The Hon. V.A. TARZIA (Hartley—Minister for Police, Emergency Services and Correctional Services) (16:55): Until there are effective vaccinations available and there is widespread immunity, we will continue to deal with a situation that can certainly change rapidly.

FUND MY NEIGHBOURHOOD

Nov 28, 2017  |  speech

Mr TARZIA (Hartley) (15:42): I rise today to speak to the recent Fund My Neighbourhood grants that saw a local project in Hartley successfully funded, namely, the Morialta netball and tennis club court and facilities upgrade. I congratulate the Morialta Netball Club, a fantastic organisation that over the past 10 years has seen tremendous growth, with over 120 families from the community actively involved in the netball club, which is run by many dedicated volunteers. The last resurfacing of these courts was over 20 years ago and they now have much cracking and lifting in many areas.
