Sydney Rd. Street Party
Join in the fun on Sunday 3rd March. As always we will have a presence on the street with hospitality offered in our buildings. Our theme for this year is Respect. We want to engage the community in a conversation about respect – who we respect and who we don’t, who needs respect. The party is such a fabulous opportunity to get involved with the whole Sydney Rd. community. Please consider offering an hour or two of your time for one or more of these activities. Contact Saide Cameron if you can, 0407 096 743.
