Unley Publications : Unley Life Autumn 2017
Australia Day marked a wonderful way to start the year. Firstly, it’s a day when we welcome new citizens to Australia, through the citizenship ceremony held by each council. For me it’s a particularly heartwarming and very patriotic event, one that reminds me how much Australian citizenship is valued. Then we have our own Australia Day awards, where we honour Unley citizens who have made wonderful contributions to our community. And after all that we have a great street party in Oxford Terrace. As I said, what better way to start the year? Speaking of awards, one of Unley’s long-serving volunteers has been honoured with a Queen’s Award for Volunteer Service for his work in aged care. Myrtle Bank resident John Dennis has volunteered with the City of Unley’s Community Visitors Scheme for more than 15 years. At the age of 70, John is living proof that age is no barrier if you want to join him as a volunteer. Once again Unley was a proud stage start host of the Santos Tour Down Under (TDU), and the huge turnout of local bike enthusiasts again demonstrated how bike-friendly Unley is. As Terry Tysoe from the Unley Bicycle User Group says, Unley is one of the most cycle friendly council areas in the state with its protected bike paths and 40km speed limit providing a safer environment for bike riders. The TDU, along with the ever-successful Unley Gourmet Gala now in its 17th year, acts as a great oppor tunity to show off Unley to more people, especially Unley’s picturesque and calm streets that link up to many great cafés and shopping precincts. In this issue of Unley Life we also celebrate our involvement in the Adelaide Fringe, for which the City of Unley sent its residents on a trip down memory lane with a Doris Day and Marilyn Monroe tribute show. And we report on the growing strength of women’s football, as seen through the eyes of Goodwood Saints player Mim Potter. Due to the enthusiasm of players like her, Council is now looking at upgrades to Goodwood Oval that recognise the increasing number of women playing football and cricket - just one more way that Council is committed to providing quality facilities for the Unley community.
