To the Editor,
As a lifelong resident of Canowindra, I am fully supportive of formalising the name of Tom Clyburn Oval.
Tom spent his whole life of 80 years, farming and living in Canowindra. His enduring dedication and commitment to the community and sport in Canowindra, particularly rugby league, is a legacy that should be recognised and memorialised. His many achievements included, among others, life membership of the following: Canowindra Rugby League Club, Group 11 Rugby League Club, Group 11 Referees Association, Canowindra Bowling Club and Canowindra Jockey Club.
Tom was a great friend who was always the first to lend a helping hand to those in need. Tom was a local legend and I cannot think of a better way to acknowledge his lifelong service and contribution to our town.
Sincerely, Bunda Breen
