Ms HALL (ShortlandOpposition Whip) (16:31): On Saturday, in beautiful Lake Macquarie, in the wonderful electorate of Shortland, on the shores of Lake Macquarie, Swansea Chamber of Commerce held their spring festival. I would like to congratulate Swansea Chamber of Commerce for organising the most spectacular day, both weather-wise and in events. The whole of the community turned out in Swansea. They walked along the foreshores. They sat on the side of the lake and watched the jet boats. They collected information, they attended the market stalls, they watched the entertainment and they enjoyed the food that was organised for the day. Swansea Chamber of Commerce really linked into what the community wanted, what the community needed. No. 1, of course, was a beautiful day and No. 2 was making sure that the information, the events and the day were structured in a way that the whole of the community could enjoy. The strength of this festival was that it brought everyone together. It had the support of all areas of the community. I really believe the Swansea Chamber of Commerce should be congratulated for the fine festival that they organised.
