Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : March 11th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, March 12, 2009 13 NEWS Ambos' new home Professor Anthony Mellows opens the new St John Ambulance headquarters at Burwood. Picture: PHIL BLATCH AFTER two years of trying to find a suitable location, St John Ambulance Australia has decided to move its headquarters to Burwood. Now in Surry Hills, St John (NSW) will move its operations to Burwood by the end of the year. Last week, senior member Professor Anthony Mellows unveiled a foundation plaque on the new building. ''We have exchanged con- tracts on an excellent build- ing that will become our new home at Burwood,'' Prof Mellows said. The building is next to Burwood Railway station and will host staff from four of the existing sites -- Surry Hills, Rydalmere, Marrick- ville and Smithfield. St John (NSW) chief executive officer Sean Gavin said the move would centralise many of the or- ganisation's operations in NSW allowing it to work better as a team and im- prove efficiency. He said it would also benefit the Burwood com- munity by bringing in busi- ness. ''Up to 200 people walk through the doors of St John in Surry Hills every day, 35 per cent of those to learn first aid. When we move, that will likely bring busi- ness to the local community of Burwood,'' Mr Gavin said. Burwood Mayor Lesley Furneaux-Cook welcomed the new headquarters. ''It's just fantastic be- cause they are a stable or- ganisation that does so much for the community,'' she said. 188 BURWOOD RD, BURWOOD P: 9747 6039 50 capusle 21mg 7pack 20caplets 60 capusle savings! 2015354K wk38
