Pollie Pedal ends at Manly

On April 10, Josh completed the nine day Pollie Pedal which began on the Gold Coast. Joining Tony Abbott for the 900 km plus ride was a wonderful opportunity to visit a number of regional communities including Kyogle, Grafton, Coffs Harbour, Dorrigo, Armidale, Walcha and Cessnock and listen to the issues of interest to them.

An annual event for the last thirteen years, this charity bike ride raises money to support the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health. The money raised will fund clinical outreach positions for healthcare professionals to work in rural and remote aboriginal communities in western NSW and the Northern Territory. 

The Pollie Pedal bike ride has raised more than one million dollars since Tony Abbott launched the charity fundraiser in 1997. It is hoped that this year’s event will raise in excess of $200,000.

Josh is pictured here riding with his colleagues the member for Fadden, Stuart Robert, and Tony Abbott.

 


30 Year Steel Club Luncheon

On April 1, Josh was guest speaker at 30 Year Steel Club’s luncheon at the Elgin Hotel, Hawthorn. The Club was established by former executives of the steel industry who come together regularly to discuss national issues. Among the topics covered by Josh was the impact the carbon tax would have on the steel industry. Josh is pictured here with club members Barry Lawry, John Phillips, Scott Kerr, Richard Carter and Ken Dawborn.


Save Balwyn Post Office!

On April 1, Josh joined the Hon Robert Clark, State Member for Box Hill, Cr Nicholas Tragas, Mayor of Boroondara, Cr Dick Menting, Maling Ward, Ian Bird, President of the Balwyn Traders Association, and other local traders to launch a petition to re-establish the Balwyn Post Office.

The recent closure of the Balwyn Post Office has caused significant inconvenience to many in the community as well as causing economic loss to the Whitehorse Road shopping strip. If you would like to see the re-establishment of the Balwyn Post Office please sign the petition that Josh will present to the Federal Parliament. The petition asks the House to urge the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister on Digital Productivity to consult with the board of Australia Post about re‐establishing a post office in Balwyn.

For more information on the closure of the Balwyn Post Office and this petition please contact the office of Josh Frydenberg MP on 9882 3677 or click here.
