Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : May 6th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, May 7, 2009 9 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au It's a dead-set success John Bertuzzi, owner of Reflections cafe at Rookwood Cemetery, which has opened and (inset) how naming the cafe captured readers' imaginations. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~P0639055 FIONA BRADY ''THE coffee's to die for'', jokes one of the customers at Rookwood Cemetery's new cafe, Reflections. With its 180-degree views across the cemetery, the new eatery has got the thumbs up from visitors, tourists and local businesspeople, cafe owner John Bertuzzi says. ''Sometimes, people have driven a long way to get here to attend a funeral and they really need a place to stop and have a break,'' Mr Bertuzzi said. ''We serve breakfasts and lunches -- everything from your bacon and eggs, to fish and chips, and coffee and cakes. ''And there's plenty of parking. ''We also do functions.'' Despite being the southern hemisphere's biggest necropolis, until last year Rookwood hadn't had a permanent cafe since the 1960s. But in January 2008, the Anglican and General Cemetery Trust announced it was building a new cafe and invited Inner-West Weekly readers to come up with a suitable name. Within days, our mailbox was bulging with readers' imaginative suggestions -- but Reflections at Rookwood was the most popular choice. The finishing touches to the cafe and flower shop have just been completed, although both have been operating since Christmas. ''Before this, you could just get a cold drink, so a cafe was really needed,'' regular customer Harry Johnston-Lord, from Friends of Rookwood, said. ''It sells good tucker at good prices.'' And from May 16, there's yet another reason to visit Reflections at Rookwood -- a sculpture walk. ''We are so pleased with how popular the cafe has become that we decided to create Rookwood's first outdoor sculpture walk in its gardens,'' said Natalie Gane, from Rookwood Anglican and General Cemetery Trust. ''What better place to support our local artists than by giving them a chance to have their works displayed in such a unique and, for many of our artists, personal, setting.'' Special service on Mother's Day ROOKWOOD Memorial Gardens will hold a special service on Mother's Day in memory of mothers and grandmothers who have died. The service starts at 10am in the South Chapel, in Memorial Ave within the Rookwood Necropolis. ''Our annual service enables families to share what can be a difficult and poignant occasion with others who understand their loss,'' Rookwood Memorial Gardens' family service manager Rosanna Kleckin said. Light refreshments and tea and coffee will be served at the con- clusion of the service. On-site parking is available. Funeral help in four languages A BROCHURE that provides fam- ilies with essential information on arranging and paying for a funeral and raises awareness of their consumer rights and responsibilities is to be translated into Arabic, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese. Fair Trading Minister Virginia Judge said the brochures, which would be available from June 1, were designed to protect families from culturally and linguistically- diverse communities when they are arranging a funeral. The translated brochures will be made available to funeral direc- tors, community organisations and hospitals. KARATE FOR ALL AGES Fun, Fitness, Confidence & Discipline JOIN NOW!
