Have your say at Portarlington community meeting

Earlier this year I launched a petition for a new pool for the North Bellarine, an issue which has been completely ignored by federal and state Labor MPs.

With the North Bellarine now part of the Corangamite electorate, I have been listening loud and clear to the community on the need for a major swimming pool complex for the North Bellarine.

With the aquatic and sports centre at Ocean Grove at capacity and the pool at Portarlington closed, north Bellarine residents have limited access to what is essential community infrastructure.

Hundreds of people have signed the petition at sarahhenderson.com.au/petitions showing there is an enormous amount of community support for a new swimming pool.

I am holding a community meeting in Portarlington at Parkview Room, Parks Hall, 57 Newcombe Street, on Friday 15 March from 6:00-7:00pm.

This is a very important opportunity for local residents to provide feedback on their support for a new pool and demonstrate that “people power” can make a real difference.

All are welcome.
