Neil Angus MP welcomes the official opening of the Forest Hill Police Station PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 06 April 2016 00:00

State Member for Forest Hill, Neil Angus MP today welcomed the official opening of the 24-hour Forest Hill Police Station at 469 Springvale Road, Forest Hill.

“It was terrific to finally be able to attend the official opening of the $12 million Forest Hill Police Station which was fully funded by the previous Victorian Government,” Neil Angus said.

“Having campaigned at the 2010 election for the establishment of a police station in Forest Hill and subsequently turning the first sod on the site with the then Police Minister, today is a great day seeing the project fully completed.

“I am also very proud to say the former Government listened to the local community and delivered on its commitment to build a state-of-the-art police station in Forest Hill, as part of its community safety agenda.

“The Forest Hill Police Station now operates as the Eastern Divisional Headquarters and is a base for over 80 police officers.  It provides services to the wider Whitehorse community and neighbouring municipalities.

”Community safety continues to be a big concern to many of my local residents and it is reassuring to know that these new premises will better enable the Victoria Police to respond to and tackle local crime.

Residents can contact the new Forest Hill Police Station by calling (03) 8847 3600.

Monday, 14 September 2015 00:00

Shadow Minister for Young Victorians and Deputy Leader of The Nationals Steph Ryan recently dropped into the Youth Education Support op-shop at Forest Hill.

Ms Ryan joined the Member for Forest Hill, Neil Angus, last week in visiting with staff to learn more about the shop’s important work.

“All the profit from sales goes directly towards helping disadvantaged young people gain an education,” Ms Ryan said.

“I was very impressed by the dedication of the volunteers who give of their time so that young people have the best possible opportunity to access education.”

Member for Forest Hill Neil Angus said it was a fantastic opportunity to show Ms Ryan such a wonderful local voluntary organisation. Mr Angus, in his role as the Member for Forest Hill, has had the opportunity to visit the premises on many occasions and view the facilities and activities being conducted.

Youth Education Support Inc is chaired by local campaigner for disadvantaged youth, Julia Mosley and operates with a volunteer board of current or retired professionals, as well as a Sponsorship Panel.

The group is registered by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits commission and is a member of Our Community Matters, Pilch Connect and Fundraising Institute of Australia.

Ms Ryan said she continued to be inspired by the selfless volunteers she met daily across Victoria.

Mr Angus said that the level of commitment shown by the more than sixty local volunteers who assist this organisation was a great example to the community.

Apply now for VicHealth’s Active Club Grants PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 31 August 2015 12:26

Neil Angus MP, State Member for Forest Hill today encouraged eligible sports and active recreation clubs in the Forest Hill electorate to apply for VicHealth grants of up to $10,000, to increase the number of people participating at their clubs, contributing to healthier Victorian communities.

Applications for the first round of VicHealth Active Club Grants are open and can be submitted until 18 September 2015.

“Each year, Active Club Grants support more Victorians to become active,” Mr Angus said.

“Regular physical activity is a key factor in promoting good health and preventing chronic disease. These grants give clubs the opportunity to apply for funding to purchase much needed core equipment and injury prevention items.

“As a former VicHealth Board Member, I encourage local sports organisations to apply for these very beneficial grants,” Mr Angus said.

VicHealth CEO Jerril Rechter said VicHealth had provided small grants to more than 10,000 community sport and active recreation clubs and organisations across Victoria for over 27 years.

“These grants help people in some of our most disadvantaged communities join their local sporting clubs. They also provide critical equipment to help those who would otherwise not be able to participate in sport; for instance, clubs can apply for funding for modified equipment for people with disabilities such as bell balls, bowling arms or portable ramps.

”This year’s Active Club Grants have two grant types clubs can apply for. We are offering clubs the option to apply for the traditional grant of up to $3,000 or a larger grant of up to $10,000 for core equipment that will help increase or maintain participation through their club.

“We are offering up to 10 of these larger grants per round for clubs that can make a big impact and enable a greater number of Victorians to start or continue being physically active.

“This may include large clubs with a high number of teams, clubs that are seeking to implement new programs and activities to increase participation, clubs trying to reach new community members, or clubs in areas experiencing significant population growth,” Ms Rechter said. 
 
For further information or to apply for this grant online, visit

Round 1 – opens Monday 17 August 2015 and closes Friday 18 September 2015
Round 2 – opens Monday 1 February 2016 and closes Friday 4 March 2016 

 
Neil Angus MP welcomes the Forest Hill Police Station opening its doors for business PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 12 August 2015 11:01


“I am delighted that the $12 million Forest Hill Police Station, fully funded by the previous Victorian Government, will open for business today,” Neil Angus said.

“I am also very proud to say the former Government listened to the local community and delivered on its commitment to build a police station in Forest Hill, as part of its community safety agenda.

“Over the last four years, local residents have reiterated to me their concerns over community safety and I know the new station will be well received in the local area.

“By providing a 24-hour presence in Forest Hill, Victoria Police will be better placed to reduce crime locally and emergency response times to incidents will improve, given the close proximity of the station.

“I look forward to the new station servicing the law and order needs of the Forest Hill community and beyond, including the wider Whitehorse municipality.

Residents can contact the new Forest Hill Police Station by calling (03) 8847 3600.
