Launch of revitalised Sydney Region Branch

Magella Lajoie, NPA Member Sydney Region Branch

I attended the launch of the revitalised Sydney Region branch of the NPA on Wednesday 4 September 2019. It was organised and opened by its new president, David Stead at the Dougherty Function Centre in Chatswood. It was clear that bold, vigorous work by local NPA volunteer members had continued across the Sydney Region including the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury, Ku-ring-gai Chase.
