CANCELLED PLonQ: All in or All Out?

PLonQ is just short of three years since it was founded.

The organisation has grown and achieved despite the last two difficult years. PLonQ shows great promise.

However, PLonQ is at crossroads right now and seeking Committee Members willing to not only join us but to take on the positions of President and Vice President.

The growth of an organisation heavily relies on the input of members and the direction through their collective and various experiences. The Committee Members’ roles need to be rotated.

PLonQ aspired to form a like-minded core group from the active people, groups, organisations and businesses within the Borough and has made every effort to invite these individuals and groups to join us.

PLonQ now recognises for our small Borough, that we need to have an ‘all in’ or ‘all out’ approach to making greater things happen. We all need to be united.

There’s much to expand on:

  • PLonQ’s official organisational status
  • PLonQ Statement of Intent
  • Two websites (pointlonsdalevictoria.com.au and queenscliffvictoria.com.au) have catapulted the two towns into the top 5 positions on Google.
  • A strong presence on Instagram (via Borough of Queenscliffe and PLonQ Committee Member John Begg’s accounts)
  • Point Lonsdale Queenscliff Facebook page with over 700 followers
  • A retail printed directory for visitors
  • A great connection and collaborative relationship with the Borough of Queenscliffe (includes LoveLocal instagram/facebook accounts)
  • Ideas for a:
    • Heide Group art walk tour,
    • Bringing back the Geelong to Queenscliff Scooter race
    • More mobility transport to connect the two towns and encourage more local visitation off the ferry
  • And much more!

Join PLonQ and an ‘all in’ event

Place: CIRCA 1902
52 Hesse Street, Queenscliff 3225

Community Submission Call: Art About Town

Art admirers and patrons, PLonQ is seeking your ideas.

PLonQ and the local community have spoken much about art and sculpture forming an art trail around Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff.

In order to progress an ‘Art About Town’ idea PLonQ need to put a few publications together;

  • Permission request: one to request permission from various organisations, governing bodies and groups who Govern the various areas (ie Parks Victoria, Local, State & Federal Government);
  • Funding application: PLonQ anticipates that sources of funding could come from grant applications, businesses and locals in the community who are passionate about donating and sponsoring artists/artworks.

It’s going to take some planning! But PLonQ believes they can do it. Continue reading “Community Submission Call: Art About Town”

Q Borough Directory Draft.pdf

Q Borough Directory draft (open flat)


Although it is a difficult time for planning and spending, PLonQ believes it’s still a good time to progress some ‘no brainer’ projects, one of which is a local Directory flyer that local businesses/organisations can have available at their premises.

The images below are a mockup of the proposed Directory. The flat size would open out to A3 size (420mm x 297mm) and the finished size to DL (210mm x 99mm).

There will be a cost involved (probably around $50 – $79) but that depends on how many businesses/organisations participate.

Design, preparation and distribution are donated by PLonQ.

Please consider the impact this small flyer could have on the whole community.┬áBeing ‘in it together, and all the way’ is a pretty respectful approach.

Please provide your details and also any feedback, amendments, suggestions, edits and essentially – your confirmation.

PLonQ Committee Members are happy to come out and visit anyone requiring more information. Contact us via email at hello@plonq.orga.au
