lat Bush Corps Plant has just moved to a new office at 18 Fusion Road, near Botany Junction. To make their presence felt, Salvation Army Flat Bush had a garage sale on the weekend so that locals get to know of their new address. The turnout was a very good one he says. “We’ve been conducting English classes at the premises for the last two weeks and have also been giving away food parcels,” says Ameet Londhe, Flat Bush officer Lieutenant. Both Ameet and his wife Jessica have been working in the community for the last two-and-ahalf years and this is a step in the right direction.

Turning on the heat were Ballet School Dropouts, Trillian and Dahlia Dangerous who demonstrated the art of tease. The tantalising fan dance routine was a mix of grace with synchronisation and sensual energy that had every member of the audience transfixed, refusing to blink or breathe. All in all, a thoroughly entertaining fun evening of decadent glamour.
