MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, May 7, 2009 5 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Students Daniel Navan, and Melita and Jack Georgidis, prepare for the fun of Russell Lea Infants' School fete this Saturday. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP273619 Helping hands make the fete great See more pictures More photographs available at www.innerwestweekly.com.au DESPITE gloomy economic times, local businesses have rushed to support the annual Russell Lea Infants' School fete. Businesses in Five Dock, Drummoyne, Haberfield and Wareemba have donated a range of goods and services for auction or raffle on fete day this Saturday from 10am to 4pm. The fete promises to be bigger and better than ever and is a chance to grab a beautiful gift for Mother's Day. There will be a giant slide, great rides, a free animal-petting farm, jumping castles and a disco tent. Fabulous prizes to be won on the day include a 50-inch Samsung plasma TV, donated by Whitfords of Five Dock, sumptuous seafood platters from Ocean Foods on Lyons Rd, and dinners from Dedes Restaurant in the Sydney Rowing Club. One lucky visitor can bid for a garden design plan from Landshapers. There will be live music by MA, demonstrations by the Sydney Rowing Club, face-painting, games, a barbecue and cafe. Russell Lea Infants' School is in Lithgow St, Russell Lea. What wins: the park or the houses? SHIREEN KHALIL Should the park be expanded? Tell us your thoughts at www.innerwestweekly.com.au THE call to have a greener Burwood may be at the cost of demolishing three houses. At Burwood Council's meeting last week Mayor Lesley Furneaux- Cook had a mayoral minute to demolish three unoccupied houses next to Jackson Park in Enfield to form part of the park. She also had another option for the houses to be used by the community. The council bought the proper- ties at 343, 345 and 347 Georges River Rd more than 20 years ago with the view of incorporating them into the existing park, ac- cording to the mayor. Greens councillor Christine Donayre, who supported the first option, said the properties were dilapidated, abandoned and a danger to the community. ''I support the mayor's call for these properties to be demolished and transferred to open space for inclusion into Jackson Park,'' she said. Burwood Council has the lowest ratio of open space to residents in NSW, Cr Donayre said. ''With the possible construction of 20-storey buildings within the Burwood town centre area, with no provision for green open space, the expansion of Jackson Park is needed,'' she said. But Liberal councillor John Sidoti said that last November the council had a workshop to look at its properties. ''The plan was that they (the houses) be used for community use, such as community functions or a childcare centre . . . you can't just plan something then turn everything around and say we are going to use it for a park. It wasn't part of a plan,'' Cr Sidoti said. He said demolishing the houses would add to the council's $3.5 million deficit. ''It will definitely set the council back financially -- a park won't bring in income.'' The council has called for a report on the costs of both options.

Recent media reports have highlighted that some types of guttering such as high front guttering, if poorly designed and not installed correctly, can potentially lead to rainwater damage to buildings. If you are about to install new guttering in your home or business, you should check that it is designed in accordance with the Building Code of Australia and is made to Australian Standards. While the installation of guttering does not form part of the mandatory inspection requirement of Council or a private certifier, the installation should be completed by an appropriately licensed professional.
