For those of you currently living in the Banyule City Council area – you may already be aware that the Banyule City Council elections will be held on Saturday 24th October 2020.
All of Watsonia Heights FC’s grounds (Elder Street Reserve, Gabonia Avenue Reserve and Greensborough Secondary College) are located in the Banyule City Council Ward of Bakewell.
For all members and supporters currently residing in the Bakewell Ward I’d like to bring your attention to a gentleman that will contest for a Councillor position in October – Mr Brian Grace.
Brian has lived in Greensborough for 42 years and has been a member of local community clubs, school councils and in 2020 he was awarded a Volunteer award in the Jaga Jaga awards.
Brian is also the man behind the Facebook page – “Good Governance Banyule”.
Good Governance Banyule has supported our club in the past – when Banyule City Council prevented us from using the at Elder Street in October/November 2018 to host our Miniroos program.
Brian is keen to join us and attend our home matches as part of his plan to get to know members of our community and our club. Brian is a foundation member of Melbourne City FC, of which Watsonia Heights FC are “City Club” members. Brian is aware of our needs as a club and is keen to help develop our great club.
We can only thank all of the staff at Banyule City Council for their hard work over the last few years where they have assisted us with the upgrade of both of our club rooms, the installation of high quality floodlights at Elder Street and the soon to be installed solar panels at our Elder Street club rooms.
To those of you who reside in the Bakewell Ward, could we ask you all to give some consideration in casting a vote for Brian Grace in this year’s Council elections as our continued support and friendship is continued, with a man that has the same passion for our great game as we do.
