On Friday it was terrific to welcome the Treasurer to the Glen Waverley district for a jam-packed morning of local visits and meetings across my beautiful patch of the east. We started the day with a meeting in one of the delightful Brentford Square cafes, Culinaria, in Forest Hill bringing together a range of community stakeholders. These included Mitchell and Craig from the Glen Waverley traders, Penny and Mel from the Brentford Square traders, principal Jane Henderson from Vermont South Special School, principal Michael Cole from Glenallen special school, school council president Lisa Portell from Vermont Primary School, the CEO of the Cerebral Palsy Education Centre Claire Cotter and the manager of the Vermont South Neighbourhood House Carol I’Anson. Together we had a great discussion on the current challenges being experienced by these different groups, touching on how the Allan Labor government will continue to support these schools, community groups and businesses into the future. We also discussed how the Allan Labor government is making investments in our local community of Glen Waverley and how these will have an ongoing positive impact.

Following this great catch-up it was excellent to take the Treasurer down to Jells Park to view the exciting upgrades currently underway. With more than $30 million being invested in walking path upgrades, the new Monash tennis centre and major improvements to the Jells Park sports fields there is no shortage of activity at Jells Park. The Allan Labor government is proud to be investing the Glen Waverley district, and I look forward to working with the Treasurer to continue this important work.
