ELWOOD SAILING CLUB.
Tuesday, 30 April 2019.
Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (17:18):
Situated on the beautiful foreshore, Elwood Sailing Club is an active part of Elwood and a hub for the local community. The club membership remains strong.
Amongst many events, the community joins together outside the Elwood Club each year for Anzac Day. Up to a thousand attend the event.
Unfortunately many elderly people, including ex-service people, who visit are unable to utilise the facilities because it lacks a lift.
The club does need additional work, including upgrades to the kitchen, but a lift would be a game changer for the club and community access.
I congratulate the club on the important role it plays as a community hub in Elwood.
