Mr HAYES (Fowler) (13:52): Last Saturday I attended the Miller health and family fun day, conducted by the Liverpool PCYC. A number of local not-for-profit organisations, including the Red Cross, Mission Australia and Men's Shed, as well as the Green Valley Police Station, had information stalls at this free community event. The event was organised to bring families together to be informed about the support and services available and to enjoy a fun-filled afternoon together.

There was face painting, an animal farm, a police mascot and children's crafts activities as well as live music and a free sausage sizzle for the whole family to enjoy. Over 600 people attended, clearly demonstrating a desire to develop and continue the community spirit in that area. Parents want their children to meet and play in a neighbourly environment. These are the values that we grew up with, Mr Deputy Speaker, but with the pace of modern life they are sometimes overlooked.

On behalf of a very grateful community, I would like to thank Sharyn Henry, the secretary of the 2168 Resident Action Group, and the members of the organising committee for this wonderful event. The event was an initiative of the 2168 Resident Action Group, proudly supported by the Liverpool City Council, the Miller Hub and Green Valley Police and funded by the Liverpool Catholic Club. The 2168 Resident Action Group is thoroughly committed to supporting the people in the community of Miller.
