Earlier this year I had the pleasure of attending the official opening of the Blue Mountains Croquet Club's new independent lawn at Peter Carroll Field in Leura.
The lawn represents the completion of a very difficult stage for the club, and was based on a 2014 Community Building Partnership Grant.
I commend President Adrian Rowland; former President Barry Moray, who oversaw the building of the lawn; and Vice President John Siccardi, the major driving force behind the project.
I commend Treasurer Gail Siccardi for her financial management and Blue Mountains Cricket Association Chief Executive Officer Ian Strudwick for his cooperation and assistance in sharing the oval and clubhouse.
I also commend Blue Mountains City Council for its support.
I congratulate everyone involved in this fantastic project and club.
