SUPPORT THE EXPANSION OF BALLAARAT PARK

Local residents and businesses are joining forces to call for additional open space at Ballaarat Park in Pyrmont. Pyrmont and Ultimo are in desperate need of additional park land.  Today, as the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority exits the area and transfers oversight of the area to the City of Sydney, the opportunity exists for the City of Sydney to expand the footprint of Ballaarat Park and to embrace open space and park land by closing off the streets and replacing asphalt with grass. Local residents and businesses are calling on the City to seize the opporuntity to expand much needed park land on the Sydney Harbour foreshore. Find out about the community campaign to expand Ballaarat Park over some of Mudgee’s best wines at the pop up Pyrmont Festival event.

SUPPORT SYDNEY’S LAST INDEPENDENT COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER: Don’t Make Your News Limited.

Thursday May 21 also marks the end of the City Hub’s six week long crowd funding campaign. Nearly $20,000 has been pledged to date. The City Hub is Sydney’s last remaining independent community newspaper, providing vital coverage for the inner city. In 1995 the first issue of the City Hub hit the streets vowing to “print the news and raise hell”. Over the last two decades we have promoted more than a half million performances, events and shows. We have broken news and offered alternative views to Sydney’s mainstream media outlets. We are not your everyday paper.

A range of local businesses have contributed perks including free dinners, theatre tickets and cinema passes. Wine from some of Mudgee’s best wineries will be available with proceeds from the Pyrmont Festival Pop Up event donated to the City Hub’s crowd funding campaign. A range of perks can be purchased on the night. By purchasing a perk, you will become a member of the HUB CLUB, ensuring that Sydney’s last independent community newspaper can continue printing the news and raising hell.
