Message from the President I
hope everyone is well. This is a special Anzac Day eNews edition. The
current social and economic controls imposed upon on us by Covid 19, are
affecting us in different ways. From the obvious physical constraints
there are also the more worrying effects on our mental health. I will be
very surprised if there is any of us not adversely affected in some
way. So I hope this eNews edition augurs well.
I am finding that the eNews bulletins the Trust is sending out on a
regular basis are appreciated by our community. I frequently receive
replies from you our readers, supporting the work the Trust is doing.
The last eNews was read by 500 people and then forwarded onto a further
600 readers. In the next eNews I will provide further the feedback I
have received from my comments on the Spanish Flu in the last eNews.
This eNews has links to bushwalks in our Local Government Areas. I
look forward to seeing many of you on the bush tracks around
LIGHT UP THE DAWN ON ANZAC DAY There’s
no doubt that ANZAC Day 2020 will be different to how we traditionally
commemorate. While we cannot gather at services and marches, we can be
together in spirit.
By standing at the end of your driveway, in your living room, or on your
balcony at 6am on ANZAC Day, we can be united in the ANZAC spirit to
remember all those who served and sacrificed.
For more ideas and information CLICK HERE.
HOLDING YOUR ANZAC DAY SERVICE AT HOME At 6am, you can stream the audio of a short commemorative service of five-six minutes from wherever you are at home.
Order of Service:
- Acknowledgment of Country
- The Ode
- The Last Post – Australian Army Band
- A minute’s silence
- Reveille – Australian Army Band
- Advance Australia Fair – Australian Army Band
- God Defend New Zealand – Australian Army Band

SHOW US YOUR ANZAC DAY SPIRIT Send in your dawn photos to email@example.com

Together – even while apart – we’ll remember those who served and sacrificed.

bike riding. Our local bushland is very popular and getting a
serious workout. If you are looking for a new track to explore

Proposed Child Care Centre in Cheltenham A
Development Application (DA259/2020) has been lodged with Hornsby
Council to convert the property known as 181-183 Beecroft Road, at the
corner of Cheltenham Road, into a child care centre. To view the various
documents CLICK HERE
This property is of exceptional quality that contributes to the Beecroft
Cheltenham Conservation Area. The DA proposes altering the existing
house and constructing an additional structure between the rear of the
house and the adjoining heritage listed former church at 179 Beecroft
Road, which is currently being converted into another child care centre.
The Trust has objected to the DA on heritage grounds and has also
requested an Interim Heritage Order to be placed on the property. CLICK HERE and then CLICK HERE to access the Trust’s correspondence to Council.
