.
The event follows Residents 3000’s first face-to-face initiative since the easing of COVID-19 restrictions with its Trivia Night on April 8 at the Kelvin Club, which proved another great success.
Neighbourhood Marketplace will be held at the Kelvin Club, Melbourne Place on May 6 and is free to attend but the space will be limited to 100 guests due to COVID restrictions. Food and drinks will also be served.
