2 Message from the Mayor Summer has never been better in the City of Rockdale.

Throughout the past weeks, the beach has been swamped by eager residents and tourists keen to soak up the summer sun. The New Year’s Eve fireworks at Lady Robinsons Beach went off with a bang and I am pleased to report that the crowd, which was largely made up of families, enjoyed the splendid evening.

Australia Day celebrations were held at Dolls Point, which, as in previous years, drew a large crowd of enthusiastic and patriotic residents who enjoyed spending our Nation’s most important day at one of our most historically significant locations - Botany Bay.

Lady Robinsons Beach is the jewel in our City’s crown, attracting people from all over the country to enjoy its glistening waters, white sands and Mediterranean feel.

3 It is for this reason that I encourage all visitors to the beach to ensure they look after it, take their rubbish with them and remind others to be mindful of protecting this delicate natural resource.

As we enter the final weeks of summer I hope you will be able to come and visit before the cooler months arrive, it certainly won’t disappoint!

Councillor Bill Saravinovski, Mayor 4 King Street Place Roars Into Life King Street Place Rockdale will come alive once again for Council’s annual Chinese New Year celebrations on Saturday 20 February and everybody is invited to come and witness this magical display of colour, tradition and energy.

This vibrant and fascinating celebration will include cultural displays from local Chinese performers and musicians, cooking demonstrations, Chinese art displays and of course the quintessential dancing lions will parade down the Princes Highway for a demonstration in King Street Place to bring good luck and fortune to the people of Rockdale City.

Celebrations will kick off at 10am at Rockdale Town Hall and will conclude in King Street Place. For more information call Council’s Customer Service Centre on 9562 1666.

King Street Place will host a pride of dancing lions for Council’s annual Chinese New Year celebrations.

5 Botany Bay Glistens for New Aussies The mood was electric as 70 newly sworn Australians made their emotional pledge of allegiance to Australia as Botany Bay glistened before them in the summer sun.

Mayor Bill Saravinovski said he was delighted to welcome the new Australians to Rockdale, and reflected on the privilege of having Australia Day celebrations on Botany Bay.

Memories Just a Mouse Click Away Do you remember what Brighton Le Sands used to look like during the 1950s? Can you recall the old trams that dawdled up and down Bay Street in Rockdale, or would you like to know what Rockdale was like during the war?

These answers can be found in Council’s online historic photo catalogue which is currently under development. Council’s Local History Services Specialist, Kirsten Broderick, is encouraging local residents to visit the online catalogue and discover their past.

“Council has thousands of images, some as old as photography itself, that illustrate our City’s vibrant and rich past. Photos are critical historical resources that provide information for people conducting formal research, creating family trees, or those who are simply curious about the history of their local area. By providing these images online, we are giving people access to a wealth of historical information that has remained largely hidden away for decades,” Kirsten said.

For more information call Kirsten on 9562 1811. Photos can be viewed at www.rockdale.nsw.gov.au/library then click on Library Catalogue and then Local History Photos.

11 Grand Opening for Grand Soccer Club Scores of enthusiastic soccer fans flocked to Bicentennial Park for the official opening of the Rockdale City Suns new sportsground on Saturday 12 December.

Mayor Bill Saravinovski, along with The Hon. Councillor Shaoquett Moselmane, joined Club President, Zak Agioski, in announcing the official opening.

The Mayor praised the efforts of Zak and the Club for hosting such a “remarkable event” which included traditional Macedonian dancing during the official opening ceremony, followed by a friendly soccer match between the Suns’ first grade team and visiting team, Melbourne Preston Lions.

An exhibition match was held between the Rockdale City Suns and Melbourne Preston Lions teams during the official opening of the Suns’ new sportsground.

12 “The Rockdale City Suns have given our community so much over the years, by providing our City’s youth with professional soccer coaching, fitness mentoring and incredibly fine leadership. The new clubhouse at Bicentennial Park is befitting for such a determined, community driven club,” the Mayor said.

Go Back in Time with Bexley The suburb of Bexley has origins that date as far back as the 1850s. Back then Bexley was largely reserved for timber gatherers, local inns and butchers. However, the establishment of the railway line from Redfern to Hurstville in 1884 changed Bexley forever. It opened up the suburb and led to an influx of new residents, businesses and trades, making it one of the most vibrant and prosperous areas in the St George region.

On Monday 15 March, Council will host a free history talk on Bexley at the Bexley Library. Council’s Local History Services Specialist, Kirsten Broderick, will talk on the history of Bexley and present a range of photographs that highlight the development of the area and the many changes it has witnessed over the past 150 years. The talk will be followed by a free afternoon tea and an opportunity for people to ask questions and view the library’s collection of historic photographs of Bexley.

Time Monday 15 March, 2.30pm – 4pm Venue Bexley Library, 499 Forest Road, Bexley Bookings Bexley Library 9562 1813, 10am – 6pm Mon-Fri 15 Dob in a Dumper The Hawthorne Street Natural Area in Ramsgate is under attack from illegal dumpers and Council is putting these environmental vandals on notice with active patrolling of the area to stop this unwanted behaviour.

“As a community we need to band together to stop illegal dumpers destroying our bushland. Areas like the Hawthorne Street Natural Area are vital assets to our community and the wildlife that inhabit them.

“If you see people leaving waste and unwanted materials in our parks and natural areas, call Council on 9562 1666 and provide us with as many details as possible. Together we can stop these people ruining our bushland,” Mayor Bill Saravinovski said.

16 Remembering our Heroes Together Visiting French scouts and guides from the Somme region in France, joined by our own local scout group, gathered at the Rockdale War Memorial on the Princes Highway to remember the Australian and French soldiers who fought bravely during one of the bloodiest battles of World War 1 at the Battle of the Somme.
