WHEN IT comes to Australia Day Breakfasts, Chudleigh certainly brings home the bacon.
With visitors from Melbourne and locals from as far away as Longford, the stalwart volunteers were kept on their toes ferrying huge amounts of tucker for the seemingly endless line of eager and hungry visitors.
At Westbury the old hands set to with a will, up to their elbows in bangers and mushroom.
The previous evening in Prospect Vale saw a few hiccups for Council’s Australia Day Award Ceremonies.
At one stage it seemed unlikely that the event would go ahead when the Highlands fire emergency caused a blackout to Prospect Vale and surrounding suburbs.
Then Councillor Tanya King very bravely sang the national anthem (with some help from the Meander Men) when the scheduled performer didn’t turn up.
Things went smoothly from then on with many wonderful Meander Valleyites being recognised for their extraordinary service to community.
