DOUBLE BAY

Oroton, Double Bay

Present Australians with a problem and it’s not long till they start working to solve it, and at the same time joking about it! Which explains the above image of Double Bay auctioneer Damien Cooley leaving Kiaora Place after having successfully auctioned rolls of toilet paper to shoppers leaving Woolworths in Double Bay. Damien sold them for $1,000 and also donated the same amount himself, and was able to to donate $2,000 to charity 'Kids Giving Back'. This ranks alongside the conversation overheard in a nearby chemist “Do you have anything that kills Coronavirus?” “Ammonia Cleaner” was the reply. To which the retort was “Sorry, I thought you worked here.” None of this is to understate the seriousness of Coronavirus, or the impact it will have on the community and the economy. An impact that has already closed sporting events and will continue to be felt for months to come. An impact that will change the way that countries, worldwide, start to view strategic relationships, “just in time” stock management, and their thoughts about Globalisation. The community too has surprised itself by witnessing the antics of a few 'toilet roll' hoarders and wondered at just what they were thinking. Fortunately, they are a small minority and the vast majority have sought knowledge and information and instinctively fashioned their own behaviour to minimise spreading and catching the virus. It can be distilled to 10 points: 1. Wash your hands frequently, with soap or microbial sanitizer. 2. Use antibacterial wipes to clean public surfaces. 3. Limit visitations to elderly and aged care facilities, and keep up-to-date with

EASTERN SUBURBS

ever evolving guidelines. 4. Self-isolate for 14 days if tested positive. 5. Sneeze/cough into the pit of your elbow. 6. Stock two weeks of groceries. 7. Be aware, but not alarmed. 8. Avoid touching your face. 9. Avoid dense crowds and large gatherings. 10. Don’t panic! As in many cases, it seems that the “wisdom of crowds” provides sound answers even with imperfect knowledge. Which is good, because so much is still unknown about COVID-19. On a brighter note, it is now being reported that three Brisbane scientists are hot on the heels of creating a vaccine by using the infectious properties of the virus as a weapon against itself. Keith Chappell, Paul Young and Trent Munro may yet prove to be Australian heroes, adding to the long list of successful Aussie pioneers before them. Concerning Eastern Suburbs Life, we will now be putting more energy into distributing the digital version of the paper which can be read online at any time. It can easily be found on the home page of www.easternsuburbslife.com (together with a link to all past editions). In this issue of the paper we are also pleased to announce the launch of “Bayside News”. It is a 4-page liftout in the centre pages of the paper and covers news from the many bays between Elizabeth Bay and Watsons Bay, as well as, their adjoining suburbs. Thank you, as always, to our readers, contributors and those who work with us. We hope you keep well and that between us we can slow the spread of the virus so that it does not overwhelm the health care system. Regards and take care...

Businesses with years of successful trading are floored, people are self isolating, cafes and public venues are empty, and the economy is going into a nosedive. Despite this everyone knows we must carry on and find new ways to keep the wheels turning. We know our behaviour must change and that we must watch our budgets, but beyond that we’re not quite sure. On the basis that “We are either part of the solution, or part of the problem” Eastern Suburbs Life has put together some ways we think we can help.

A NEW APPROACH TO COMMUNITY PUBLISHING

Eastern Suburbs Life believes that publishing community news can be a joint venture between the public and a community publisher. After all, who knows more about what is happening in a local community than the people who live and work there? We have now used Social Media to let us create a structure where this can happen, and scale it to provide Digital and eventually Hard Copy News. It covers the area from Potts Point to Watsons Bay and Rose Bay to Little Bay. We are looking for people to help publish news in the following community areas: Bondi, Double Bay, Maroubra, Paddington, Potts Point, Randwick, Rose Bay, Waverley and Watsons Bay.

Ed 17, Mar - Apr 2020

Australia is home to many amazing people. One such person is Graeme Milbourne Clark, born in Camden, NSW in 1935.

Graeme Clark finished his secondary education as a boarder at Scots College in Sydney in 1951, then went to the University of Sydney graduating with honours from an MB, BS degree (1957). Fresh from medical school, Dr Clark worked at the Royal Prince Alfred and North Shore Hospitals as a resident medical officer (1958-59). Then he specialised as a registrar in neurosurgery and otolaryngology (1961). In the early 1960s Graeme spent time as a surgeon and senior registrar in otolaryngology in the UK. He returned to Australia in 1963 to take up positions in Melbourne at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital and the Alfred, Austin and Repatriation General Hospitals. Not satisfied with the treatments available to profoundly deaf patients, Graeme Clark returned to the University of Sydney to embark on further study. He completed both an MS (1968) and a PhD degree (1969). Graeme Clark then went on to develop the world’s first multi-channel cochlear implant, which has provided or restored the precious sense of hearing for many hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. The successful development of the cochlear implant has widened its application, from to all people who simply cannot obtain sufficient benefit from hearing aids and yet may

Cue the services of Home Sweet Home Nursing. Committed to ensuring people can stay in the comfort of their own home as long as possible, HSHN has two people at the helm that go above and beyond to maintain high standards of medical assistance. Their quality of nursing experience and expertise offers a unique service which makes a real difference. Between them, Marella Stigler and Karen Kelly have over 60 years’ experience as registered nurses. Their combined expertise covers public and private residential care, community care as well as private home nursing and they maintain an enthusiastic focus on individual care. Marella has personal experience in this area – an experience which inspired the creation of HSHN. “Instead of a hospital atmosphere – which can be noisy and you can’t have family coming in and out, I brought my dad home for six weeks before he died; he had family and his animals around him.” This ensured his peaceful passing within a caring, loving environment. It’s this family atmosphere that is HSHN’s point of difference. Why did they start this service? “We believe in really caring about the person;

have significant residual hearing, such as having a moderate-to-severe hearing

loss or no usable hearing in one ear. The most common age for an Australian to obtain a cochlear implant is in their 70s or 80s, when our natural hearing often ‘wears out’. Graeme Clark earned the title of Professor Graeme Clark in 1970 and is truly an Australian hero. If you know someone who is struggling with hearing, then contact the team at Edgecliff Hearing who are experts at hearing aids and implantable hearing devices, such as the cochlear implant.

the person we’re looking after,” Marella emphasises.

