Anzac Day this year was special for many because people were able to go to commemorations and services as they have for many years before COVID.
Thank you to those who thanked us for our coverage. It was lovely to hear from you. Our journalists cover Anzac Day as an essential community service and we always strive to be as comprehensive with our reporting as we can.
This week in the newsroom, we covered a variety of different stories. I love how diverse the news is in the St George and Shire areas. It makes our job very interesting.
Murray Trembath tells us Terry O'Hara of Kareela, the immediate past president of Touring Old Farts (TOFS), is encouraging men to get out for the day and explore places of interest throughout Sydney and close regional areas.
Murray also reports Ritchies Supa IGA supermarket at Taren Point is set for a $4.5 million upgrade, good news for those who want to support local business. The artists' impressions certainly look impressive.
Merryn Porter tells us about the new mural painted by Aboriginal students, unveiled at Hazelhurst Arts Centre, Gymea, as part of the exhibition, Wuliwulawala: Dharawal Women Sharing Stories.
And finally, from the 'don't try this at home' file, Merryn tells us what happened when a group of seniors attempted to Zumba their way into the record books as part of Sutherland Shire's Seniors Festival. Leader photographer Chris Lane was there to catch the action. I almost tore a hamstring just reading the article!
Well, until next week, I hope you enjoy your Sunday read, and as always, thank you for reading the Leader and for subscribing to the newsletter. I am sincere when I say our entire team appreciates your continued support of our journalism.
Now, where is that ice pack!
