achievement despite personal barriers, presentation of the Canberra Institute of Technology vocational award, and the presentation of the Janice Battisson memorial awards for young pianists in the Canberra region.

In the local and community services sector, their activity includes carrying out gardening and grounds maintenance at the Ambara Court aged living facility, participating in working bees, and supporting Camp Quality. This is, of course, in addition to the many international and other local programs.

However, it is the local people, turning up every week, running those stalls at Cooleman Court, directing traffic at the sporting events and tirelessly working for nothing more than doing the right thing, that I am here to recognise today. I would like to acknowledge the members of the club, most of whom I have met over the years, and many of whom, along with their partners, have become friends. Sadly, some, I note, are no longer with us.

I would like to acknowledge the president, Catherine Ross, and past and present members, including Richard Gilbert, John Green, Les Sutton, Peter Dinn, Greg Fisher, Tony Maple, Mal Ferguson, John Laslett, Lionel Barrett, Janice Paull, Lionel Wood, Graham Giles, Ash Pagett, John Sykes, Margaret McIver, Lindsay Jolley, Ronit Goldberger, Jeanette Jolley, Jan MacNutt, Terry Mernagh, David Edwards, Keith Richmond, Warwick Elliott, Ken Riordan, John Shinerock, Mark Spill, Jack White, Anne Lomax, John Gibson, John Kennedy; Tim Dalton, Claude Hastir, Robert Altamore, Lindy Schaefer; Gordon Shaw, Prasan Sharp, the late Jim Benson, Annemarie Driver, Simon Felgate, Roy Pubal, Damien Farrell, Denis Cairnduff, Barry Starr, Hugh Taylor, Jan Adams, John Bilderbeek, Julian Flynn, Lisa Hawkridge, Graeme Ireland, John Morgan, Julie O’Conor, Ray Swift, Warren Turton, Trent Bowen, Janet Duff, Mary Flanagan, Fiona Hurley, Garth Legatt, Gail Freeman, Barry Lambert, Christine Pilgrim, and Ian Watson Smith.

If I have missed anyone, I certainly apologise. I again say: well done to the Rotary Club of Canberra—Weston Creek, a great team who provide a great service to our community.

Florey Neighbourhood Watch

MS CHEYNE (Ginninderra) (6.46): I rise today to speak briefly about the recent establishment of Florey Neighbourhood Watch and what a fantastic job they have done in just a few months in terms of bringing the community together. It is very ably led by Sharon, a Florey resident of course, and supported by an ever-growing band of volunteers.

Not only has Sharon been leading some fantastic Florey community catch-ups on Tuesday mornings once a month at Cafe Bolivar at the Florey shops; she has also been hosting regular meetings for the community to share news and information about Florey and how to stay safe. On top of that, in just a few short months she has also managed to pull together a fantastic clean-up Florey day, which occurred on 1 September.