An obvious advantage of Home Sweet Home Nursing is personal service available around the clock: “Not many agencies can say they have a clinical nurse specialist running their business or available 24/7 – because we care,” enthuses Marella, who is a specialist in aged care, dementia and palliative care as well as being a clinical educator. “I go with staff and teach them on the job, and I’m on the phone 24 hours a day to support them.” The extensive services offered by HSHN cover care in the areas of daily visits, respite, hospice and palliative, dementia, 24-hour (live-in), post-hospital as well as leisure and lifestyle and nursing home support. Such good care often requires nursing supervision to ensure pain relief and comfort. “I’m passionate about what I do and want to keep people at home as long as possible. Everyone loves home!’” Marella says. As Home Sweet Home Nursing’s motto emphasises: “Because You Can’t Always Be There But We Can.”

HAIR&BEAUTY 5

HAIR BY YOLANDA MORE THAN CUT & COLOUR Hair by Yolanda, has been in Double Bay, since 2013, and before that she was with a larger salon in Woollahra for 11 years. The salon, is a boutique-style, one-woman business. Most of her clients have been coming to her for years. "I have seen them marry and have children. Now they’re telling their daughters, if you’re going to get your hair coloured for the first time, go to Yolanda!" It is not just Yolanda’s cutting and colouring skills that draw clients to her salon. You see, Yolanda is more than just a hairdresser to them. She is a trusted friend.

AUTUMN beauty TIPS

The cooler weather means taking a different approach to your skincare. In the autumn, the air becomes drier, and combined with wind, indoor heat and other factors, your skin can really suffer. Here are some handy beauty tips that will help you get through autumn.

EXFOLIATE

To save your skin from becoming dull, lacklustre and dehydrated during autumn, up your exfoliation to twice a week. Exfoliating regularly, helps to remove dead skin cells that can hinder the absorption of any moisturisers or serums.

INJECT MORE MOISTURE HYDRATE INSIDE OUT

Good hydration, from the inside out. Be sure to sip water regularly throughout the day; when the temperature drops, it can be tempting to reach for the tea and coffee, but keeping caffeine to a minimum will do both your skin and hair a favour in the long-run as it can be dehydrating and contribute to skin feeling tired and dull.

Having a super-moisturising facial product in your arsenal really is one of the most important autumn beauty tips to give your skin the edge against the elements. Make sure you avoid any cosmetics that contain drying alcohol (ethanol/alcohol denat), as this synthetic nasty strips your skin of moisture and can cause it to become dry and irritated.

Yolanda Austin is a Londontrained hair stylist and colour expert with a small salon tucked away in Double Bay’s Elbon Arcade.

SUPERIOR QUALITY HAIR PRODUCTS

Yolanda sources the best quality hair products from manufacturers such as Alfaparf Milano. She only uses products that are free of harmful chemicals and will keep your hair in good condition. "For example, the Alfaparf Milano shampoo is sodium, laurel and sulphate free and the colours are ammonia-free. Even though we’re using strong chemicals, we do our best to protect the hair."

ONE-ON-ONE HAIRDRESSING EXPERIENCE

"When you’re a hairdresser you’re also a counsellor and sounding board,’ Yolanda says. “I try not to give advice, but sometimes it’s impossible not to. But what is said in the salon, stays in the salon!"

Yolanda describes herself as a skilled all-round hairdresser, with particular skills in the colour department. She sums up her point of difference as giving the client "a one-on-one hairdressing experience."

The salon has two styling chairs plus a reclining chair for shampoos. The shampoo chair also gives you a back massage. "Because of the salon’s small size, there are never more than two clients in at the one time," says Yolanda, who studied hairdressing at the London College of Fashion, and worked in Knightsbridge.

"You’ll never be thrust over to the junior for the end of colour blow dry. You’ve got me from beginning to end."

USE A NOURISHING HAIR MASK

DON’T FORGET BELOW THE NECK

HELP OUT YOUR HANDS

Clean Out Your Makeup And Skincare Supplies Each season, you should go through your beauty products and toss any old or expired products. Wash makeup brushes with warm soapy water and replace your old makeup with some of falls hottest new colors.

Your hair can also suffer when the weather turns colder and heating comes on. With a decrease in humidity, your hair can become dry, prone to breakage and split ends. Restore moisture to your hair with a deeply nourishing hair mask.

Probably the most common cold skin quandary is dry, sore hands. This isn’t really surprising as our hands are often exposed to the elements, whether it's searching for keys or tapping away on our phones, we often neglect them when it comes to skin care. Because the skin on your hands doesn't produce as much natural oil as the rest of your body, this area is much more prone to dryness, especially in colder weather.

We pay a lot of attention to keeping the skin on our face in top condition, but many of us forget to look after our skin from the neck down. It is easier to ignore dry limbs when they are covered in layers of knitwear, but taking an extra two minutes after a shower to apply an organic body lotion can transform your skin.

FINDING A GOOD ELECTRICIAN

Finding a good electrician is not the hardest thing in the world to do, but if you want to avoid wasting good money on a bad result you need to do a bit of work. The obvious first step, for those who can, is to talk to a friend, neighbour or relative. Most will know of a local electrician who can be trusted and their recommendation is always a good first step. Alternatively, If you’re new to the Eastern Suburbs you can ask for advice on local community Facebook groups. Or you can plunge right in and select one online, or in a local paper or magazine. No matter which way you go you’ll still have to do your own checking, so first find out: • Exactly what sort of work is required. • Whether you need an electrician in the first place. • Whether the electrician is licensed and registered as an electrical contractor. • Where the electrician is based. • How reliable and trustworthy the electrician is. • What the electrician will charge for the job. In Australia, you’re legally allowed to change your own light bulbs and operate your appliances in the manner for which they’re designed. For most other work you may need to hire a qualified, licensed electrician.

Here are some tips that may help you in your search for an electrician.

1. FIND A LOCAL ELECTRICIAN

This will be more convenient, and should ensure that you’re not being charged for the electrician to travel to the job.

2. GET SEVERAL QUOTES

Compare a few quotes, not all electricians will charge the same amount for the same work, but they should be reasonably similar. Check out reviews online.

3. CHECK WITH OTHER TRUSTED CONTRACTORS

If you’re having a kitchen renovated, there’s a good chance that the builder will know a good electrician who he or she’s comfortable working with. Get it all bundled in the one price, if you can.

4. ASK TO SEE THE ELECTRICIAN’S LICENCE

Your electrician should have no problem with showing you this, or with you doublechecking with the state authority to ensure that the licence is valid.

5. CERTIFICATE OF ELECTRICAL SAFETY

You should receive safety certificates for any work that’s done.

