Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 23 2008
INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 24, 2008 9 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au They've got the music in them ZILKA GROGAN Five Dock Music School owners Suzanne Warner and Euan Huggett have big plans. Picture: BRENT McGILVARY ~PP169581 SEATED against a backdrop of acoustic guitars and multi- coloured ukeleles, Suzanne Warner and Euan Huggett are excited about their latest project. The Sydney musicians are the new owners of Five Dock Music School and will use their exten- sive experience to give something back to the community. ''With our background, buying a music school was the perfect purchase to make,'' Ms Warner said. ''Music is what we know and love.'' The couple met 15 years ago when Ms Warner worked in or- chestral management for the Australian Opera and Ballet Or- chestra. She has worked as a percussionist with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and with orchestral management teams here and in New Zealand. Mr Huggett, a clarinet player, has performed with the Aust- ralian Opera and Ballet Orches- tra since 1976. He has taught students pri- vately, in schools and at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Five Dock Music School has about 150 students and the pair has extended the school's tra- ditional emphasis on guitar, vo- cals, keyboards and drums to include wind and brass. The school will hold its first concert at the Canada Bay Club on August 10. Commercial interest eyes off rail bridge SHIREEN KHALIL FIRST Burwood Council and a schoolgirl fought to rid the Croydon railway bridge from bill posters, but now the bridge has been earmarked for commercial advertising. Mayor John Faker is calling on the council to write to the Heritage Council and State Rail requesting a more appropriate use of the bridge such as a mural. Cr Faker said it would be an ideal solution and would virtually link historic the shopping centre at The Strand with the Edwin St shopping precinct. ''Since this bridge is the main gateway to The Strand and given the heritage character of the area, I believe commercial advertising will be degrading,'' Cr Faker said. ''The mural could take inspi- ration from some beautiful his- torical photos of the area.'' The bridge is a favourite target for bill posters and graffiti and Burwood Council is tackling it with a zero-tolerance approach. The council spends more than $150,000 a year to clean graffiti and posters. ''A mural would discourage this antisocial behaviour, uplifting the look of The Strand, one of only two heritage-listed shopping precincts in Sydney,'' Cr Faker said. In March, Croydon Public School Year 4 student Amy Notarangelo, wrote to the council complaining about a poster adver- tising the MA-rated movie Saw IV. ''One of the posters is totally unacceptable for children. I recommend you take them down very soon otherwise some chil- dren will have nightmares,'' she wrote. Cr Faker said he also com- plained about the posters and the council removed them quickly. Options on show ASHFIELD Council is developing a master plan for the revitalisation of the Croydon North precinct around Croydon Railway Station. The precinct includes Hennessy St, Edwin St North and the western part of Elizabeth St. After a stakeholder workshop in March, a series of concept options were developed for the site.
