Recent Reflection: Lunch time Walk in Boundary Street

One of the advantages of working around West End is the opportunity to walk down Boundary Street and share in the spirit that keeps the suburb so exciting.Today was quite an adventure when I discovered that our Peoples Park has been fenced off for some reno work and new landscaping. The queue for the weekly food distribution by Community Friends looked a bit anxious as there usual meeting spot was out of bounds.

A quick call to council and the friendly staff at Helen Abrahams office provided all the information we needed to calm the masses.I will attempt to provide regular images as the work progresses.

There is quite a bit of activity going on at the moment with some funky developments at the Absoe market space and I also paid a visit to some of the local graffiti shrines.

With my trusty phone in hand I grabbed a few images for those who never get to see the sights in West EndWest End Community Association West End Community House West End Story Spaces West End Uniting ChurchThe West End MagazineWestender