BONDI PAVILION MAKEOVER TO BEGIN SOON Bondi Beach Pavilion is about to get a $38 million facelift after years of political infighting and community protest over the project. Due to commence in May, the works will transform the 92-year-old building’s interior and courtyards, while the gatehouse entrance facing Campbell Parade will be restored to create an inviting entry point. In addition, the pavilion will get a new roof of terracotta Spanish tiles, which were part of the original building's ‘Spanish mission’ and art deco mix. "It is the cultural and social heritage of the building that people mostly think about, but it also has architectural merit as well," Waverley Mayor John Wakefield says. The project has been designed by renowned architectural firm Tonkin Zulaikha Greer (TZG), which says it “aims to protect and celebrate Bondi Pavilion’s heritage whilst creating contemporary and flexible cultural, community and commercial facilities and spaces.”

OPPOSITION TO EARLIER RESTORATION PLANS

The original plans by Waverley Council were met with strong opposition from locals who believed the building was being over commercialised.

The campaign was spearheaded by famous Bondi residents including actors Michael Caton of 'The Castle' fame and screen legend Jack Thompson. In May 2016, hundreds of placard-waving locals protested against the plans, draping a huge banner across the front of the pavilion saying ‘MAKEOVER NOT TAKEOVER.’ The community outrage helped to topple the Liberal-led council, with Labor gaining a majority and Mayor Wakefield overseeing extensive community consultations, after which the Bondi Pavilion Conservation Management Plan (CMP) was put in place. The CMP, adopted by Waverley Council in June 2018, recognises the Pavilion as the centrepiece of Bondi Park, community life and grand point of entry to Bondi Beach from Campbell Parade.

A HUB FOR COMMUNITY AND CULTURAL ACTIVITIES

A focal point of the transformed pavilion will be a cultural space called the ‘Bondi Story Room’, where the history of the local area, including its indigenous heritage, will be on display. More space will be provided for the art gallery and the music studios will be renovated in their current location. A renovated space for community radio station Bondi Radio will be created alongside

ARTIST IMPRESSION OF COURTYARD AREA the music studios and the pottery studio will be expanded with construction of a second kiln. The main foyer on the ground floor will become a flexible display and function area, while the current first floor community space, including the Ocean and Seagull Rooms, will be renovated and continue to be used for events and functions, with a renovated bar and servery. Outside, the

courtyards will be levelled and landscaped, with no car parking allowed. And there’s good news for beachgoers who want to ‘spend a penny’ – there will be new toilet, shower and change facilities along the northern wall of the pavilion.

What's in a name?

The name “Bondi” comes from the Aboriginal word that means “water breaking over rocks” or alternately “noise of water breaking over rocks.” Another reference for the word “Bondi”corresponds to the place where a fight using “boondi” sticks took place. “Boondi” simply means fighting sticks.

Talking Tarot

ARIES star sign: You are a very adventurous and a fast acting character. Advice for 2020 is to think carefully about your money investments. Possible growth ahead in the work industry but dont rush and take time in making decisions. TAURUS star sign: As you are very ambitious, there are positive vibes coming your way and you tend to mostly get your own way. But be open to other suggestions as they can be of benefit to you. Being honest and direct can help you achieve your goal. As explained in my columns in previous editions of ESL, the Tarot Cards hold alot of information that can help you in the future. They are thousands of years old and hold many secrets. They are an amazing tool that you can get more information about yourself than you think. When first facing the task of reading the Tarot Deck I found them to be a great guide to me by seeing the pictures in front of me that told a story. They were thorough enough to gain my confidence. There are also some Tarot Card images which could be a need for calm and meditation. There are 78 cards in the Tarot Deck The cards are divided into 4 suits just like an ordinary pack of cards, 22 Major Arcana Cards which hold greater secrets and 56 Minor Arcana Cards which refer to ordinary life with all its joys and hardships. Wishing you all a good Love and Light ....

Walking along Oxford St, on the left hand side, used to be a department store called 'Grace Bros', opened in 1939. The store was replaced in 1957 by a large building designed by Morrow and Gordon, and with parking for 120 cars; the budget was £500,000, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. In the early 70's the store's striking modernist exterior was documented by prominent Sydney photographer Max Dupain. Grace Bros dominated shopping in the region until Bondi Junction Plaza was completed in 1976. The store was demolished in the early 2000's to make way for the new Westfield.

Heading down Bondi Rd, the newest development which I call 'The Darlek with views to kill' can't be missed,. this is surrounded by other ugly developments which has now made Bondi Junction a concrete jungle! On the corner of Adelaide St and Oxford St there was a shopping centre known as 'The Carousel' which opened in 70's. This three-level centre of around 50 shops included a Safeway supermarket (later Woolworths) and, notably for the time, a food court. The centre was characterised by a large carousel in the middle atrium of the ground floor.

Now only a tree and plaque marks the spot, and many people just pass it by.

The first house in the area was Waverley House, which was built by Barnett Levey in 1827, on the current site of Waverley Street. He intended to live there with his family, but never did and leased it out to other people. The house changed hands many times over the years before finally being demolished. When Waverley Municipality was proclaimed in 1859, the name was taken from Waverley House.

My walk begins on the corner of Council and Waverley Streets and ends at the Bondi Waverley Bus Depot. An easy walk, that points Bondi Junction's past history and present developments. With this COVID-19 situation, it's important to exercise!

What's the Buzz?

Crossing the road, I head down Spring St, and pass Easts Leagues. The club was established in 1958 on the first floor of the iconic Bondi Beach Pavilion, and formed with the sole purpose of raising revenue to support and endorse the Eastern Suburbs District Rugby League Football Club, and is now known as the Sydney Roosters. Easts Leagues has occupied the building in Bondi Junction since 1968.

Continuing down Spring St and crossing Newland St..I pass the Boot Factory. The Boot Factory, was a former shoemaking factory at the rear of Norman Lee Place at 27-33 Spring St and was completed in 1915 by William Sidaway and Son and was last restored by Council in 1986. It has been vacant since 2007, and in 2013, Council undertook significant remedial structural works to ensure the stability of the building until an alternative use could be found.

Waverley Council in partnership with North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club is building an advanced response lifesaving facility to improve volunteer lifesaving services at North Bondi. The new storage facility being built under the promenade will give volunteer lifesavers direct access to the sand and is in response to increased patronage at our famous beach. The North Bondi amenities block and Council’s beach gym will remain open during construction. The promenade and showers near the surf club will be closed for the duration of construction and pedestrian detours will be in place. The nearest showers are located above North Bondi kid’s pool. It is anticipated that the project will be completed in Spring 2020, weather permitting.

