Town Clock in Croydon Park
Over the years, we have lobbied for a Town Clock in Croydon Park and we are pleased to announce it will become a reality! Burwood Council has given the go-ahead for a clock to be installed on Georges River Rd with signage showing traffic they are in Croydon Park. We have worked with all three councils that govern our main street for clear and distinctive signage for our shopping strip. After 8 years of lobbying, determination and tenacity, this will have been achieved – Antonella Franze – President
