Mayor of Brighton
2009 has begun and it looks like this year will be another exciting one for our community.
Brighton has much on the drawing board and the signs are positive that this year will be another year of significant achievement.
YOGI’S Boxing Classes have begun at the Poultry Shed Pavilion (new shed just past the Pontville cricket and footy ovals). The classes train four nights a week (Mondays to Thursdays), from 6pm – 7.30pm with children from 10 years old and upwards invited to join. Younger children (10-16) can attend earlier classes on these days from 5-6pm.
HOBART United Football Club, which is an incorporated not-for-profit organisation founded seven years ago, is going from strength to strength.
This year the club will field a number of teams: men’s div 1, men’s div 1 reserve, women’s div 2, boys under-13s [existing] and new in 2009 women’s div 1, youth under-18s and girls under-14s. Through football, renowned as ‘the world game’ (more commonly known as soccer), the club promotes friendship and builds racial harmony, peace and social integration across communities within Hobart and Brighton areas.
