  What’s happening in Croydon Park  


Anzac 2024 5.30am and it was quite balmy and not as cold as I thought. We tend to go early to experience the quietness and feel the spirit of the young fallen soldiers. But this morning the choir was already singing and their voices were splendid in the stillness of the early morning. It may seem the same every year when we go to Anzac but it definitely is not. Hearing the real stories of those who speak on the microphone will always cause tears and amazement to why war ever happened and still does. Being the 150 years for Burwood “1874-2024” it was a delight this year again to hear and see the Australian Defence Force plane Flyover! What an outstanding work of art the 960 handmade crosses correlating to the names on the Arch. They were constructed and painted individually by Scouts with support from their families and leaders; under the guidance of the CPBC, V. President Cheryl Borsak. District Commissioner, Canterbury Vale District Scouts. “ Lest we forget “ Toni Franzè CPBC President. #burwoodpark

Upcoming Changes to the Fair Work Act

Superannuation: From 1 January 2024, the National Employment Standards will include an express right to superannuation contributions. By including superannuation as a right under the NES will allow employees, unions and the Fair Work Ombudsman to bring their own proceedings to recover unpaid superannuation contributions as well as associated penalties as a breach of the NES.

Unpaid parental leave: The parental leave provisions of the Fair Work Act have been amended to provide greater flexibility for parents to use their leave entitlements.

Employee authorised deductions: From 30 December 2023, employees will be able to authorise their employers to make recurring or regular deductions from their salary for amounts that vary, provided the authorisation is in writing and the deductions are principally for the benefit of the employee (and not the employer).

Protection for migrant workers: The Fair Work has been amended to try to ensure that all migrant workers are entitled to the benefits of that Act, including the NES, regardless of their immigration status and whether they have a legal right to work in Australia.

Welcome CPBC 2023!

Thank you to the new CPBC Board volunteering their time for 2023.

As we know it has been a very difficult time in the past 3. years.

In 2014 CPBC won a prestigious Award for collaboration of Business with Community; against large Chambers of Commerce, and put Croydon Park on the map. This recognition could not have happened without the tireless volunteer work of all the Board Members since the first meeting in 2001. 

The CPBC always believed that the interaction of the community is a very important part of Small Business to survive. This collaboration helps Small Business to be long standing and creates a village atmosphere with a welcomed customer service with a smile.

An Award was given to the first Board Members for the pioneering work for the Croydon Park Business Community and setting the foundation for the Croydon Park Chamber of Commerce.

Since then Croydon Park Business Chamber as it is now called has Awarded:

  • Citizen Of The Year.
  • Road Runner Of The Year.
  • In Appreciation Of Support To CPBC For Business and Community.

This brings me now to tell you that the 2023 Burwood Council Mayor’s Business Commendation Awards are being offered for the Burwood Local Government Area. So all CPBC Members, it’s time to be recognised!

Old From The Past 

The last 20 years have truly been a wild ride. You might know Boost Juice as it is today, with 680+ stores across 13 countries, but this didn’t happen overnight.

Throughout my journey I have had many people ask me…’what did you do to create that level of success?’

Along the way I’ve had my fair share of wins, losses and lessons, and uncovered plenty of secrets I wish I knew when I started out.

I’m ready to share my story, along with all of the lessons and secrets I collected along the way, with you at The Entrepreneurs’ Unconvention on Thursday 10 March 2022.

I hope my story will resonate with business owners who think unconventionally and march to the beat of their own drum.

I can’t wait to share all of this with you.

See you there,

Janine Allis
