The Pat Rogan Walkway Is Confirmed By Council
The City of Canterbury Bankstown has resolved to rename the Salt Pan Creek Walkway, the Pat Rogan Walkway, in honour of Mr Patrick Rogan, a former State Member for East Hills. Mr Rogan was a significant member of the community and played a vital role in public matters and success of many clubs and community organisations in NSW.
Mr Rogan was a major contributor to the local community both during his time as the state member for East Hills, being a strong advocate for local infrastructure as well as a supporter and patron of many local clubs and groups. He was a passionate supporter of the environment, and thus the naming of this walkway, which winds it’s way through semi-urban wetlands and mangrove forests is a wonderful testament to this passion.
Serving as a Board member of the Revesby Workers’ Club (1995-2010), and eventually Club President (2008-2010), Mr Rogan also served as a very effective Chairman of ClubsNSW (1999-2004) and was posthumously awarded an OAM in 2016.
This recognition of Pat Rogan is very deserving. The re-naming of the walkway is set to take place 11am, Tuesday 17 July 2018 at Cutting Reserve, Davies Road, Padstow.
