Earlier this morning I had the great pleasure of joining Joe Helper, the
Minister for Agriculture, at an early breakfast meeting with Corangamite shire
councillors and their chief executive officer. But it was last Thursday that I
had enormous pleasure in announcing a state government allocation of $225 000
from the Small Towns Development Fund for the redevelopment of the Port Campbell
community centre. It is part of a $300 000 project which has been driven by the
Port Campbell Recreational Reserve Committee of Management and supported by the
Port Campbell playgroup, Port Campbell cricket club and the Corangamite shire
family day care service.
This is yet another fine example of the Brumby Labor government
working closely with communities and local government to deliver first-class
infrastructure which caters for the needs of those who live in rural and
regional Victoria. I would like to thank the reserve committee for its tireless
efforts in securing this important community space, and I look forward to
returning to Port Campbell to join the local community in celebrating the
realisation of its vision.
