Dear Sir, We read the article about the Hunters Hill's barber who has been accused of discrimination for refusing to cut a girl's hair. As your article stated, the barber was trained to cut men's hair is not qualified as a...
Dear Sir, I write to you to thank Billbergia Pty Ltd for saving Ryde Ex–Services Memorial & Community Club, when under administration back in 2015 – 2016 -  and now. It seems the present board for one reason or another does not want to...
Dear Sir, Some friends and I run a pop up cocktail bar in Hunters Hill out of Le Village. Each week we let a young person play music for a couple of hours, usually a singer/ guitarist but sometimes...

Dear Sir, Lunar New Year is a fabulous time to get together with family and friends, to explore Sydney’s multicultural heritage and celebrate the Year of the Dog.  This is a time for Sydney to celebrate Chinese New Year, from fireworks and glowing Lunar Lanterns to festivities in Chinatown,...
Dear Sir, Hunters Hill Council is absolutely right to be concerned by the Liberal State Government’s law that deprives local government of any significant decision-making power for development applications (TWT page 7 January 31, 2018).  These new so-called Planning Panels make the final decisions in what are local matters. That is, after the local Council...
