Berowra – No Longer In The Sticks

The Opening Of Berowra Community Centre

Extracts from the Hornsby and District Advertiser of September 1980:

Two of Hornsby Shire’s major building projects in the past year were opened by Shire President Cr Don Evans, on Saturday September 6, 1980.

Local residents came out in force to watch the opening of the Brooklyn overpass in the morning and the Berowra Community Centre in the afternoon at 3pm.

Cr Evans spoke on this big occasion and his speech included the following:

Berowra is ‘no longer out in the sticks’
“You’ve heard it said and I’ve heard it said, ‘Oh Berowra’s way out in the end of the Shire –
it’s out in the sticks’
“Today it’s not….”

Were you there on the day?
