We need to start moving as though our lives depend on it - because if we don’t move it, we’ll lose it.

Safer roads save lives. My passion for road safety is well known so you can imagine my pleasure to announce more roads funding for Gippsland. More than $1 million to fix priority road safety blackspots including the Sale-Toongabbie Road (pictured) for the section from Nambrok Road to Denison Road.
Other roads to receive Black Spot funding are Liddiard Road in Traralgon, Freestone Creek Road in Briagolong and the intersection of Maryvale Road and Crinigan Road at Morwell.

Gippsland Football and Netball League grand finals will return to Morwell this year for the first time since 2014.
The grand finals will be played on Saturday, September 22. It will allow the club to showcase its new netball courts and facilities completed earlier this year with $5 million of funding that I secured from the Federal Government.
A new pavilion and change rooms to be shared between Morwell Cricket Club and Morwell Football Netball Club is currently underway and when complete, will provide the club with some of the best facilities in the region.

Funding for volunteer groups across Gippsland is now available, with grants between $1000 and $5000 on offer to support the work of volunteers.
The grants can be put towards computers, kitchen equipment, training, transport - things that make the work of volunteers easier and help to recruit more volunteers in our region.
Applications for volunteer grants close at 2pm on September 18. For more information, visit www.communitygrants.gov.au.
I'm pictured with Morwell Tennis Club volunteers, who received $4000 in the previous round of grants. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our community and by continuing to help each other and work together, we are building a stronger and safer Gippsland.
