Peel Community Legal Services held an Open Day on Saturday 8th May to celebrate their move to new premises on Pinjarra Road and the 20th year anniversary of providing free legal advice and advocacy to low income and vulnerable members of the Peel community.
David Templeman MLA and Minister for Tourism; Culture and the Arts; Heritage and Leader of the House made an opening address and spoke of the value of the service to the Peel region since its establishment in 2001 and his personal knowledge of the positive impact Peel Community Legal Services has had on people’s lives.
Minister Templeman thanked the staff and volunteers for their hard work and commitment to social justice and the provision of legal services to those in need of advice and wished the organisation well for the next 20 years.
Robyn Clarke MLA Murray Wellington. Lisa Munday MLA Dawesville were also in attendance to show their support and the City of Mandurah were represented by councillor Merv Darcy.
Frederick Irwin Anglican School Jazz band conducted by Tim Newhouse provided the entertainment and were appreciated by all in attendance.
The Lions Club Baldivis provided the BBQ and labour for a sausage sizzle and drinks that was provided to guests.
The premises were open to the public to look through and staff were on hand to answer any questions about the services provided and how PCLS might be able to assist.
The event was a great success and Peel Community Legal Services are appreciative of the assistance and support demonstrated by those who provided labour, equipment and food and who showed interest by attending the event.
