These are exciting times in the City of Marion with work due to begin soon on a range of new sporting and community facilities.

Council has successfully secured a pre-election commitment from the Federal Government of $4 million of funding to redevelop the Edwardstown Soldiers’ Memorial Recreation Ground – an amount that will be matched by Council. Council and members of the site’s committee and sporting clubs worked as a team to prepare an excellent funding submission, and we are very proud of this significant achievement.

These types of developments will redefine the City of Marion and provide modern facilities that can be enjoyed by families for many generations.

It’s hard to believe that the Cove Civic Centre has been open for one year. This state-of-the-art library, community and enterprise centre is a great example of how a new facility can be quickly established by providing the services people want.

The Cove Civic Centre has recorded more than 126,400 visits, becoming a drawcard for local residents and the broader community - as well as hosting events and activities that are supporting businesses in the region. I would like to congratulate the Elected Members and staff who have worked hard to make it a success.

Finally, I would like to add my congratulations to the 33 individuals and groups who recently received an Unsung Heroes Award. All too often, the people who do great work go unrecognised, but the awards place them and their achievements in the spotlight.
