Glenorie Community Carols on again in 2020. Save the date: Sunday 6PM 20th December 2020
Fantastic to hear that the Glenorie Community Carol tradition will continue in 2020. Save the date—location to be announced shortly, probably the Les Shore Oval. Keep an eye on the Galston Glenorie & Hills Rural News website and Facebook page for further updates.
$20,000 contribution to the Ray Whiteman Glenorie Heritage Fence behalf of the Estate of “our wonderful and dedicated Uncle Ray Whiteman”
In addition to the state government grants pledged ($30,000) and the Hornsby Council’s contribution thus far in planning, the family of the late Ray Whiteman, whose legacy and passion for the community and the remembrance of ANZAC at the Wal Buckingham Park triggered the commencement of this project, have pledged a further $20,000 towards the construction of the fence. Planning is now complete, and the project should commence soon. Thank you to the extended Whiteman family.
Switch to Community Banking today
At GPA we are all about community. A great way of contributing to your own community is to switch your banking to Galston & Districts Community Branch of Bendigo Bank. Instead of the profits disappearing to far-flung institutions, you will be “sowing” back into our community.
In our community the bank has funded Men’s’ Shed, Mental Health, local schools and local sports clubs as well as many other initiatives. Please help us keep this virtuous circle of good alive and switch your banking today. It will take you only minutes. You can call Lisa Wakeford at the branch on 02 9653 2227 or email: lisa. wakeford@bendigoadelaide. com.au or sign up online. If you sign up online, please ensure you nominate Galston as your local branch. Don’t postpone, do your good deed, today.
Glenorie is being gouged – Glenorie Service Station cannot come soon enough
Apart from the hassle of battling Dural traffic for a tin of mower fuel on the weekend, our community is being gouged by the local “fuelopolies”. On any day you can check NSW Fuel Check App and see that on average, residents of Glenorie, Galston, Dural and surrounds who purchase locally, are ripped off (on average) more than 40 cents a litre. You can verify this for yourself by checking the app. At the time of writing this article, I captured some of the prices. For U95 $1.62.90 at Shell Dural, $160.90 at Caltex Dural, meanwhile at Shell in Rouse Hill the same fuel is $118.90, United North Richmond $115.70. A service station at Glenorie, hopefully, an independent brand, would bring greater competition and fantastic convenience. The GPA supports the application. It was good to see that the application had been updated in September. You can follow the DA yourself on the council’s DA tracker: DA 817/2019/HA.
