Your Council back in business

A big thank you for your confidence in me!

Thank you to everyone who voted for me in the November Council Elections. The new Council of the Mayor and 12 Councillors were sworn in last Monday.  You can view the Unley results here,   With the first official meeting on Monday, it will be back to business after several weeks in "caretaker mode" when virtually no decisions could be made.

It promises to be a busy four years, with more rezoning, more Traffic Management studies, flood mitigation (a dam or no dam upstream in Mitcham) crunch time fast approaching, and some exciting changes likely in the Unley Shopping Centre area.

Remembrance Day at Unley Memorial Gardens

Commemorating the signing of the armistice which ended the "war to end all wars' on 11th November 1918, a moving service was held at the Unley Memorial Gardens next to Unley Shopping Centre.  With the Unley Concert Band, Walford Girls School Choir  and representatives from  the three services, perfect weather, I would rate it as very successful  Remembrance Day organised by the local RSL  It was great to see so many young people there to pay their respects.

As an ex Pomm who grew up having to stand up or the National Anthem, God Save the Queen even before the show in the local cinema, I have often wondered why we never sung the second verse, which I would imagine was popular at times of war,

2. O Lord our God arise, 
Scatter her enemies 
And make them fall; 
Confound their politics, 
Frustrate their knavish tricks, 
On Thee our hopes we fix, 
God save us all! 

Perhaps it is no longer politically correct.

Thanks to the Unley Council for their hospitality after the service.
