Mrs Clarke made the announcement alongside Labor deputy opposition leader Roger Cook at Lake Clifton on February 12.
Mrs Clarke said Labor would commit $275,000 to upgrade the Preston Beach Community Hall and $50,000 to improve roadworks at the Herron-Lake Clifton Fire Shed if elected at the State election.

Mr Cook said the pledge demonstrated Labor had not forgotten about residents living in and around the Preston Beach and Lake Clifton area.
