Campbell Community Cares

The tiny rural communities of Nerrigundah, Cadgee, Belowra & Tin Pot (comprising 40 properties) are situated 20km West of Bodalla on the NSW south coast & were devastated by last week’s fires.
Approximately 26 homes/properties were totally destroyed, leaving those residents with nothing.
Campbell ACT is hoping to embrace these communities with love & care by providing cash assistance directly to them. John Cowan ( one of the residents and also a NSW RFS volunteer), is going to match $ for $ the first $5000 we raise, to help them back on their feet.
A trivia night will be held at The Pedlar on Saturday 18 January (THANK YOU – tickets are sold out!)  If you missed out, contact us or the Pedlar quickly as tickets for the second one are selling fast!!!
A massive silent auction is now planned & underway, with incredible items such as 2 seats at a small private dinner with Ricky Stuart already donated!
A big community fun day in Hassett Park is planned during the Australia Day weekend in January, coinciding with the finalising of all the silent auctions!
We’re aiming to raise $50,000 for these people who have lost everything!
YOU can help by …
 • Leaving your donation at The Pedlar on Constitution Avenue

• Participating in the silent auction .. online bids will also be encouraged!  (email events@vantagestrata.com.au to be added to the list for information on the auction)

• Donating an item to the silent auction  (please drop off items to Vantage strata, unit 90/43 Constitution Ave or The Pedlar or to Greenwich building manager’s office)

• Passing this information around on social media and to contacts who may wish to donate goods and services to the auction

Australian War Memorial: Early Works Community Consultation 24 July

​Purdon Planning has been engaged by the Australian War Memorial to assist with community engagement and approvals for the Early Works component of the Australian War Memorial Redevelopment.

The first stage of early works includes extension to the Memorial’s underground car park. Additionally, a temporary on site car park will be constructed at the rear of Poppy’s Cafe, to provide an area for construction and contractor parking. Currently, all early works will be within the Memorial site. Once the Memorial expansion has concluded, the temporary car parking area is intended to be restored to a landscaped communal area for all visitors.

Below is a flyer which has been delivered to residents around the Memorial. It includes an invitation to a drop-in session to be held on Wednesday the 24th of July 2019 at the BAE Systems Theatre, Australian War Memorial. The Memorial invites the Campbell Residents Association to attend.
