Under the 2020 Tasmanian Government’s Ticket to Play program, parents of eligible children can now apply for two vouchers of up to $I00 each to go towards the cost of sporting club membership.
THE Tasmanian Government is urging Brighton Municipality parents and carers to take part in its Ticket to Play sports voucher program. After a successful pilot program in 2019 and early in 2020, the Tasmanian Government has committed $1 million a year to Ticket to Play for a further four years.
Minister for Sport Jane Howlett said cost was one of the major barriers to children participating in organised sport.
The Club’s AGM elected Doug Holloway, president; Elizabeth Downward, secretary; Tony Bartninkaitis, treasurer; Judy Holloway, David Holmes, Glenda Rubock, Louise Cooper, Simon Hartgrove, as board members. Keith Roberts has since re-joined the board.
THE Brighton Bowls & Community Club’s AGM was a fitting opportunity for members to recognise the outstanding achievement of the Division 5 ladies team.
Team members proudly received their Division 5 premiership medallions, Bowls Tasmania South perpetual trophy and premiership plaque from retiring president, Van Ransley, to acknowledge their success which was the Club’s only premiership for the season. As a result of the win, the team has been promoted to Division 4 for the coming season.
Special congratulations on the success of new bowlers Pat Seabourne in her first year and Elizabeth Downward in just her second.
In welcoming the funding and the start of works, Mayor Foster said the redevelopment would provide modern, upgraded facilities for the Brighton Football and Cricket Clubs, and the wider community.
WORKS are about to start for the redevelopment of the Brighton Regional Sports Centre to create a new and improved sporting facility at Pontville.
Brighton Mayor Tony Foster was recently joined by council members and Liberal Senator for Tasmania Claire Chandler to officially break ground on the redevelopment.
Senator Chandler said the new facility would create a revitalised multi-purpose facility to cater for the needs of local sports clubs and the community and will provide a significant economic boost for the Brighton municipality and surrounding regions.
MOST adults will agree that children between five and seven years are pretty irresistible. It’s that wonderful age when kids wriggle and skip when they’re happy, when they stare at you with huge wondrous eyes and a grin full of teeny-tiny teeth. For this age group, the world is exciting and everything new is to be explored and enjoyed. Story-telling and singing is a normal part of everyday life; and (let’s face it, some pretty dodgy) craft-work is an immense source of pride.
