alex webb memorial track opens

Tuesday saw the official opening of the Alex Webb Fun and Fitness Park in Monbulk. Alex was tragically killed riding his BMX bike back in July 2008. Alex was a much loved member of the local community and a keen soccer player. Early this year I was humbled to be able to assist the family with a memorial garden and seat installation in Baynes Park Reserve, Alex’s favourite local soccer ground.

Today Alex’s parents, Leo and Karen thanked the community for their support, particularly Ray Yates, principal of Monbulk Primary School.

The Fun and Fitness Park consists of fitness equipment as well as a running trail, already popular with children attending the opening.

It is a fitting tribute to a boy who was full of fun, always fit and passionate about sport. I am sure it will be a much loved and well used community facility.
