Servants Community Housing 30th birthday

It was great to catch up with Servants Community Housing Inc CEO, Matt Maudlin and his team and many well wishers on 28 May for Servants' 30th birthday celebrations. Servants  has cared for some of the Kooyong community’s most vulnerable members for 30 years, from its base in Hawthorn and more recently from its two facilities in Kew. I have been honoured to support Servants in the invaluable work they do in our community for many years. In 2012, I established the Kooyong Christmas Giving Tree, which has collected thousands of dollars in money and in-kind donations to extend the festivity of the Christmas season to Servants’ residents.

Saturday Sport in Kew and Camberwell

Like many Kooyong constituents, Josh spent Saturday afternoon attending local community sporting events.  Being the proud patron of the Old Xaverians Soccer Club, it was good to see a strong turnout Club's Family and Sponsor Day.  Well done to Adrian Gervasoni and his committee on a great event at Hay's Paddock. Next stop was to the Camberwell Hockey Club, where a large group were assembled to watch both men's and women's matches on the hockey pitch. Congratulations to John Unkles and his committee on the success of the club. 

Another exciting day out and about in Kooyong

Today it was great to join a number of local Liberals on a street walk and meet local residents at the Camberwell Market and the Camberwell Junction shopping precinct and the historically significant Maling Road in Canterbury.  During my visit to Camberwell I dropped into Grill'd and bought a hamburger to participate in a great initiative which sees $5 from every Grill'd burger sold go to Camcare to support their work in the local community.

Annual Old Scotch Collegians Dinner

On 27 May, I attended the Old Scotch Collegians Association Annual Dinner in Hawthorn. 360 Old Boys and friends of Scotch College attended the dinner. The evening featured school songs, a presentation by the Principal, Mr Tom Batty, and an address by the Governor of Victoria, Her Excellency the Hon Linda Dessau AM – reflecting on her appointment as Victoria’s first female Governor. 

Visit to Koonung Secondary College

It great to visit Koonung Secondary College in Mont Albert North, joined by Liberal candidate for Chisholm, Julia Banks.

Julia and I met with student leaders, including Koonung’s school captains and co-chairs of the student representative council. The students shared their views about the upcoming election and shared their aspirations for tertiary education and their future careers.

We also toured the site of the school's exciting new science and food technology classrooms, led by Principal Peter Wright.

Celebrating Asaleo Care's investment in local manufacturing

It was an honour to speak at an event to mark Asaleo Care's recent $65 million investment in upgrading its advanced manufacturing centre in Box Hill. Asaleo Care is a leading personal care and hygiene company, with a portfolio of landmark brands including Sorbent, Handee and Libra.

Asaleo Care's Box Hill site has been manufacturing products locally since the early 1960s. The plant's recent multi-million dollar capital upgrade has increased capacity and reduced the cost base of operations through innovative product flow, new machinery and reduced labour requirements.

I was taken on a tour of this impressive facility, joined by federal Liberal candidate for Chisholm, Julia Banks, State Member Burwood, Graham Watt MP and Mayor of Whitehorse, Cr Philip Daw, before addressing management and employees of Asaleo.

Kew Rovers Annual Presidents' Breakfast

It was "Game On" at the Kew Rovers Annual President's Breakfast 2016 this morning.  A strong team comprising Collingwood footy legends Brian Taylor and Peter Daicos, with another legend, ex-Tiger and great Tony Free as Master of Ceremonies was a winning combination. President Anthony Kift and his committee hosted a wonderful event, continuing the annual tradition with a fabulous morning's entertainment and tales from one of footy's greatest eras.  Tim Smith, State Member for Kew and I agreed the breakfast was a great way to kick off the day!

Aged Care Forum at Hedley Sutton

Senior Kooyong residents of Baptcare's Hedley Sutton posed many thoughtful questions to Josh at the Aged Care Forum held last week where the Labor and Green candidates were also present. Josh was delighted to address such an engaged group of residents. Issues raised included Coalition policy for services to enable older people to remain in their own homes for longer, the Budget allocation of $10.6 billion in aged care this year, and the valuable contribution of aged care workers. Residents were interested to understand the benefits to their age group of the $20 billion Medical Research Future Fund, which will provide a sustainable source of funding for vital medical research over the medium to longer term for diseases like Alzheimer's.  

Visit to Kalgoorlie, Collie, Derby and Broome in Western Australia

On 23 May 2016, I was delighted to visit Kalgoorlie and Collie with Rick Wilson MP, Member for O’Connor. After an interview on ABC Goldfields with Bec Curtin, we had a meeting with the Goldfields Chamber of Minerals and Energy to discuss the significance of the resources sector to this important mining region. We then visited Newland Associates, who use advanced technology to develop world-leading mining equipment that is exported to global markets. We then travelled to Collie on the edge of Rick’s electorate, where we discussed local opportunities with the Collie Council, and met with resources stakeholders to talk about the impact of the coal sector on the local economy. 
On 24 May 2016, I travelled further north to visit Derby and Broome with Melissa Price MP, Member for Durack. We first met with the Shire of Derby, including Shire President Elsia Archer, to discuss local priorities, tourism and the Defence White Paper’s announced upgrades to RAAF Base Curtin in Derby. We toured the Derby Wharf, before being hosted for lunch by the Winun Ngari Aboriginal Corporation. We travelled back to Broome, where we met with local business leaders and tourism operators to discuss the opportunities for developing Broome and the West Kimberley, with a focus on the important tourism sector. We also had a productive meeting with the Shire of Broome about the Government’s northern Australia agenda and options to bring more tourists to Broome.

More than 70 Australian and international guests, including Jami Attenberg, Elana Sztokman, Alan Gold and Chief Scientist Alan Finkel are exploring a range of genres and subjects in the 2016 festival.

I launched the festival at its opening night on 21 May, alongside readings by seven festival writers and a performance by Lior.
