Our public presentation is on soon!
On Saturday, 12th July from 12 noon for an hour, we’ll be presenting our vision to you, our wonderful supporters.
It’s at the Sydney College of the Arts main lecture theatre, in Callan Park – Balmain Road, Rozelle.
We, along with the whole community, are still waiting for the release of the report being prepared by the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and the announcement of their recommendations for Callan Park.
We still hold out some hope we may be included, but if not, we will really need you with us, for the fight.
This is why we ask you to come to the meeting and bring your friends. The best message we can send to Frank Sartor is that you, the community, support this idea with a passion.
We’ve been working on all fronts to get our message out over the last 6 weeks and it’s working. We’ve had stalls at either Orange Grove School, Marrickville Markets, Rozelle Markets, Balmain and Leichhardt every weekend. Our trusty committee members and helpers have done a great job so far, struggling out of bed at some ungodly hour!
As a result we’ve had an increase in membership to over 600 – both financial and subscribers. Donations, membership fees and t-shirt sales have helped to boost our meagre resources.
But the most important aspect of this is the overwhelmingly positive feedback we’ve received wherever we present the idea to people. This alone should be enough to convince us we’re on a winner, and definitely to convince the politicians. If only they were on the ground, at the markets and out in the community with us…
We’ve also had success with sponsorship. A banner company VFX have donated over $1000 worth of printing for the 2 banners we have across Norton St and Balmain Rd at the moment. Leichhardt Council has also been supportive, both financially and morally.
