Bright Electorate Clubs

I had the opportunity to publicly congratulate Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club on being named South Australian Club of the Year and also put on the record the names of individuals from local surf clubs who received various accolades. 

I was also able to congratulate Brighton Bombers Lacrosse Club on securing the men's and women's senior premierships this year. 

Finally, I gave a special mention to local Hallett Cove resident Sam Bromilow on leading the Flagstaff Hill Football Club C-grade team to a premiership victory.
