Members Statement - 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.