TOP GONG FOR WAVERLEY CEMETERY COAST WALK PROJECT

My walk ends at the historic Waverley Bus Depot, this Tram Depot opened in 1902. It provided trams that operated the Bondi and Bronte routes.

In 1994, Westfield bought a controlling stake in Bondi Junction Plaza from AMP and renamed it Westfield Bondi Junction Plaza. In 2000, Westfield purchased the Carousel Centre and the remaining stake in Bondi Junction Plaza. I take a detour down Bronte Rd, passing the 'Tea Gardens' opened in 1854. It was named The Waverley Tea Gardens and the surrounding area quickly took that name, quickly shortened to simply "Tea Gardens", which stuck for the next 30 years.

I pass Waverley Library, then onto Oxford St, where there are more high-rise developments. Fortunately, they have saved a beautiful facade on the corner of Denison and Oxford St.

The Waverley Cemetery Coast Walk project has won the Excellence in Infrastructure award at the 2020 Stormwater NSW Awards for Excellence. Waverley Council completed the project in late 2018 after a major storm caused a landslip and subsequent shutdown of the coast walk adjacent to Waverley Cemetery. The area had problems with stormwater within the cemetery and coast walk landscape. Council, in collaboration with Hydraulic Engineers from Group, designed a stormwater system that now captures and distributes stormwater through artificial rainwater gardens and hanging swamps. These gardens are planted with endemic plant species contributing to the unique coastline biodiversity. The stormwater treatment system and associated landscape works have created a functional aesthetic space for coast walk users with amazing views of the coastline and the cemetery.

3

The depot closed in 1959 for conversion a to bus depot. Today, only the southern section of the car shed remains, the northern section having been demolished. It remains in use as State Transit's Waverley depot. Look at extended walk of BJunc...passing TV's famous 'Bondi Vet' premises on Ebley St, and various community art projects . Don't miss WALKABOUT - CHARING CROSS in Ed 18...and remember to get out and walk, and appreciate the surrounds.

The project is now in the running to win the Excellence in Infrastructure national award to be announced mid-2020.

Exhibitors included the Pritzker awardwinning architect Glenn Murcutt and the multiple award-winning architectural firm Candalepas Associates, both of whom have used concrete to create stunning places of worship.

CONCRETE: a new look Who knew how versatile concrete is? Delicate concrete pots, doorstops, trays, planters, statuettes, candle holders, jewellery displays, gnomes – who’d have thunk it? With a history of over 3000 years, concrete was first used by the Egyptians in building the pyramids before the Romans produced what today is known as hydraulic cement-based concrete. However the secrets of concrete were lost with the fall of the Roman Empire, not to be rediscovered until the early nineteenth century. Of course, our harbour city is renowned for landmark concrete structures such as the Sydney Opera House and the Anzac Bridge, which are admired by visitors and locals alike.

However, as a material that has the rare quality of offering seamless textures, the extensive range of concrete objet d’art now available for decoration – as well as the more traditional use in home construction – is surprising as well as delightful.

Other outstanding examples of novel concrete applications included striking outdoor furniture by celebrated designers Adam Goodrum and Alexander Lotersztain while thought-provoking sculptural works were displayed by leading visual artists Jamie North, Abdul-Rahman Abdullah and Megan Cope. The infinitely varied surface and intricate detail offered by concrete was showcased by jeweller Inari Kiuru. The exhibition was produced by Adelaide’s Jam Factory. A quick online review reveals how concrete is being employed in many incredible artistic ways – and how small and inexpensive decorative items offer ‘on-trend’ décor to spruce up your abode with delicate designer touches.

Recent exhibition CONCRETE: art design architecture at the Australian Design Centre showcased its amazing aesthetic dimensions as well as its functionality. This exhibition revealed the innovative ways that concrete is being used by contemporary Australian artists, designers and architects in a variety of products, projects and works, from fine, hand-crafted jewellery to spectacular buildings.

Angelo Candalepas’ design of Sydney’s Punchbowl Mosque features a concreteringed dome with an ornamental ceiling; this in turn features 99 cast-concrete quarter-domes, each displaying one of Allah’s 99 names in gold calligraphy inside, as well as a 20mm skylight, so the building can be lit from outside, like a series of stars in concrete. Quoting Candalepas from the ADC interview: “<Concrete> can be made to appear as though it was a liquid, so if you are pouring your building into place… it’s like it is in suspended animation.”

WELCOME TO THE EASTERN SUBURBS BAYSIDE LIFTOUT

On Jan 18, 1788, Captain Arthur Phillip sailed into Botany Bay; but shortly after travelled North to enter what would be come Sydney harbour. It is thought that the first landing in Sydney harbour was on Jan 21, at Camp Cove. He had found a harbour that he thought could be settled and easily protected. One that offered many landing places to explore the surrounding countryside. In particular, on the southern shore, between what is now South Head and Circular Quay, there were many bays ideal for this purpose. This section of the paper is dedicated to news and information about these bays (from Elizabeth Bay to Watsons Bay) and their adjoining suburbs. Together they form some of the most historic suburbs in Sydney (and Australia). Broadly, if you are in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and can easily catch a view (or glimpse) of Sydney Harbour you are in one of those suburbs. Our aim is to keep you up-to-date with what is happening in this area as well a bring you snippets of history.

GENTLEMEN’S FINERY IN THE HEART OF ROSE BAY Quality clothing for stylish men of all ages is offered by new menswear store The Bolted Post. As soon as you walk in the door, you’re met with fine fabrics and classy taste. For The Bolted Post proprietor Anelia Bozinovska, her architectural background and keen interest in design inspired the shop design as well as the choice of clothing lines. “When I was looking for inspiration for the fitout, I aimed to make it a men’s oasis,” Anelia explained. The name derives from the interior architecture: featuring over 1000 stainless steel bolts with impressive tall wooden posts of solid Jarrah, it gives the impression of a stylised forest. “It has a very nurturing feel while still being masculine and powerful.” Having lived with her family in Rose Bay for 30 years, Anelia knows the area well and loves the location so was keen to extend on her retail involvement, especially having also recently opened a ladieswear shop nearby in New South Head Road. “There are no menswear stores in the area so that’s why I was excited about the idea. And

people who buy here, come back – a lot.” Customers range in age from 19-90 years but all desire a smart, but comfortable classic or sharp look. The fabrics are soft and luxurious, mainly cottons, wools and linens. The top seller is men’s trousers. An amazing choice is offered through the extensive size range – from 16 inches right up to larger sizes (52 inches). “The younger men often come in, see the pants and grab them.” And The Bolted Post offers a quick $15 hemming service. For those looking for the rare and elusive two-pocketed shirt, look no further! “We specialise in them,” Anelia informs. The Bolted Post is all about fine luxury clothing and accessories. “We’re trying to build up a total men’s emporium,” Anelia enthuses. “We have beautiful products, very reasonably priced – especially for people who live in the area, and want men to feel indulged a bit.”

