Honouring our Anzacs

As we commemorated Anzac Day across Australia, it was an honour to lay a wreath at the Double Bay Cenotaph in Steyne Park alongside HMAS Watson Commanding Officer, Captain Heath Robertson, Member for Wentworth Dave Sharma, Member for Vaucluse Gabrielle Upton, Senator Andrew Bragg and local WW2 veteran John Ryrie as well as a number of my fellow Councillors.

It was such a wonderful turnout, made even more special having students from Double Bay Public School in attendance. It is vital to ensure the Anzac spirit is kept alive for future generations, so I thank you for helping us to share their legacy.

I was also honoured to be able to attend a special Anzac ceremony at Mark Moran Vaucluse.

I personally remembered my father who served in WWII in the Middle East and New Guinea, notably on the Kokoda Track. It is so important for us to come together to remember the service men and women who sacrificed so much for our nation and recognise and thank those who still serve today.

Problem Waste Drop Off

Items that can’t be recycled or disposed of in your bin at home can be problematic, but Council has the solution: this Saturday 1 May you can bring all your problem items to our Woollahra/Waverley Depot at 67A Bourke Rd, Alexandria to make sure they are properly recycled.

We take polystyrene, bulky cardboard, light globes, batteries, x-rays, clothing/textiles, phones, soft plastics and e-waste. Every item you drop off is a valuable resource that can be given a second life and importantly, will be diverted from landfill.

Visit Rubbish and Recycling for further info.
