A message to all of our friends and supporters

It has been nine, long and arduous months of campaigning to retain the historic Maurice Kirby Velodrome from destruction at hands of the City of Greater Dandenong. Never before has our community rose to an injustice fraught with the knowledge the community will never be listened to but, despite this injustice we all took up the challenge against the City of Greater Dandenong and fought until the very end.

In the process we were fortunate enough to rediscover and retell the humble story of a Noble Park and Melbourne identity, that was Maurice Kirby and his passion for not only cycling and sports but also his ability to bring issues to the forefront of public discussion.


A heartfelt thank you to Noble Park locals who took this photograph then sent it to us, eg: they can remove a velodrome but they will never remove our dreams ❤️❤️❤️

As this campaign draws to a close, we thank each and every one of you for persisting against the bias that was glaringly obvious to anyone that took notice. All those long emails and phone calls to council and our elected representatives, your attendance at council meetings were not for nothing.

Out of this we have reformed the old Noble Park Dandenong Cycling Club Inc. and we will continue to carry on Maurice Kirby’s legacy.

Join the club: http://nobleparkdandenong.cc/membership/

We thank each and every one of you again for fighting so incredibly hard to save the Maurice Kirby velodrome. The Noble Park community has spoken and the fight for justice will have no expiration date!