For instance, did you know that Juniper Hall was named after the juniper berries used to make the gin created in Sydney’s first legal distillery built about 1820 near the bottom of Cascade Road? To help with this we have created an open “Bayside News” Facebook Group (which any Facebook user can join to share “Bayside News”) as well as “Bayside News” Directory & Articles sections on www.easternsuburbslife.org/baysidenews - Both are free to anyone who can pen a few words and take a picture. We’re also looking for people on a voluntary, or paid basis, who would like to help us give momentum to this project that celebrates the present day activities and history of the suburbs that “gave birth” to Australia.

THE NEW FACE OF

DOUBLE BAY

Mention the name Double Bay to someone in Perth, Canberra or Darwin and the chances are high they will have heard of it and know it’s an upmarket shopping village, on the harbour, not far from the centre of Sydney.

COSMO CAFÉ MR G's

If they first heard about it in the 70’s or 80’s they may also say “Double Bay, Double Pay” and even liken it to Rodeo Drive. First settled in 1788 it grew from a small fishing village to social scene fashion icon, always adapting to match the times. In between it boasted William Guilfoyle’s “Exotic Nursery” (1851), the take-off of the first flight over Sydney Harbour (1914) and Australia winning the Davis Cup (1909 and 1919). With fashion shopping now done online it is reinventing itself again. Firstly, with the return of an international hotel (The InterContinental) and more recently new building development.

DOUBLE BAY DAY HOSPITAL

True to form, it is now putting on a new face and emerging as strong as ever with a revitalised Cosmopolitan Centre, a sparkling new Cosmo Café and the arrival of Oroton, Australia’s first luxury fashion store. It also boasts an ever strengthening night economy where, between them Bay St and Cross St boast 14 eateries and entertainment venues including; The 18 Footers, Bedouin, Mr G’s Steakhouse, Sake Japanese Cuisine, Stillery Bar & Dining, Rooftop Bar & Lounge, Bukhara Indian Restaurant, Arte Bianca, Mrs Sippy, The Royal Oak Hotel, Matteo and Bibo Wine Bar.

SAKE JAPANESE

CHRISTOPHE LIVING

Add to that, 21 Espresso, Cosmo Café, Char & Co, China Diner and the illustrious Golden Sheaf and you reach almost 20 venues. All of outstanding quality, all distinctly different and all easily accessible by bus, train, ferry, taxi, Uber, car, cycle or foot. In the daytime, health and beauty are now a big part of the new face of Double Bay. It now provides an enormous variety of opportunities for people to choose between, gyms, yoga, pilates, spin classes, massage, chiropractic services, hair stylists, barbers, beauticians, doctors, dentists and cosmetic beauty specialists. And with it's own 'Day Hospital and Imaging Centre'. Double Bay can often provide a more convenient alternative to visiting Macquarie St in Sydney.

SO WHAT OF THE OLD DOUBLE BAY?

Don’t fret, part of it is still there. You can still buy jewellery from Jeff Einstein, Jan Logan, ESQ Jewellery and more recently Frank Robinson Jewellers.

ARTE BIANCA

Or if you wish to make your home more beautiful choose from Christophe Living, A Style of Shade, The Art of Windows, De Moyer Architecture, Studio Cavit, Sentosa Designs, Four Winds Gallery, or simply take a trip down Transvaal Avenue. As they say in France “Plus les choses changent, plus elles restent les mêmes.”

THE ART OF WINDOWS

OROTON, DOUBLE BAY

Is it just a coincidence that so much of this has happened since Woollahra Library opened on New South Head Road?

DARLING POINT, darling home Darling Point was known as 'Yaranabe' by the local Aboriginal people during the early days of the colony. It was renamed to Mrs Darling’s Point to recognise the wife of Governor Ralph Darling and later it was simplified to Darling Point. From the mid-1800’s the emerging gentry of the colony purchased lands and built their gentleman’s home called a ‘villa’ in Darling Point.

themselves as a social grouping and at the same time display their success.

They created an enclosed society outside of Sydney town by having their own laws, manners and customs, even their own song “The Darling Point Polka”. In late 1850's a Sydney magazine 'The Month' referenced the Darling Point residents ‘Darlingpointians’.

The gentry shared common interests in picturesque gardens, gothic architecture and science. They brought the society together by building St Mark’s church, establishing schools and bus service to the town, inviting neighbours to dinners, balls and concerts in fine manners and fashionable customs.

The 'Darlingpointians' were the emerging gentry of the colony. The new and picturesque harbourside suburb was a perfect place to create a good home for their families so that they could differentiate

Today, what the modern 'Darlingpointians' love about Darling Point remain the same. Serene atmosphere, picturesque water views, elegant homes close to the city and a strong sense of community. If you are new to the suburb, you can easily meet strangers who become new friends at the local hub, Richie’s Café, or attend the Tai Chi classes in McKell Park, or simply call me. Don’t forget to bring your good manners and cheerful appearance with you!

The initial requirement was to build only one villa with value at least 1000 pounds on each piece of the land purchased. The land in Darling Point was subdivided into 13 lots in 1833. By 1836 all lots were sold and by 1841 six villas had been built. Four of these villas survive today. They are Lindesay, Carthona, Mona and Percyville (later Greenoaks and Bishopscourt).

Very soon you will find you do not want to leave once you settle in the suburb. If you are thinking to sell or buy in Darling Point, the best person to help you is a true local – like me. I have quality buyers who can’t wait to call Darling Point home.

APRIL STRAUSS

THE AGENCY, 180 CAMPBELL PDE, BONDI BEACH 0414 690 218 aprilstrauss@theagency.com.au www.theagency.com.au

In May 2009, I turned down Darling Point Road to inspect an apartment behind Richie's Cafe, and a sense of peace and joy flowed through me. It was a strange feeling, but I immediately felt at home, perhaps it was the tree-lined street that reminded me of home. The stone gates of 'Babworth Garden' excited me, and I was curious about the history of the place. I signed the lease and moved in straight away. I had no idea that I had accidentally become a ‘Darlingpointian’. Nor, could I predict that I would meet another 'Darlingpointian' six years later (in Orme House in Marathon Ave) and marry him 9 years later at that same location.

