    The Age Looks at Station Pier

    An article in The Age’s Spectrum section on 11 July highlighted the poor state of the Waterfront Place and Station Pier environs. Headlined "Welcome to Waste", the column drew a forlorn picture of the area. It prompted two Letters to the Editor from local residents (under "The sorry state...") on July 12 and a further letter (under "A sad, but true, image") from BCNA President Eddie Micallef on July 13.

    Members are encouraged to consider writing a letter to the Age. A letter should be in your own words. It could include mention of a planned, strategic redevelopment of the Waterfront Place precinct. Letters should be sent to the Letters Editor at The Age at letters@theage.com.au.

    Support for Local Food Businesses

    With the introduction of the new lockdown, the BCNA is again encouraging members to support local food businesses by getting meals delivered or picking them up (ie take away). Clicking on the links in our earlier news item will take you to the websites of local businesses.
