Tuesday, 15 October 2019

On 1 September I was pleased to attend the Penshurst RSL Panthers Australian Football League grand final.

The club has teams for boys and girls aged between five and 17 and is managed on a voluntary basis.

It was great to attend the grand final and present the under-14s girls' team with certificates recognising their impressive performance and sportsmanship over the last 12 months.

Connells Point Sailing Club

Tuesday, 15 October 2019

I welcome the funding provided to Connells Point Sailing Club for equipment repairs and operating classes.

The club has had a longstanding presence within the community, with their inaugural meeting being held in 1938.

The club sails along the Georges River between Tom Uglys Bridge and Oatley.

The club has grown tremendously from its humble beginnings, with members originally operating out of their backyards.

Now the club uses a clubhouse in Donnelly Park and has trained sailors who have enjoyed success at both State and National levels.