New Tenancy Laws

During March, major changes to the residential tenancy laws take effect, with the new Residential Tenancies Regulation 2019 accompanied by amendments to the Residential Tenancies Act 2010. These are set to improve the position of tenants. For example, rent increases for continuing leases will be limited to once every 12 months. However, if a tenant breaks a lease early, mandatory set fees will apply to fixed-term agreements that are three years or less. This applies to agreements entered into from Mar 23, 2020.

SET BREAK FEES

The break fees are: • Four weeks rent if less than 25% of the lease had expired. • Three weeks rent if 25% or more but less than 50% of the lease had expired. • Two weeks rent if 50% or more but less than 75% of the lease had expired. • One week’s rent if 75% or more of the lease had expired. So, for example, in a 12-month tenancy agreement, a tenant would only be required to provide one week’s rent to their landlord to end their agreement early, if nine months (ie 75%) of the agreement had expired.

CPM MAKES STRATA MANAGEMENT EASIER RECTIFICATION ORDERS

Also from Mar 23, NSW Fair Trading will have new powers to resolve disputes between tenants and landlords over repairs, maintenance and property damage. This includes issuing rectification orders, a process which will also aim to support both tenants and landlords in resolving disputes over such matters.

SMOKE ALARMS

All NSW landlords will need to ensure that smoke alarms installed in the rented property are in working order or they can be penalised. To ensure smoke alarms are working properly, a landlord must: • Carry out annual checks. • Replace removable batteries in all smoke alarms in the period specified by the manufacturer, otherwise annually. • Repair or replace a smoke alarm that is not working within two days of becoming aware that it is not working. • Replace a smoke alarm within 10 years from the manufacture date, or earlier if specified by the manufacturer. For more information: www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au/about-fairtrading/legislation-and-publications/ changes-to-legislation/new-residentialtenancy-laws

Adopting a Common Property Memorandum (CPM) can deliver several benefits for owners corporations and strata managers. Gary Adamson, Managing Director, Strata Management Services NSW, and REINSW Strata Management Chapter Committee Chairperson was part of a strata management working group that introduced the CPM.

WHAT IS THE COMMON PROPERTY MEMORANDUM?

The Common Property Memorandum is a publicly available document that specifies who is responsible for the maintenance, repair or replacement of any common property. It details responsibilities for everything from balconies, electrical, ceilings and courtyards to flooring, windows, plumbing and parking. The prescribed common property memorandum can be uniformly applied to any strata scheme. The CPM document cannot be modified except to exclude specified items that are not applicable or present at the property. Adamson says while the CPM document is only four pages long, it contains enough

detail and is specific enough to meet the needs of any strata scheme.

KEY BENEFITS

Adamson says the key benefits of adopting a CPM include providing certainty around common property responsibilities and making strata management administration easier. “A CPM makes everything uniform for the strata schemes where it is adopted. From a strata management point of view, strata managers won’t need to move between different reference documents for each property. By having the CPM in place for all the properties they manage they will save on administration time.”

ADOPTING A CPM

A CPM can be adopted by passing a bylaw for the individual strata scheme. Source: REINSW

Giving patients a voice

Navigating our hospital and healthcare systems can be emotionally exhausting and overwhelming. A growing number of people seek out someone independent to help. Known as ‘patient advocates’ these personal representatives can speak – hence advocate, on behalf of the patient and/or their family. As a result, not only can health outcomes be improved but also stress is reduced. By accessing the correct medical path in a timely and effective manner, such advocates can literally add years to someone’s life. When Dorothy Kamaker’s mother was at risk of dying from poor medical management, Dorothy knew she had to intervene: “The ageism and lack of collaboration were diabolical.” As a result of Dorothy’s expertise and efforts, her mother enjoyed nine more good years with her husband and family. In addition to intensive care nursing qualifications, Dorothy enhanced her skills by graduating as an independent patient advocate –making her perfectly positioned to advise on medical treatment and hospital management. “It’s not about being the loudest voice in the room – it’s about knowing your rights, having a plan,and working with people in the health system to get a good result. It takes a high level of health literacy, honed

DOROTHY KAMAKER communication skills and emotional equanimity to effectively collaborate with health providers to engineer good outcomes.” Now Patient Advocates is becoming the go-to agency for support regarding safety through the onset of the coronavirus. “The latest enquires are related to our concierge services (how to plan for this health event) and to modifying our role for our current client load (reviewing in home/residential care safety),” Dorothy reports. “There are major revisions needed for every older person and for everyone with upcoming planned surgery; we are increasingly negotiating with doctors, nursing homes and families to keep vulnerable people as safe as possible.” In 2019, Alicia Dunn joined Dorothy and their diverse clinical nursing backgrounds mean

Patient Advocates Australia is ideally placed to support those facing difficulties or barriers in the health system. Other common situations they advise on include confronting new and overwhelming diagnoses, relatives with a “gut feeling” that hospital care is not good enough or concerned their loved one is being discharged too early, to those not satisfied with medical advice or treatment. Clients can rely on them to, for example, locate and monitor quality services to allow them to keep living independently at home while, for those requiring aged care accommodation, “we’re often requested to collaborate with nursing homes to revise protocols and monitor their care”. Interacting with medical providers is intimidating for many while trying to obtain reliable, plain English reports from doctors’ appointments can be frustrating. As well as,

sending understandable reports to families and attending medical appointments, those living outside Sydney often want someone on the ground to visit the family member as well as to ensure correct hospital care. We provide a completely independent perspective on what they’re being told about their health or aged care – and we’re with them as much or as little as they want,” Dorothy assures. “We end up with clients who are incredibly relieved and grateful that they’ve had someone on side, someone that they can trust.”

An Up-and-Coming Classic: Porsche 911 Turbo

What does that mean in the driver world? Resistance to destabilising forces for the driver, which is great, but probably equally as important outstanding fun in the corners.

This 911 Turbo Porsche was in the workshop getting its usual loving attention, and even in an environment of other Porsches, hi-end cars and classics, you can see immediately, this is a special Porsche. Josh looked at it and said – “write about that, it’s special.”

