Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

The western suburbs of the City of Unley have featured heavily in this round of community grants as evidenced at last nights celebration of the work that our community groups give to our community. While we were celebrating our Mayor took advantage of one of the groups to get practice being a Dad.

Last night Council hosted a number of recipients of the latest round of community grants at a Community Grants Presentation evening. The evening was designed to allow these groups to know in a more personal way how much we appreciate their contribution to the lifestyle of the rate payers of Unley.

It was also a great opportunity for each group to not only let the others how they used the grant they received. It was an opportunity to see what the others are doing. These are great nights ad I appreciate getting to talk to the recipients.

The evening highlighted that this round of grants had a definite western flavour to it, with the following groups receiving grants.

Goody Saints Footy Club

Goody Cricket Club

Forestville Cricket Club

Goodwood Road Traders

The Goody Patch (per the Goody Primary School)

The Goodwood Art house (again per the Goody Primary School)

The Capri Cinema

Unley Amateur Swimming Club

In the meantime the Mayor took advantage of getting a nurse of a doll from South Australian Reborn Doll Guild Inc who also received a grant. As an expectant father this was a good opportunity for some cuddling practice.

The next round of grant applications I believe will close on 30 September. Take advantage of this and reap the benefits that these groups achieved this time round. It may make the difference to your achieving your goals.
