BRIEFLY Flu disruption THE flu hit Burwood councillors like a domino effect last week. All the councillors were off sick and as a result Thursday night's meeting was cancelled, according to a Burwood Council spokeswoman. The meeting was scheduled for Tuesday night but was cancelled as councillors Lesley Furneaux-Cook, Ernest Wong and Christine Donayre were at a Local Government conference. It was then postponed to Thursday and was to have discussed the council's management plan. Help a cause GET behind a great cause by buying a lavender product at the Credit Union Australia Burwood branch during the Lavender for Leukaemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma appeal throughout June. The branch will sell merchandise including teddy bears, lapel pins, lip balm, potpourri and soaps. All funds raised will go towards the Leukaemia Foundation.
