Thank you, Madam Chair. I just rise to speak very briefly about Sunday, Clean Up Australia Day. I had the pleasure of having the LORD MAYOR come out to my ward. We met with the Brandon Road Bushcare Group who actually meet at Brandon Road Park every month, every second Sunday on the month. I'm pleased to say there was not a great deal of rubbish to pick up, which I think is a good thing. I remember I did it last year and the year before and we had a skip-full as well as many bags lying around the skip as well because it didn't all fit into the one skip. This year we just managed to fill one skip only and that was even after sending my husband out in his truck to pick up a few pieces that I'd seen around the streets that were just too big for us. So I think that's a good result.


I think it just goes to show that if you do work in your particular ward, like upgrading parks and stuff like that, I'm a firm believer that you invest in your community and the community will invest back by looking after their infrastructure, which I think is borne out here by the very fact that there was zero rubbish in the park, which I think was an amazing effort. So I just want to say a shout out to all my residents, to thank you for taking care of the ward and thank you for the LORD MAYOR for coming out on a Sunday morning to help us. Thank you.
