The 14 Woolworths stores in the Inner West are planning a touch football day on Sunday, October 12, at Timbrell Park, Five Dock, from 9am-3pm including a sausage sizzle, pie throwing competition and raffles. Asset sale postponed BURWOOD Council voted to suspend any decision on the sale of any council assets until all councillors have been briefed on the council's financial situation. This decision was put forward by new Mayor Lesley Furneaux- Cook during the mayoral election meeting and was passed unanimously. Legends at lunch THE Sports Lunch will be held from noon at The Rowers, Drummoyne. Former Group 1 champion jockey, trainer and commentator Malcolm Johnston and Australian cricket legend Doug Walters are guest speakers. There will be a charity auction and all money raised will go the Children's Hospital at Westmead. Tickets cost $85 each or $800 for a table of 10, including four-course lunch and beer, wine and soft drink. To book, phone 9719 1522.

This year, Council has already built a number of environmental themed trails throughout Strathfield Park and is currently analysing feedback received for the Strathfield Town Centre project. Another key direction is sustainable development to ensure Council's growth delivers a balance of social, environmental and economic outcomes. In working towards this goal, Council's trial of using bio-diesel fuel in its diesel vehicles has already reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 9.3 tonnes. Council also supports Greenfleet Australia, which plants native trees to offset carbon dioxide emissions produced by Council vehicles. All these achievements are against a backdrop of sound financial management, with Council's financial strength recognised by an independent report into the financial sustainability of NSW councils. Council has many more exciting projects planned, including energy and water saving initiatives, crime prevention programs, park improvements and community programs, and will keep you informed as they are rolled out. Please feel free to either contact the Council or myself if you have any enquires or require any further information.
