The above newspaper was first published in August 1971 by the Berowra Progress Association. It was a free 8 to 10 page (44 x 31cm) monthly publication and, as you can see, distributed to all local suburbs.
This paper carried local news, also adverts for local businesses, details of community activities, usually with a selection of related black & white photographs.
One regular column was ROUNDABOUT – with Mary which reported on some of the activities of local residents. The following is from the p4 January 1972 column.
‘..Christmas parties are all behind us -the giant Christmas tree at the Crossroads and a visit from ‘Skippy’ to the Village Shopping Centre -a busy time and now many local families are enjoying their annual holidays. Most of the holiday makers headed for favourite haunts on the North Coast -South West Rocks, Lake Cathie etc..’
Who can recall the giant Christmas tree at the Crossroads? Do you have a photo to share please?
The ‘Skippy’ visit to Berowra features in the blog of January 16th 2015.
Do you know how long this Newspaper was published?
These days Berowra is quieter for the next few weeks while families go away for holidays.
