Our Shame File
The battle at Parramatta: Lennox Bridge
This message is from June Bullivant OAM who started the petition "NSW State Government: Save the 1836 David Lennox Heritage Listed Bridge, Parramatta," which you signed on Change.org.
Just read the minutes of the Heritage Council meeting of the 3rd October where there were seven people attended, two declared interests because they work for Parramatta Council, the architects acting for Council were allowed to make a presentation, so five people, yes 5 people made the decision to destroy the Lennox, can you believe it, we had two campaigns to fight this development one we achieved 141 people against the portals, the one we delivered today we had 134 people against it, many more people have emailed to these people that they are against destroying the Lennox, but five people, yes five people can overrule public opinion, and they are not accountable to anyone, does that tell you something.
If you think that we live in a democracy you are wrong. Sign our petition to fight this stupid decision, and make this people rescind it at https://www.change.org/en-
Join us on the last Friday of the month

One of our members carried out our usual drive around the Mount Druitt Districts to see what stages our Heritage buildings were at and was excited to see the house Southridge that our "Fellow" George Nicolaidis and the Society have fought so hard to have restored was well underway.
Proposed event to be held at The Manse -
Come and help us celebrate 100 years of the end of World War 1, the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Mount Druitt Chamber of Commerce and the recognition ceremony of our societies founding members (Kitty Ryan, Bill Sword and George Nicolaidis OAM FMDHS) There will be military displays, major events and much, much more. Anyone who had a family member who served in World War 1, contact Hazel Magann OAM FBDHS on (02) 8807 0169
