29 November


It was wonderful to join NSW Arts Minister the Hon John Graham, fellow Councillors and Council staff for the recent unveiling of North Ryde Library’s new shelving and layout.

This upgrade was made possible by a $100,000 State Government grant and it is money that was much needed and very well spent.

There was a cake-cutting ceremony and some great entertainment for the local families and children who also joined us in our celebration.

Libraries are vitally important to our community and provide a wide array of services that fulfil our recreational, leisure and education needs. 


After 100 years at its former location on Blaxland Road, the Ryde Fire and Rescue NSW brigade has moved to a brand-new facility on Coxs Road, North Ryde.

The new station has a staff of 16 highly professional firefighters who will provide 24-hour protection to the local area.

Fire and Rescue NSW is inviting the community to come to the station on Saturday 9 December from 11.00am - 1.00pm to meet the crews and find out more about their expertise in fire, rescue, hazardous materials (hazmat) incidents and medical responses.

There will be an opportunity to look around the station, equipment and fire trucks and enjoy a sausage sizzle while you are there.


I’m encouraging our seniors community to take advantage of a terrific opportunity to attend a free workshop promoting safer driving.

The workshop is being held on Thursday 30 November from 10.00am - 1.00pm at Marsfield Community Centre and will cover topics such as how to be a low-risk driver; the latest changes to road rules (especially roundabouts and merging); what to expect from the Aged Driving Test; and new vehicle technologies and how to use them.

This is a great chance for seniors to test and upgrade their driving skills. 

Yours Sincerely,
