I recently passed the new eye-catching pavilion and synthetic hockey field just off Cobains Road, Sale and couldn't help stopping to have a look around.
This addition to the Gippsland Regional Sports Complex will soon be the latest in a string of local infrastructure projects to be finished and ready to use.
Well done to the Gippsland businesses which have been part of this project: Drouin's A1 Civil, Sale’s RAL Constructions and Clint Kelly Excavations from Montgomery.
I don't expect spotting the brightly coloured pavilion will be a problem for teams from out of town.

We are all working to put veterans and their families first.

Coinciding with the opening of the Invictus Games I have been hosting my 5-Eyes Ministerial colleagues from Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States under a shared commitment to discuss veterans' mental health and transition from military to civilian life.

Our men and women serve side by side on our battlefields and we are united in ensuring our nations understand and honour the service and the sacrifice our veterans and their families make in defending our values our freedoms.

We recognised this committment by signing a joint Statement of Intent that acknowledges the benefits of working together to explore cooperative actions to collaborate on strategies in areas of common interest that recognise, support and care for the defence and veteran communities and their families.
