One last goal for Trevor was to have the State Government install lift access to Redfern Station, one of the busiest stations on the city rail network. It’s time for this community need to be met. Join other concerned members of the Redfern, Chippendale & Darlington area in this important campaign.

TOGETHER WE CAN ACHIEVE THIS

TREVOR DAVIES:
Anyone who has lived in the Darlington Redfern area for even a brief time knew who Trevor was, the heart of our community often to be found sitting outside the Tripod Café during the day or The Saucepan of an evening. Trevor started our community newspaper The South Sydney Herald, and was the News Editor. He was also the long time Branch Secretary of Darlington ALP and a member and Elder of South Sydney Uniting Church. We miss Trevor’s greeting of “Hello Comrade”, and farewell of “God Bless” or “Jesus Loves You”. Trevor’s community activism included foundation member of REDWatch, Vice President of the Erskineville Conference of the St Vincent de Paul Society, & committees for The Settlement, South Sydney Community Aid, South Sydney Community Transport and Redfern Residents for Reconciliation. Trevor started the Chippo Politics forums at Thurless Castle Hotel, and was a strong advocate for the Pemulwuy Project.
Trevor was a resident of our area for over 30 years; he lived a life of commitment to justice and compassion. To quote Geoff Turnbull from the memorial Edition of the South Sydney Herald (No.95 July 11 20011) “…he knitted together people’s lives in his friendship and endeavours. This was his greatest political achievement. He created communities, he generated discussion and he made everyone, even those he disagreed with, matter”.
