We’re back to BRAG

Cockburn Gazette - - LOCAL SPORTS STARS -

THE Beel­iar Res­i­dents Ad­vance­ment Group (BRAG) is of­fi­cially back for the first time in two years.

An an­nual gen­eral meet­ing was held at the Beel­iar Com­mu­nity Cen­tre in late March to fill po­si­tions on the re-formed com­mit­tee.

BRAG pres­i­dent Trace Rad­cliffe said it was an ex­cit­ing time.

“We will get a com­mit­tee meet­ing hap­pen­ing and brain­storm ways of im­prov­ing what we have around us,” she said.

“Our pri­or­ity will be to cre­ate path­ways of com­mu­ni­ca­tion to coun­cil, lo­cal schools, busi­nesses and, most im­por­tantly, the com­mu­nity.

“As a team we can make a huge dif­fer­ence in our sub­urb and if we are all sup­port­ing each other, there is no rea­son that can’t hap­pen.”

Ms Rad­cliffe said support from the com­mu­nity had been im­mense, with a full com­mit­tee of eight and two ad­di­tional support co-or­di­na­tors on board.

“I had no idea how many peo­ple to ex­pect, con­sid­er­ing BRAG closed two years ago due to lack of support,” she said.

“We had about 45 peo­ple come along and that was fan­tas­tic.”
