Out and about in the Swan Valley

The Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, was out and about in Millendon and Henley Brook this week, as part of his regular Coffee with Christian program.

With more than 20 people attending the two events Mr Porter was able to discuss a range of topics affecting local residents in the area.

“Some of the issues raised with me included infrastructure and employment hubs in growth areas such as Ellenbrook, the Coalition’s mobile blackspot programme, internet connections, childcare and environmental issues,” Mr Porter said.

“The Coffee with Christian program is a great way for people to come and have a casual coffee and a chat with me about the issues that really matter to them.

“Doing this program as often as I can provides me with a great resource to represent the views of our community in Canberra and I encourage people to come along to one of my upcoming events.”

While in the area Mr Porter also toured the Olive Farm Winery with Winemaker Anthony Yurisich.

“The Olive Farm Winery and Cheese Barrel Café are great examples of family owned and run businesses in our burgeoning Swan Valley region,” Mr Porter said.

“I really enjoyed meeting with the staff at the winery and explaining some of the ways the Coalition Government is trying to make doing business easier in our community.”

This week’s Coffee with Christian events were held at the Swan Valley Vegetarian Café and Tea Specialists in Millendon and the Cottage Tea Rooms in Henley Brook.
