Glebe is an inner Sydney suburb notable for its distinct village character, heritage streetscapes, attractive parks and foreshores and strong sense of community. The Glebe Society's aims are to protect our heritage, encourage a sense of community and create a better future for all residents of Glebe and Forest Lodge.
In response to the current Covid19 situation in Glebe/Forest Lodge, members and others are asked to consider making a financial donation to Glebe Youth Service (GYS). GYS is providing food and other essential items to families who are positive or who are having to isolate.
In May this year two Superb Fairywrens were spotted at Glebe Point, the first confirmed sighting since 2016
Blackwattle Bay opens Glebe up to the sky and water, and gives the suburb a wonderful aspect and the opportunity for water sports like rowing, dragon boating and canoeing. The incredible popularity of the foreshore walk is due to its proximity to the water and the sense of space and relaxation that it brings. All this is threatened by the Blackwattle Bay Precinct Plan.
Why not try one? Each walk is based on a theme: Politicians, Publicans and Sinners, The Pocket Parks of Glebe, Glebe Waterfront Walk, Early Glebe Architects, Late Victorian Streetscapes, The Rocks of Glebe Point, and Sydney University – the early Science precinct.
The Glebe Society’s 2021 AGM will be held at 11 am on 10 October by Zoom. All members are welcome. Nominations for membership of the Management Committee should be submitted by 1 October.
