LOCAL SES VOLUNTEERS CELEBRATED THIS WOW DAY

Manly MP, James Griffin has encouraged members of the local community to wear an orange item of clothing this Wednesday 22, to celebrate Wear it Orange Wednesday or WOW Day which pays tribute to the incredible work of our local SES Volunteers.

WOW Day is an important reminder of the sacrifices our SES Volunteers make on behalf of our community, and their commitment to helping others in times of need which we have so often relied on here in the Manly area.   

Mr Griffin said, “In recent years, Manly and its surrounding suburbs has been hit by unprecedented flooding and storms which has had a significant impact on the safety and wellbeing of our residents and business owners. Time and time again, our local SES Volunteers have been on call and ready to respond and aid those who need it most.”

The funding has come from the NSW Government’s Local Small Commitment Allocation (LSCA) Program.

The Program seeks to benefit local communities and councils through a range of capital works, services and programs.

Mr Griffin said, “The funding supports events, supplies and equipment, charitable donations, and playground and park upgrades.

 

LIBERALS MOVE TO STRENGTHEN BAIL LAWS

Liberal Member for Manly, James Griffin says it’s time for the Minns Labor Government to support the Opposition’s efforts to address domestic and family violence and improve women’s safety.

Mr Griffin said, “The NSW Liberals today introduced legislation in the Parliament to progress commonsense proposals to strengthen bail laws in NSW.”

“Since the NSW Labor Government blocked our attempt to strengthen bail laws on Tuesday we have seen more reported cases of domestic violence against women – this is unacceptable.”
