Mark Webber to be honoured with civic reception

By Holden Caulfield 19 March 2010 26

Queanbeyan City Council has managed to secure Mark Webber during his busy lead-in to the Australian Grand Prix for a civic reception this coming Monday (22 March).

A motorcade will travel down Crawford Street at 12:30pm before a reception is held at Council Chambers. Queanbeyan Mayor Cr Tim Overall has invited the public to come along to support Mark and says, “Queanbeyan is proud of all of its sporting stars and is honoured to have such high-quality sports people representing it on all levels.

“The people of Queanbeyan have followed Mark’s career closely and the town celebrated as one when he crossed the finish line in Germany to record his first Grand Prix victory.”

I went and it was fantastic. Mark is a top bloke. Happy to sign autographs and take photos.

Davo you’ll be pleased to know that Stanhope sent his apologies and didn’t attend today’s function. It was a pretty low key and humble affir today. Much like Webber himself really, he spoke really well and as corny as it is to say, we can be proud to call him an Aussie.

A few pics sent off to RA, and hopefully they’ll be added soon.

Um, well… Good on struggletown for honouring their own, just don’t let Standope have anything to do with it, or before we know it there will be another statue/art work adorning Canberra.

What proof do you need? You want him to knock on your door?

Funny that you should be demanding proof of… something (I haven’t quite worked out what yet) after your bizarre little conspiratorial outburst in #9.
