Mr J BULL (Sunbury) (14:07:25): The Sunbury Blue Light committee celebrated 40 years of serving the Sunbury community on Friday, 22 February, with a massive birthday disco with over 400 attendees at the Sunbury Memorial Hall.

The Sunbury Blue Light committee is made up of dedicated volunteers and Victoria Police members who work hard to create a safe and fun environment for Sunbury’s kids to have a great time and meet police officers and people from other emergency services.

Blue Light committees provide education; help with crime reduction, life skills and coaching; and host cultural, social and sporting programs for young people aged between five and 18 years. Sunbury Blue Light is one of the oldest continual discos in Victoria.

It was first established in 1979 and has been serving my community ever since.

Mr Pearson: How many Blue Lights did you go to?

Mr J BULL: I did get to a couple, the member for Essendon, I have to say.

Congratulations to committee members Rose, Kim, Ben, Kate, Carlie, Rohan and Jarrod as well as— (Time expired)
