I recently popped into Eastern Suburbs Soccer Club. to check out the club’s impressive new LED field lights, purchased thanks to a Brisbane City Council’s Building Stronger Communities Grant. 💡
Chatting with Club President Glen Brown and Vice President Anna Giuffrida, I learned Easts is regarded as one of the leading female football clubs in Queensland with 250+ players aged from 4 to mid-40s! ⚽️⚽️⚽️
With the FIFA Women’s World Cup coming to Australia and New Zealand in 2023 I can only expect these numbers to grow and I can’t wait to see the exciting developments at the Club in the lead up to its 100th Anniversary!

I have been working with Hannah Clarke’s family to find a way to pay tribute to her memory.
Today I moved to rename a section of the Bill Hewitt Reserve at Camp Hill in honour of Hannah and her children Aaliyah, Laianah and Trey.
A dedicated section of this park will be a place of remembrance and reflection for our community.
It will also remind us why we must continue to work together to end domestic and family violence.
I will share more information about Hannah's Place within Bill Hewitt Reserve in coming weeks.
