Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : April 8th 2009
8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, April 9, 2009 MB NEWS Burwood's Easter Parade last Saturday. Picture: Courtesy NICK TANTARO Churches parade message LARGE crowds of people turned to watch the tra- ditional story of Easter in Burwood last Saturday. Burwood Council joined with 10 local churches to present a procession along Burwood Rd, followed by the youth play Hosanna: The Rock of Hope. The play, which was per- formed by a group of young people, followed the story of Jesus from the Last Supper through to his resurrection. Burwood Council has also organised some Easter fun for local children. The Easter Bunny will be giving away free chocolate eggs along Burwood Rd un- til April 11. ''Live and interactive en- tertainment is Burwood's signature,'' Burwood Mayor Lesley Furneaux-Cook said. ''Easter is a wonderful celebration that can be en- joyed with an element of fun as well as acknowledging the traditional aspect.'' Call Burwood Council on 9911 9911 for more infor- mation. New wheels for our SES volunteers ASHFIELD-LEICHHARDT SES volunteers are driving around in a new Nissan Navara, thanks to Ashfield Council. It replaces another vehicle in the fleet that had reached the end of its useful life. ''This new rescue vehicle will play a critical role in the SES's fleet of specially equipped and signed vehicles,'' said Ashfield Mayor Ted Cassidy. In 2008, Ashfield Council donated a fuel-friendly Toyota Camry sedan to the SES. SES controller Peter Kaye was delighted with the gift from the council. ''As we have all seen from the recent natural disasters and emergency situations across Australia, you never know when you will need the SES, and it is important that our well-trained volunteers are equally well equipped to handle all situations,'' he said. ''We are very grateful for the ongoing support from Ashfield Council.'' Ashfield-Leichhardt SES has vacancies for volunteers. Full training will be given. The SES trains on Wednesdays at 7.30pm at the rear of 78 Dalhousie St, Haberfield. Phone Mr Kaye on 9797 6852.

Hundreds of people throughout greater Sydney have taken part in our Great Backyard Pumpkin Challenge. Many of the pumpkins will be on display at the Easter Show's Flower and Garden Pavilion from 9.30am until 7.30pm. As a special treat, there will be pumpkin carving demonstrations on April 18 at 10am, noon and 2pm. Thom Bui and her students will do magical things with their carving knives on one of the most versatile vegetables in the patch. On the same day -- the Great Backyard Pumpkin Activity Day -- there will be games, demonstrations, exhibits and more. Each day, however, you will be able to see our truck, decorated in a Cinderella theme by students at Kur- ring-gai Creative Arts High School. The pumpkin truck will also be in the Grand Par- ades. Aside from the giant pumpkin category, there will be novelty category judging: best decorated pumpkin, most unusual shape, the celebrity look- alike and smallest pumpkin (this one must be ripe). The competition and com- munity activity is a partner- ship between the Royal Easter Show and Cumberland and Courier Newspapers.
