State Labor MP Angela D'Amore has launched a search for the most impressive ''house bling'' in her electorate. ''Each year I am amazed at the levels of enthusiasm and hard work that goes into Christmas light and decoration displays at people's homes,'' Ms D'Amore said. ''The atmosphere created, as well as the wonderful streetscapes produced by families, is some- thing that should be recognised and celebrated.'' Anyone from the Drummoyne electorate can enter the contest, which is sponsored by the Canada Bay Club. One entrant that should be a hot contender is the Janet St, Russell Lea, home of Jim and Joyce Allen. Their astonishing display in- cludes a rocking Santa sleigh, two reindeer rides and a moving train. Murphy's law: a $60k parking fee SHIREEN KHALIL THERE'S been nothing merry about the annual Christmas battle between South Strathfield resi- dents and Woolworths over park- ing ''chaos'' at its Dan Murphy's liquor store on Coronation Pde. The supermarket giant has been using Coronation Reserve for the past seven years for customer parking during the peak Christmas period but residents say they have had enough, claim- ing the street has been reduced to gridlock. At Strathfield Council's meeting last week, councillors voted to charge Woolworths a $10,000 bond and $10,000 fee, however, after a late amendment this figure tripled, costing the retailer a whopping $60,000 in total. Woolworths spokesman Ross Finlay, who attended the meeting, appeared shocked at the outcome. ''It's funny to have a negotiation without other the party's (Woolworths') involvement,'' Mr Finlay said. Long-time resident of Coron- ation Pde Leon Booth said he was fed up with the councillors as they had done nothing to resolve the issue and ensure parking prob- lems in the street don't happen again for another year. ''This is the third council that has had to vote on this matter,'' Mr Booth told the meeting. ''Council has a duty of care to its residents and something needs to be done.'' He said the staff traffic control- lers who were suppose to monitor the area often didn't turn up. ''The staff need to be there all day from open to close, that's the only way residents can have better access to their homes and I'll agree with it when it happens, but it didn't work last year,'' he said. However, a Dan Murphy's spokesman said the traffic plan worked well last year and they would use it again until another plan was revised for next year. A ''community appreciation event'' for residents after Christmas, hosted by the council, was also passed as part of the decision. 2122308i iww wk24 Burwood NSW 2134 Tel: 0402 343 811 email@example.com Burwood Road Railway Pde Burwood Station WE ARE HERE We stock a HUGE range of ladies, mens & kids shoes.
