BAYSWATER Morley Youth Club needs someone to step into the breach, following the departure of its long-serving caretaker.

Based at Houghton Park, the club is host to Bayswater Morley and Eastern Monarchs Softball Club, Bayswater Morley Junior Football Club and the Central Crocs Masters Football Club.

“Our current caretaker, who has been in the role for the past 12 years, is moving on to pursue personal interests and will be greatly missed for his dedication to the club,” spokeswoman Jo-Anne Malkovic said.

“We’re looking for any interested community member to possibly take on the caretaker role in return for honorary club membership and a small financial honorarium.

“It would ideally suit a retired person living in the area or any students in sport or business administration looking for some practical hands-on experience.”

The caretaker facilitates the use of the local hall and ground amenities between the sporting groups, as well as coordinating hall hire for the public.

The Cities of Bayswater and Swan have a commitment to helping local organisations through Blue Ribbon Clubs, an incentive-based accreditation scheme that helps local clubs achieve long-term success.

“Various sporting groups have been based at Houghton Park for the past 50 years and a caretaker will greatly assist the Bayswater Morley Youth Club in continuing to promote a healthy lifestyle while playing a major role in coordinating activities that take place there,” Bayswater Mayor Terry Kenyon said.

“Local sporting clubs are an integral part of our society, helping to unite the community, and are a fun, healthy way for people to build social skills and establish lifelong friendships.”

City of Bayswater

The City of Bayswater is a local government area in the inner north-eastern suburbs of the West Australian capital city of Perth, about 9km north-east of Perth's CBD, and includes the suburbs of Bayswater, Beford, Embleton, Maylands, Morley and Noranda and parts of Mount Lawley and Dianella. It covers an area of 32.8 square kilometres and has a population of 55,801.

Originally, the Bayswater Road District was created in 1897 and, in 1961, it became a shire before attaining City status in 1983. The City of Bayswater is divided into four wards and represented by 11 councillors with the Mayor elected from among the councillors.

Recent developments in the City of Bayswater include the opening of the Galleria shopping centre in 1994, on the site of the old Boans building that burnt down in 1986. Morley is now the largest commercial district outside of Perth and Fremantle and further growth is expected.
