My apologies to anyone who received multiple email notifications from the league news blog over the last few months. The problem was inconsistent across members and subscribers with some people receiving multiple notifications and some people received none. For this reason, it has taken some time to work out what the issue was (actually, we still don't really know) but the good people at Wix assure me it has been fixed.

We won't know until we try so here we are. Testing 1 2 3.

Hopefully, we have resumed normal transmission. If not, we'll just keep trying until we do.

Your patience is greatly appreciated.

This week, the Hornsby Shire Council letter-dropped the Dangar Island community with brochures entitled 'Help us to plan for the future of Brooklyn'. The brochure -see pics below- provides a link to the discussion paper and online survey. If you are unable to get to your postbox, you can access the discussion paper and online survey by heading to the dedicated page at the Hornsby Shire Council website.

As per our post on 16th April, this is stage 1 of the community engagement by the HSC. Since September 2020, the league committee has been collaborating with the Brooklyn Community Association to research and promote collaborative and inclusive processes on community consultation and engagement. Together both community groups have been in discussions with Hornsby Council on how to provide a circuit breaker to divisive views between our communities.

Please note that an HSC staff member will be available (by appointment only) on 8th May in the Community Hall to assist people with completing the online survey. All details regarding times and contact information are included in the brochure below.


Ana for the League team.
