On Thursday, May 29th, 2014, Iain Messer presented his programmes, ‘Your Country’ and ‘Messeround’ from the Hawthorn Aquatic and Leisure Centre.
During the first hour, Iain spoke about the Centre, which recently underwent a $27m refurbishment by the Boroondara Council, and the public opening of the HALC on Saturday, 31st May. The programme, ‘Your Country’ is all about travel – Iain has a lot of knowledge about the subject as he has travelled to many countries around the world. He is also joined by representatives of the ‘East Burwood Travel’ agency. As well as discussion about travel, Iain plays country music throughout the programme.
For the second and third hours of the broadcast, Iain presented ‘Messeround’ on which he spoke to the Mayor of Boroondara, Cr. Coral Ross; Elizabeth Ewers from the Hawthorn Historical Society; HALC Manager, Daniel Kerr; the President of the ‘Waverley Benevolent Society’, Pat Green; and Rachel Dohnt from the HALC.
