Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : August 27 2008
10 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, August 28, 2008 MB NEWS BRIEFLY Dig deep for Vinnies EXPECT a knock on the door this weekend from one of 1200 volunteers supporting the annual Vinnies Doorknock appeal. The appeal aims to raise over $100,000 to support the St Vincent de Paul Society's work across Sydney and the Blue Mountains. Higher bills over the winter months combined with the harsh economic climate, housing stress, rising petrol prices and interest rates are seeing increased calls on the society for assistance. Seeing tax helps VISION Australia has collaborated with the Australian Taxation Office to make the tax help service more readily available to people who are blind or who have impaired vision and are on low incomes. The service is provided by accredited ATO volunteers working out of the Vision Australia Enfield centre. Phone Vision Australia on 1300 847 466 to make an appointment. It is available until October 31. Carers' support group CARING for the disabled or frail is not always easy. The Inner West Carers' Support Group meets on the third Thursday of the month at the Burwood Community Centre, Belmore Rd Burwood, from 1.30pm-3pm. Activities include guest speakers, discussions and outings. Afternoon tea is provided. Phone Kyeran on 9744 3955 for details. State awards tipped THE pay and conditions of council employees could be covered by a state rather than Federal award if a recent Queensland case is followed in NSW, the United Services Union has predicted. The Federal Court recently found that Etheridge Council workers in Queensland were not covered by WorkChoices legislation. Track baby names THE most popular baby names since government records began can now be tracked on a State Government website. Parents can browse through the top 10 names for each year since 1900 at www.nsw.gov.au. Last year the most popular baby names were Jack, William, Joshua and Isabella, Ella and Emily. In 1900 the popular names included William, John, George, Leslie, Mary, Dorothy and the unisex Sydney. John and Mary have been favourites since white colonisation. Visit www.bdm.nsw.gov.au for details on family history and birth, death and marriage certificates.
