Over the last few month's a small team consisting of our Building Committee Chair (Chris Harper), Fundraising Committee Chair (Ivan St Clair), Honorary Legal Advisor (Tony Greenaway - Partner at Gadens Lawyers) and myself have been working on the transfer of land from the Borough of Queenscliffe.
Although the 'good news' came through back in April / May, it has taken quite some time and a lot of effort to ensure that we will have something that will last for many generations and not lead to any issues for our members in the future.
I am hoping that we will have a major announcement on this important matter at our Inaugural Season Opening function, to be held at the Monahan Centre Queenscliff on the evening of Saturday 21 November. See link below for more information on this function.
