The Fairfield Village Traders is an active Association with an equally active committee.
Our purpose is to build a cohesive community, whilst at the same time ensuring that the centre continues to be an economic hub.
To assist us, funds are raised annually through a Special Rate Levy, whereby businesses along Station Street, Wingrove Street and Railway Place are charged an annual fee. This process is managed by Darebin City Council on a five-year cycle.
The committee draws down on these funds to put back into our marketing and promotions. These activities take many shapes and forms and include, but not restricted to Progressive Comedy Dinner Nights, Halloween Trick or Treat, Easter Egg Hunt. From time to time the association will print directories, Fairfield Shopping Bags, and we also host and maintain a website (fairfieldvillage.net.au). The Association is also active on social media - Facebook and Instagram.
Our Association also has a constant dialogue with Council representatives, across the economic, transport and the public realm. All these areas of Council, and their decisions impact on the prosperity of the Fairfield community, the place where we choose to work, it is our livelihood so we engage with them whenever possible.
The businesses in the Fairfield Village are charged an annual fee to deliver the above projects and employ a part-time co-ordinator. There is also an opportunity for other businesses in Fairfield to join if they feel that they can derive benefit. The membership entitles them to be a part of all of our activities, have a listing on our website, and be part of the social media space too. The fee is set by the committee at the AGM each year and the current fee is $495 (plus GST) per annum.
Any local business interested in joining, must complete the document listed right, and return to firstname.lastname@example.org.
