Winter is only a few days away. The seasons fly past! However we are fortunate to have so many activities around town to warm our hearts and minds, and to keep us on our toes mentally and physically. Top of my bucket list is a visit to the Art Gallery of NSW to view the Archibald, Wynne & Sulman paintings, followed by a visit to the State Library of NSW to view the World Press Photo exhibition. Both of these are relatively easy venues to get to using public transport. Perhaps you might consider an outing to these places.
Or if you don’t feel up to venturing too far, why not join in the Hub’s latest initiatives:
Coffee Catchups are back from next Tuesday. A weekly catchup with other Hubsters from 10 to 11am at Botanica café (opposite Waverton Station). Each week a member of the Hub board will be in attendance to meet and greet you. Also starting Wednesday is 4-5pm drinkies at the new Quattro Bar (alongside the station and next to Capo Pizza in Bay Rd). Again, a Hub board member will be on hand to introduce you to other Hub members that you may not already know. We are trialling these events over the winter months and if successful we will continue with them. So come along and enjoy yourself.
Some other June activities that Hub members may like to consider attending: From tonight until 18 June Sydney lights up with Vivid and there are so many activities tied in with this that it is insane! Check it out. If you are concerned about moving around the city in the dark, there are plenty of tours you can go on. And then there is the Sydney Film Festival on 8 to 19 June. I have already booked tickets to see the new Baz Luhrmann film Elvis (click to play trailer) and to Return to Seoul. Again, so much is on offer – something for everybody.
Last Monday I led the 9.30am out-of-area walk. I called it a mystery walk because I had no real idea where we were heading. As it was raining we decided to take the train to Wynyard, then walk under shop awnings to Central where we took the light rail to Randwick. We arrived there to a break in the weather, so we walked a km or 2 to Coogee Beach. This was followed by a delicious lunch in a small cafe while we watched the rain returning. For this coming Monday I was planning a trip to Penrith to walk the heritage trail there (a full day outing). However the forecast is for rain (again!) so I have kept the walk closer to home – we will walk the Randwick heritage trail – weather permitting. You can see a photo of our small walking group in the rain at Coogee on the Hub’s FaceBook page.
In my message last week I suggested you do yourself a favour and get along to the new Quattro Wine Bar. I know many of you have checked it out and enjoyed the experience. The pic below was kindly submitted by Usha G showing her Hub friends enjoying the food and wine.
Meet at Waverton Station take the train to Town Hall, walk through QVB and down Market Street and across Pyrmont Bridge, continue down Union Street and turn right into Harris street. Walk down to water and coffee at the Zebra Lounge. (9.30 walkers can leave here for light rail at John Street Square). Walk through Pirrama Park to Jones Bay Wharf. Follow Pirrama Road to Pyrmont Bridge (light rail to Central if you wish) or walk across the bridge and back to Town Hall for a train back to Waverton. Walking about 1:15 all up maximum of 2:00 hours with travel and coffee. Easy grade (some stairs down only) Steve to lead
Meet Luke at Waverton station at 9,30am for a train & tram ride to Randwick. From there we will walk a heritage trail (8-10km)….something special! Bring your face mask, Opal card, refreshments, and an umbrella as the weather forecast is for showers (lets hope not). If raining, please check your email around 8.30 to see if the walk will proceed.
Our first Hub Happy Hour will be held from 4pm at Cafe Quattro which is right next door to Waverton Station. It an opportunity for people to meet in a convivial atmosphere and try out the latest addition to the Waverton area with either a wine or a beer. Visitors are welcome.
Under the Local Government Act 1993, following the commencement of each term of council all NSW councils must prepare an integrated suite of plans to guide its planning and reporting - this is known as Integrated Planning & Reporting (IP&R). Among other plans it includes the Community Strategic Plan which is to shape the North Sydney LGA’s future. It is both an aspirational vision and a practical plan and seeks to address four key questions:
Where are we now?
Where do we want to be in 10-20 years’ time?
How will we get there?
How will we know we have arrived?
North Sydney Council is in the final stage of reviewing the North Sydney Community Strategic Plan - feedback closes 8 June.
Jenny will give an overview of the draft North Sydney Community Strategic Plan.
The meeting will be held at Piato Restaurant 123 Blues Point Road, McMahons Point at 7:00 am for 7:15 a.m. start.
