Paul in Bradfield


Sydney Adventist Hospital Fun Run 'Run for Life'

Paul participated in the Annual Sydney Adventist Hospital Fun Run ‘Run for Life’ at the SAN in Wahroonga. Paul has been a regular participant in the SAN Fun Run since 2009, competing this year in the 5km race.

The event was a great success drawing many people from across Bradfield, including families and young children, to run or walk around the leafy streets of Wahroonga raising money for the new SAN Rehabilitation Unit, a first of its kind for a private hospital in Sydney. The new 48-room Rehabilitation Unit assists patients recovering from joint, cardiac or spinal surgery  and will build on the widely respected service that the SAN provides to residents throughout Bradfield.


Three Day Community Listening Posts

Paul hosted a number of listening posts across the Bradfield electorate last week to meet and greet local residents.The Turnbull Government’s work on energy affordability and reliability, national security and the improved budget situation were foremost among issues raised with Paul, as well as local issues such as increasing population density and congestion.


Support Lindfield Community Forum

Paul attended and spoke at the Lindfield Village Hub Community Forum, held at St Alban’s Church Hall, Lindfield.

The Forum was held by Support Lindfield, which has campaigned for some years in support of intelligent development to regenerate the Lindfield town centre, on the on the western side of the Pacific Highway near Lindfield Station.

For example such a redevelopment could integrate a supermarket, smaller shops including cafes and restaurants, public space, facilities such as a child care centre or library, and a large underground car park. Similar such developments have occurred in locations such as Lane Cove over recent years.

Paul spoke alongside State MP Jonathon O’Dea, Ku-ring-gai Mayor Jennifer Anderson, and a number of local councillors and candidates, voicing his strong support for community engagement in planning and development issues.

This was the fifth Community Forum organised by Support Lindfield, and sponsors included the Turramurra and Lindfield Bendigo Community Bank Branches, Lindfield Chamber of Commerce and Lindfield Pharmacy.
