Here is a note about the Yarra Community award given to all of us for our efforts to stop the East West link and save our wonderful Royal Park. A lovely gesture by Yarra. I have included the email advising us of the award.
Dear Award Winners
Many of you may have caught up with the news that Yarra Council awarded the Community Service of the Year Award to EVERYONE who campaigned against the East West Link at their Australia Day citizenship ceremony yesterday.
A wonderful recognition of the hard work, commitment, creativeness and tenacity that everyone contributed to the campaign, and of the gratitude of the Yarra community.
Many thanks to Marion Crooke for thinking of and organising the nomination!
