Thank you Matt Kean, NSW member for Hornsby, for acknowledging the Berowra Apex Club in the NSW State Parliament, recognising the 25th anniversary of the Berowra Woodchop Festival. The club loves running the Woodchop every year, it’s a real Berowra institution now having run for 25 years. We very much appreciate the recognition from Matt, a tribute to all the Apex members who have helped out over the years.
The text of Matt’s speech:
I would like to congratulate Berowra Apex on celebrating the 25th year of the Annual Woodchop Festival. The men behind Berowra Apex are phenomenal and this event gets bigger and better every year. This year, despite the cold and windy conditions they have raised over $10,000 and hundreds of locals in Berowra enjoy the festivities. All the money raised at the festival will go back into local community projects and organisations. You can always count on the volunteers from Berowra Apex for being there to help out whenever there is a BBQ that needs to be cooked or just to lend a hand. These dedicated volunteers are an asset to our community.
