Community Dinner hosted by Pyrmont Community Centre (source: Mary Mortimer)

The Pyrmont Community Centre is now using the Harold Park Community Hall at the Tramsheds while their centre is being renovated. On the last Friday of each month at 6 pm they hold a community dinner. All community members of Pyrmont, Forest Lodge and Glebe and their friends and families are welcome to attend.

I attended the August dinner, along with some other Glebe Society members. It was a delightful evening with good company and good food.

There was even entertainment with Emily Turner and Ian Warwick performing a vignette from Make Believe, their show at the Sydney Fringe Cabaret Club.

The next community dinner will be at 6 pm on 30 September. The meal is prepared by volunteers and provided free of charge; however, a donation is requested. BYO drinks. Bookings are desirable. To book, contact Mary Mortimer on I hope to see a good Glebe contingent joining with our friends from the east.

Another activity that might be of interest is the Glebe Art Society’s Glebe Foreshore Art Walk & Plein Air Painting, which is happening from 10 am to 4 pm Sunday 25 September. This is a great opportunity for anyone taking a walk or a slow jog along the water to see artists at work. For more information see
