Have you heard? - The fast news with Trevor Davies - December 2009

Trevor Davies in Have You Heard – The fast News in the South Sydney Herald of December 2009 has reported on a couple of Redfern Waterloo items which we have extracted below:

Surry Hills Festival returns to Crown Street

It seems that, next year, the Surry Hills Festival will move back to Crown Street from Prince Alfred Park. It had moved from Crown Street to Prince Alfred Park after the RTA   decided to impose massive charges on the Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre (the organisers of the festival). The charges would have wiped out most of the profit from the festival which is, we understand, the Neighbourhood Centre’s main source of income. Now the million-dollar question is: Will the RTA do it again? 

Living heritage

There’s always a lot of interest in heritage issues – old buildings, the Eveleigh rail yards, etc., but there are some inner-city residents who should also be seen as living heritage. Poppy is of Greek heritage, born in Alexandria, Egypt. She has been living in Darlington for 50 years and knows all there is to know about  Darlington. Poppy had coffee with her favourite pollie, Tanya Plibersek, and offered the Minister some good old Greek wisdom.
