Goodwood Oval Reference Group

This group met for the first time since last November last night. The delay has been caused by Council's reorganization of committees, a call for new community representatives and legal advice that recommended the advisory groups would better serve the needs of Council and residents than the more formal structure that existed in the past. Unfortunately, this also means that agendas and minutes will no longer be available on the Council website. The group discussed ways that they could keep the community informed on the business discussed. It was decided to activate a blog site in the name of the committee, to use the available notice boards and to also use this blog and that of my colleague, Don Palmer, to let people know what was being discussed and to feed ideas for discussion into the group. When the bog is up and running I will let you know and direct you to the site. At the most recent call for nominations there were insufficient nominations from the community (the area bounded by east Ave, Victoria St and the Seaford train line) from residents. The group still requires 3 more members. If you are interested please let me know and I will send you email onto the relevant person to give you the detail that you will need to nominate.
Discussion revolved around meeting procedure and recording of notes, the upcoming Goodwood Oval-Millswood Lawns Masterplan and the shade-cloth on the tennis courts. It appears that hockey has had a good season, the Goodwood Saints have several teams in the finals and the tennis is booming!Cricket is looking forward to the new season on what they describe as the best facility in Adelaide. Greg Wilson was elected as chairperson.
