Harry’s Shed official opening
The official opening of Harry’s Shed was held at the Concord Community Centre on Friday 23rd August, with Canada Bay’s Deputy Mayor, Pauline Tyrrell, doing the honours alongside guest speakers Jeanette O’ Hara, acting president Tony Hill, Kevin Callinan OAM, John Murphy MP and John Sidoti MP.
Named in honour of former Councillor and Deputy Mayor Jeanette O’Hara’s late husband, Harry was a strong advocate of the Men’s Shed concept as a way for retired men to work together to benefit the community. Harry’s Shed is now open from 9am to 12pm on Mondays and Thursdays.

Newtown Public turns 150
Newtown Public School will be celebrating their 150th anniversary on September 14th with an Old Fashioned Fair running from 10am to 4pm, featuring stalls, rides and fabulous food. Established in 1863, the school’s written records were burnt in an incinerator during the 1960s so little history exists for the school. As a way of redressing this the school received a City of Sydney Cultural Grant to make a documentary, recording interviews that will fill the gaps in the written record.
The doco will be screened at the fair so don’t miss out.