A bit about 'Women With Drive'. Sonja Kruger who is Porsche’s online mag 'Women With Drive' Ambassador, lately upgraded her Porsche Boxster to a Cayenne to accommodate her new family.

The news is that Porsche is shifting to an allturbo family, so in true classic tradition, this Porsche is the one that alters everything for a generation of new cars.

Martine Kwan, bought herself a Porsche 911 which was later converted to become her racing car. She is now an FIA licensed race car driver. She says it is fabulous to drive a Porsche and driving with a group of Porsche enthusiasts is even better.

Porsche’s Heritage design strategy – gives us sports car tradition that is stylishly being transported into the future for subsequent models - authentic Porsche tradition and design tradition and great attention to detail. They are carrying forward what we love about Porsche – the personality of the 911, the sound "The Porsche Bark", the character, the looks, the smell, the feel – the personality and they’ve added two Turbos, extra 50% more torque, manuel transmission, cross-drilled disc rotors for outstanding brakingall-wheel drive, and huge power so you can hear the turbos working.

Vinita Khilnani, always wanted a Porsche, and finally bought one. She says of this Porsche 911 Turbo “the curves are so sexy; this car speaks to me.” In 2013, Maria Sharapova won the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix and won – a 911 Turbo. 'Women With Drive' say the 911 Turbo is for “women with a premium mindset.” You could buy one and bring it to Joshua or Jeff and the team. After all, it is special. Edgecliff Automotive knows about “special.”

It is faster than ever. A good sales pitch for the car that defines the sports car brand. Whilst they have not re-written the already successful rule book, they have tweaked it a little.

PEG THATCHER

There have been revisions to the all-wheel drive system giving improvements in acceleration times. The system has new hardware to ‘more intelligently’ apportion drive between front and rear wheels, making the most of it 3.8 litre twin turbo.

did you know?

The development of Porsche's first turbocharged version of the Model 911 began in 1972. A prototype of the first 911 Turbo was unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1973 to test the market potential of the design. The production version was released at the Paris Auto Show in 1974 and was finally put into production in Europe for the model year 1975 and marketed simply as the "911 Turbo".

They are calling it a “liveable super car” that does 0-100 in 2.6 seconds! That will get you off first at the lights! It is one of the quickest cars in the world that is not a racing car! Tory Hagan calls it a “serious weapon.” He loves it and wants one! August Achleitner the head of the 911 development admits “these figures are rather on the conservative side.” It is traditional that Porsche’s claims can be beaten but “it is ballistically quick.”

The first 911 Turbo had a comparatively large 3.0 litre engine, ‘whale tail’ spoiler and trademark wide bodywork. In 1993 the 993-generation 911 Turbo was given another turbocharger and four-wheel drive.

It seems to be a secret no-one is really talking about. There was not much to find out. I did find out there are complaints about the cup holder. At least there are two of them and neither of them particularly accessible to the driver and it has a bit more carpet!

The 3.8 litre twin-turbo horizontally opposed engine at the rear produces 540 hp and maximum torque of 486 lb ft. With Launch Control, the 911 Turbo accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. The top track speed is 198 mph.

There’s a brilliant innovation in the door handle (pictured right). It has a mechanism, that when you pull the handle on the inside, the door opens all the way. It’s a release spring not exactly an opening handle and, you don’t have to push it. I drive a Mercedes 2-door with a very big, heavy door. I’d like that release mechanism on my doors. It’s brilliant and seems obvious.

Porsche’s current 911 Turbo sports three turbochargers when it is introduced later in 2013. Since its debut at the 1963 Frankfurt motor show, one million 911s have been built, and Porsche claims that 70% of these are still roadworthy. The millionth 911 has been kept by Porsche, and will reside in its collection after a world tour.

Chris Harris from Top Gear says " it has wide hips and a nice rou-it is competent". So, for the fun,of it, they’ve added an optional system - PTV, Porsche Torque Vectoring which works by varying the amount of torque transmitted to the rear wheels (pictured right). When the car is driven assertively into a corner, moderate brake pressure is applied to the inside rear wheel. Therefore, a greater amount of drive force is distributed to the outside rear wheel, inducing additional yaw movement around the vertical axis. With PTV at low speeds there is greater agility and precision steering. At higher speeds and coming out of the corner there is greater driving stability and traction.

The firm has treated the race track as a lab test; two-thirds of Porsche’s 30,000 race wins were in a 911.

Its popularity isn’t hard to explain, but it was Ferdinand Porsche who best described its qualities: “The 911 is the only car you could drive on an African safari or at Le Mans, to the theatre or through New York city traffic.”

Make a difference: Recycle for charity

JIFF Short Film Fund The Jewish International Film Festival (JIFF) is thrilled to announce the return of its Short Film Fund in 2020.

Successfully launched in 2017, the Fund was established to provide funding to Australian filmmakers for the completion of a Jewishthemed short film (narrative, documentary or animation).

Robert Kohn, Manager of Surry Hills popular op shop, Bargain Bazaar, is a busy man. When we caught up with him, he was plotting how to best lay out new offerings for the pop-up furniture shop he recently opened across the road in Cleveland Street. “With baby boomers downsizing and decluttering we are offered lots of furniture and decorative items. It’s great to have somewhere to properly showcase these donated goods” he said. The stores, staffed by volunteers, raises over $100,00 annually. Profits are distributed to several local charities in the Surry Hills and Redfern area. “It’s a lot of money from things nobody wants any more” he said.

“People say it’s the best opportunity shop in Sydney. Local clients scour the shelves regularly as well as stopping by for a chat and the social contact contributes to the friendly atmosphere” said Kohn. Organisations to benefit include: South Sydney Police Boys Club, Women and Girls Refuge - Redfern, Syd Childrens Hospital, Courage to Care, Aust Cancer Research, Diabetes and Stem Cell Research – University of NSW. If you are decluttering, selling or attending to deceased estates and have good quality items to donate.

