Jessy was the East Sunbury Cricket Club Captain-Coach and demonstrated strong leadership traits not only on the field but also in the community. Unfortunately, Jessy lost his battle with cancer in late 2018, so naming the pavilion after him means his legacy will remain in our local community forever. Signage for the Pavilion is currently being arranged and once it has been completed, an unveiling ceremony will be held with the Carroll family and the user groups at the reserve. Vale Jessy! Cr Leigh Johnson 0484 240 972 @ A recent visit to our local Neighbourhood House at Sunbury with the Mayor highlighted to me what a terrific sense of place these centres provide in offering activities of interest close to where people live - building community spirit. Sunbury Neighbourhood House and Community Centre is one of many such special places across our City which help people meet new friends, learn life skills and feel a sense of purpose. From playgroups, First Aid courses, crafts, cake decorating, book clubs, belly dancing, yoga, tai chi, tech lessons, art, laughter classes, chess, pilates and dance, they are great places for you to forge a sense of belonging. So do take a look at what your local centre is offering this term and join in! Cr Jack Medcraft 0484 611 902 @ Council is continuing in its call for an extra vehicle lane to be constructed over Deep Creek at Bulla Bridge with gantries on both sides. This would help resolve local traffic congestion issues and prevent unsafe bottlenecks and delays at this crossing for drivers. The Minister has advised that the existing route's steep grades and tight curves would make duplication unlikely to deliver significant time travel benefits to motorists. With more than 22,000 vehicles travelling over Bulla Bridge per day there is already too much traffic on the road. We will continue our calls until this project is funded.
