Message to residents: From DCM Mayor and Lewiston ward Councillor Duncan Kennington
• ON Friday, December 6, attended a lunch for some of the residents of Butler’s View at the Dublin Institute.
Deputy mayor, Mark Wasley, entertained us with stories and pictures from his adventures on the high seas. Pat Thompson and Ian Telfer organised the event and prepared mountains of food.
It was so delicious I accidentally ate too much main course and couldn’t squeeze in any of the equally delicious looking dessert.
• On Thursday December 12 the Mallala Street Parade was preceded by the official unveiling of a commemorative plaque for the Motorsport Walk of Fame by Clem Smith, OAM and Glen Dix, OAM.
A healthy crowd attended to witness this event and celebrate the history of motorsport in Mallala and the immortalisation of some of the key characters of the sport.
Subsequent to the unveiling we made our way to the Mallala oval. We were treated to a display of cars ranging from Maseratis to an ancient fire engine. I’m now determined to start a savings plan to purchase a Rolls Royce.
According to my graphical calculator I should be able to put a deposit on a second hand one in less than 50 years from now.
• On Friday December 13 the Two Wells street parade was happening.
On this occasion we were treated to an alternative display of vehicles. Of course a cheerful family-friendly atmosphere pervaded the evening.
Walking up and down the street socialising was thirsty work so I stopped in at both of the Two Wells watering holes, which I highly recommend.
• My very best wishes for Christmas and the New Year to all in the District Council of Mallala area. Here’s to a productive 2014 for council.
