New courts are a hit

Monday, 28 May 2018

In an exciting development for tennis players in Lilydale, a project to resurface two tennis courts at the Lilydale Tennis Club has recently been completed.

$20,000 in funding from the Turnbull Government’s Stronger Communities Programme, which was matched by the Club, ensures that all of the Club’s courts are of a similar standard. Lilydale Tennis Club now has the capacity to host regional tournaments.

At the 2016 Federal election I promised improved mobile coverage for Kalorama, Mt Evelyn and Chum Creek.

On 5th April 2018 it was announced that the Turnbull Government’s Mobile Black Spot Programme will fund mobile phone towers in each of these towns.

Locals and visitors in Steels Creek, Reefton and McMahons Creek are benefiting from the installation of new mobile phone towers which are part of the Turnbull Government’s $220 million Mobile Black Spot Programme.

Pre-schoolers in Lilydale are set for a science and maths skills boost as part of a new Federal Government programme.

Backed by $6 million from the Turnbull Government and developed by the University of Canberra, the Early Learning STEM Australia (ELSA) pilot will run at the Lilydale Lakeside Children’s Centre.

The Turnbull Government will provide two new ground-breaking flu vaccines to over three million Australians aged 65 years and over - free of charge.

This is a direct response to last year’s horrific flu season, which had a devastating impact around the world, and aimed squarely at saving lives. More than 90 per cent of the 1,100 flu related deaths in 2017 were by people aged over 65 years of age.
