The latest stage of the multimillion-dollar upgrade works at Gannons Park, Peakhurst, were unveiled recently by Minister Rob Stokes, the Federal member for Banks, David Coleman, the Mayor of Georges River Council, Kevin Greene, and me.
Speaker, what makes the community groups in the St George area so valuable is the commitment and dedication of their devoted volunteers. I rise today to acknowledge Michelle Newman who has done an outstanding job as CEO of the Riverwood Community Centre for the past two years.
I acknowledge the continued work of Share the Dignity, which is a national charity working to end period poverty in Australia. Every year my office assists in its donation drive to provide female hygiene products to those in need. I am always honoured to do my part in assisting this fantastic cause. It is so important that we work towards increasing equitable access to critical hygiene for women of all circumstances.
Speaker I am proud to recognise the outstanding achievement of the St George Illawarra Dragons who have recently won the NSW Wheelchair Rugby League title. After a tough match for both sides they were able to come away with a 58-40 win over Minor Premiers the West Tigers at Menai Indoor Sports Centre.
