Unley Publications : Unley Life Winter 2016
There has never been a more exciting time to live in Unley. For a start, as we show in this issue of Unley Life, we have the most vibrant café culture in all of Adelaide, with an ever-increasing choice of food and wine spots that will add a great deal of warmth and spice to our winter. Their names alone are exciting - Sneaky Pickle, The Flying Trunk and Two Sisters to name just a few. On the civic front, we’ve just celebrated the 40th birthday of Fullarton Park Community Centre - a great community resource if ever there was one. Since 1976 it’s played an integral role in the City of Unley and continues to offer a wide range of programs and services today. For the many thousands of people who’ve enjoyed its many activities, that’s been pret ty exciting. We’re doing our best to be a leader in environmental mat ters, so our Take the Pledge campaign to boost our recycling and composting record is an exciting Council initiative. We’re looking to keep the non-recyclable contamination of our recycling bins down to 10 per cent or less - it’s better for the environment and saving Council thousands of dollars that we can then use on better Council services. But it’s the way the City of Unley is engaging with the international world like it’s never done before that’s most exciting of all. Firstly we had the Ni Hao Unley festival to celebrate our partnership with Adelaide University’s Confucius Institute. The festival was the first of its kind to be held in Unley and while at one level it was a colourful celebration of Chinese culture, it also signified a major move to strengthen our business and education links with China. Secondly, my visit to China (not paid for by Council), representing Regional Development Australia Adelaide Metro, has reinforced my belief that these links are important to the future of Unley. Today we provide a great place for international students to discover Aussie suburban life at its best, not to mention potential business opportunities, and Council can help bridge the cultural and economic divide to help us grasp these opportunities. As I said at the star t, these are exciting times...
