Goodwood Oval Letterbox Drop Today

I have spent this morning letter boxing the Goodwood Oval area. The newly formed Goodwood Oval Reference Group needs more resident representation; at least two new members. If you live close to the oval and are interested in being on the committee than please let me know. It meets every 3 months on the 1st Wednesday starting in March.The letter is as follows;

Goodwood Oval needs local heroes
Dear Resident,
You live in one of the loveliest suburbs in Adelaide. Don’t take what you enjoy for granted. Resident voices are needed to help manage Goodwood Oval with big issues approaching that have the potential to impact on your amenity. Council is continuing to support this organisation that shares its views regarding Goodwood Oval. The recently formed Goodwood Oval Reference Group met twice late in 2013.  The website for this group can be found at  http://goodwoodoval.org. This group has representatives from the hockey, football, tennis and cricket organisations that play on the Goodwood Oval. However, there were insufficient nominations from residents for the group to for fill its function. Greg Willson, Mike Raphael and Glen Watson  were  nominated and selected to be on the group and Greg was then elected as chairperson. What the group now needs is at least 2 more residents.
If this sounds like something you would like to be involved in then please let us know. Meetings are held every 3 months on the 1st Wednesday; the first meeting in 2014 is March 5th at Tennis SA.
The Millswood Complex Improvement Plan (also includes Millswood Lawns) has been nominated as a worthwhile project for this year by Council. Council is presently seeking tenders from qualified organisations to undertake this work. As the recommendations that they may make may have long term impacts in the Goodwood Oval area it is really important to have more residents on the committee.
You can contact Don and Jennie at the email addresses given; Greg’s email is willson.greg@gmail.com  and his phone number is  0403042142 if you wish to contact him to have a chat before nominating.
