Did you know that the Shire of Merredin has an events trailer that the community can hire? 

The trailer contains: 

  • 110 plastic white chairs

  • 1 BBQ and gas bottle
  • 1 flag pole

It is perfect for larger events such as fundraisers, weddings and community barbecues. 

The hire fee is $50 per day with a $200 bond. 

Contact the Shire on 9041 1611 for further information or to make a booking for the event trailer. 

 

Share It - Blare It

If you have an opportunity or event you would like the Merredin community to know about then the Shire's 'Share It - Blare It' campaign is for you.

The concept behind this campaign is that you let us know about an event your community group has coming up or perhaps a special your business has on or maybe an employment opportunity you'd like to advertise. The Shire will then share this information on our Facebook page to raise awareness about your upcoming event, business opportunity, etc.

To participate - email your opportunity to us at media@merredin.wa.gov.au or call us on 9041 1611 or message it to us via Facebook. There's no cost involved. Conditions do include: 

  • Only information for events and business opportunities/notices within the Merredin Shire will be posted to the Shire’s Facebook page;
  • This excludes events/information requested to be shared by neighbouring Shires and the State/Federal government; 
  • Posts should be from businesses and organisations only. Anything of a personal nature by an individual will not be accepted as the idea of 'Share It - Blare It' is to allow for information about job vacancies, local events, etc. to be published; 
  • The type of information to be shared can be anything from upcoming events, general information, job vacancies, specials for business, etc; and 
  • Information that will not be shared includes content containing derogatory language, content deemed to be of a defamatory nature to another group or the Shire of Merredin and content deemed to be of a non-informative or misleading nature to the general public. 

Questions? Contact the Shire on 9041 1611.
