Clean Up Australia Day
MS LAWDER (Brindabella) (5.41): Last night in this place I spoke about a Clean Up Australia Day event down at Lake Tuggeranong, but on Sunday I also had a Clean Up Australia Day event at Fadden pond, not far from where I live, and a number of locals came along to help me. About 15 people came along, and it was a great event. Fadden pond has some grasslands around it, a children's playground, a bridge and across Nicklin Crescent are tennis courts with a small car park. Traditionally, the tennis courts get quite a bit of rubbish dropped around them, so members of the tennis club, through Max Lack the secretary, also came down to help with the clean-up activity. It was quite a hot afternoon on Sunday, so it was great to see that the people who came down had their sunscreen and their hats on. There were some family groups there as well as people who had been there last year and the year before for the clean-up at Fadden pond as well. It was a really good event.
I spoke yesterday also in the adjournment speech about the origins of Clean Up Australia Day and Ian Kiernan and that it is in its 26th year this year. I express my appreciation to those members of the local community who came along. They will get their little certificates in the mail for their participation, and I encourage them to come again next year.
