The 2021 Beecroft Cheltenham Civic Trust AGM
Clean Up Australia - Sunday morning 6th March
The annual Clean Up Australia went ahead on Sunday morning 6th March. While the inclement weather no doubt deterred many people from attending fifteen volunteers turned up to make the morning a success. We were fortunate with the weather as the rain temporarily held off for the crucial three hours while the volunteers collected litter around the usual ‘hot spots’ including Beecroft shops, carparks and along Wongala Crescent as far as Arden School where there is always litter next to the rail line. This year one intrepid volunteer ventured up to Observatory Park and found it a challenge to collect the volume of litter in the vicinity of Mount St Benedict School.  A special thanks to Beecroft Scouts for their assistance. See you all again in 2023.

The Sad Passing of Another Long Time Resident
One of Beecroft’s most famous sons, Nigel Butterley AM, died on 19 February 2022 after a long illness. Nigel grew up in Hannah Street, Beecroft from where he went to Sydney Grammar and the Conservatorium of Music. He went on to become a leading Australian composer – while at the same time also composing pieces for Beecroft Public School and St Johns Anglican Church. Along with Mr & Mrs Hillier he was central in the Beecroft Music Club in the 1960s and early 1970s. A biography can be found on the web page of the Beecroft Cheltenham History Group where can also be found a history of the Beecroft Music Club.