In 2019, the Fund was awarded to local filmmakers Karen Pearlman and Joel Kohn, whose films I want to make a film about women and The Mirror had their World Premiere screenings at JIFF 2019. 2017 winner, Still Alive (dir. Anita Lester), has gone on to great international success, with screenings at film festivals around the world, and a recent licensing by Yad Vashem to screen as a part of their digital exhibition. In 2020, a total grant pool of $10,000 is available for the production of two short films (narrative, animation or documentary) incorporating a Jewish theme, character or story arc. We are seeking treatments and scripts for films under 10 minutes that are universally engaging and entertaining, and able to resonate with audiences from all backgrounds. “We are excited for JIFF to continue to be a catalyst for the production of great Australian short films to be shared on the big screen, providing a launching pad for their international recognition,” JIFF artistic director Eddie Tamir. Building on a 30 year history of Jewish film festivals in Australia, JIFF has established itself at the forefront of the world’s biggest and

most successful Jewish film festivals. Cementing its reputation for delivering international cinema of supreme quality, the festival is proud to showcase a diverse and world-class slate of film and event programming: from award-winning documentaries and dramas, to comedies and short films. Screening across 8 locations in 5 cities with audiences of over 55,000, JIFF provides an outstanding national exposure to a diverse and engaged audience. This year, the festival looks forward to continuing its support of Australian filmmakers with its Short Film Fund: a monetary funding initiative that aims to create opportunities for emerging filmmakers in Australia, and to encourage and support the production and exhibition of short films on themes that engage with Jewish life, history and culture. JIFF is committed to supporting and championing local filmmakers, and stories reflecting the global Jewish experience. The festival is seeking projects to a maximum length of 10 minutes, and is open to all filmmakers who are Australian residents. Applications for the 2020 Fund are now open on the JIFF website, and close on Apr 1, 2020. The allocation of funding will be announced in mid-May 2020, and will be determined by a panel of experienced industry judges. We expect the films to be ready for exhibition at JIFF 2020, with final delivery required by early October 2020. Further information

Overdue library book fines to be scrapped

Good news for anyone who has ever tried to withdraw books from the library, only to be told there are outstanding fines from those long-overdue books. From June this year, Randwick is scrapping overdue fines at its libraries. It will say goodbye to $169,000 in unpaid fines and encourage borrowers to return overdue books in a special amnesty.

Woollahra Council's Community and Cultural Grants program seeks to support programs or projects that work towards a connected, liveable, vibrant and creative community in the Woollahra Local Government Area.

The 2020 round of Small Community and Cultural Grants for community initiatives up to $2,000 and Large Community and Cultural Grants up to $7,500 opens on Mar 30. Applications will be received up until May 17, 2020.

RANDWICK

It could spend up to $1.2 million replacing the clifftop boardwalk following the latest tragedy, the death of a 21-year-old female British tourist in January. The tragedy took place despite a number of measures already taken by the council after another young woman lost her footing and plunged to her death last August. Safety improvements implemented since that death include a new balustrade, signage and clifftop blitzes by rangers who have fined thrill seekers for disobeying council signs. But many locals believe more needs to be done. Council officers have ruled out CCTV surveillance as too costly. A report tabled at the latest full meeting of council said “it may be costly and difficult for the cameras to be continually monitored. Without monitoring, the cameras would therefore only act to record risky behaviours to be viewed retrospectively.” One avenue the council is actively pursuing is warning tourists about the dangers of Diamond Bay on social media platforms such as Instagram, Weibo and Wechat. Council officials have also been investigating and contacting websites promoting Diamond Bay as a selfie location. But a majority of councillors are now warming to the idea of extensively and expensively rebuilding the boardwalk along the edge of the infamous clifftop. The report tabled in council said a new boardwalk and viewing platform would cost $1.2 million.

“Library fines are often a disincentive for people to return items and/or use the library as those who can least afford to pay fines are often the ones who need the library service the most,” Randwick’s Director City Services Jorde Frangoples said in a report tabled at a council meeting. Councillors agreed to scrap the fines system in favour of a compliance process that uses restrictions on membership as a lever. For example, when items become overdue, “privileges” such as the use of library computers could be temporarily removed.

Call for sunscreen machines at beaches

Councillor Dylan Parker has called for sunscreen machines to be provided at major beaches within the Randwick LGA. “Two out of out of three Australians will be diagnosed with some form of skin cancer in their lifetime,” Councillor Parker told a full meeting of Randwick Council. He suggested that Randwick follow the lead of Coffs Harbour Council, which had recently installed sunscreen vending machines. “The stations operate on a 'pay as you go system', dispensing 10ml to 50ml amounts via a touchscreen, with payment made via debit or credit card,” Councillor Parker told the meeting.

Barry Collins OAM honoured at meeting

In answer to a question from Councillor Will Nemesh, Waverley Council’s Director, Community, Assets and Operations Emily Scott revealed that 20 spaces had been lost in one Bronte location alone. A further four spaces had been lost as a result of the Seven Ways Streetscape Upgrade and it was ‘likely’ that the South Bondi Amenities Project would deprive drivers of an additional 16 spaces. Ms Scott indicated the street parking erosion could continue with other capital works and development projects.

Member for Coogee Greetings Everyone! I hope the school and work year has started off well for all of you. I look forward to continuing to engage with local business owners, constituents and charities in my electorate on a range of issues. Here is an update on some of the things we will be working on this year...

SYDNEY CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL RANDWICK

Our campaign to save paediatric cardiac services at the Sydney Children's Hospital in Randwick was successful! We received thousands of responses to the parliamentary petition and the NSW Government has committed to ensuring these essential services remain in Randwick. Thank you to all who contributed.

EASTERN SUBURBS BUSES AND LIGHT RAIL

The NSW Government decision to privatise Eastern Suburbs buses continues to anger many residents who do not wish to see the loss or variation of services which has occurred in other locations following privatisation. I encourage you to contact our office if you have any concerns about changes to your bus route. Similarly, if you wish to discuss your experience with the light rail and how it has impacted your commute, please do not hesitate to contact us.

ST PATRICK’S DAY FUNDRAISER

I would like to invite everyone to join me and my many Irish constituents to celebrate St Patrick’s Day and raise money for the Irish Support Agency. On Sat, Mar 14, 2020 we will have a Gaelic Football demonstration on Coogee Beach at 7am followed by a traditional Irish breakfast and entertainment at Coogee Legion Club from 8-10am.

Disappearing parking spaces

Dozens of parking spaces in the streets of Waverley are disappearing as a result of street upgrades and residential development projects.

Marjorie O'Neill MP

BARRY COLLINS OAM Councillors stood in silence for a minute to honour the memory of Barry Collins, OAM. Mayor Danny Said told the meeting that Collins was born in Randwick and went on to play first grade rugby league for Randwick. “The final chapter of Barry’s life revolved around his beloved Coogee RSL,” the Mayor said. “He joined the RSL in 1964 becoming a long serving Board Member and, of course, the Club’s Welfare Officer for many years. We are all indebted to the members and staff of Coogee RSL, for they were Barry’s Sydney ‘family’ in his later years.”
