State Labor Member for Narre Warren South Judith Graley was made an honorary member of the Hampton Park Bowls Club last week.

At a special afternoon tea organised by the Hampton Park Bowls Club Ms Graley was presented with a framed club shirt.

Ms Graley said she was deeply touched and honoured to be made part of a club she has grown to love during her time as the local Member of Parliament.

“It has truly been a great pleasure and privilege to work with the wonderful men and women of the Hampton Park Bowls Club,”

“Their commitment to supporting the local community and to raising breast cancer awareness has been second to none,”

“I have taken such joy from spending time with the members of this outstanding club and I will forever treasure my lovely club shirt,”  

“I hope to be hitting the greens with the Hampton Park Bowls Club for many years to come.”

Gwen Clough, Committee Member of the Hampton Park Bowls Club said the club had decided to make Judith an honorary member in recognition for all the support she had given the club.

“Ever since Judith first assisted our club in hosting an Australia Day event just after she was first elected, she has always been there for us,”

“Whether it is helping to host our pink ribbon breakfasts or advocating on behalf of the club Judith is always happy to lend a hand,”

“The framed shirt is just a little token of our appreciation for everything she has done for our club over the years.”
