More cyclists through Unley

I notice that Mitcham Council will building a cycle path to connect to the busy cycle path along Rugby Street in Unley; on route to the Adelaide CBD. A great outcome for the cyclists. Rugby Street is already a busy cycle route and the Mitcham road works will generate more cyclists passing through Unley. I read of a forecast 60% increase in cyclists from Mitcham. What we need to do is review this cycle route through Unley to ensure that there are no issues with the forecast higher volume. Safety for all - pedestrians, vehicles and cyclists - needs to be our top concern. There must be a common sense approach to traffic priorities ie. who gets right of way.

Help Janet make food bags

Hyde Park resident Janet Jenkins is helping to wage the war on plastic bags. She buys fabric from op-shops and makes re-usable bags that can be used when shopping; especially to carry fruit and vegetables. After using cloth bags for 16 years, she now intends to make more and give them away. What a great initiative and generosity on her part. Janet is asking for volunteers to form a working group to make the bags to get more out into the community. She says that there are tasks for non-sewers. Why not volunteer to help Janet. Her details are: Janet Jenkins email

Driving change at Unley

I want to see a greener and more sustainable Unley . More street trees! I support replacing old poorly performing trees with new trees that are better suited to our environment. Replacing 1 tree with 2+ has been my vision and my passion. This has already started! More planting of the verges! Preferably by residents who will adopt and maintain the new green verge. Joining the war on waste! My passion. I want to help fix the waste crisis in Unley, a crisis impacting all Councils. Driving real change at Unley Council! My words, my passion and my commitment to all Unley residents. To get real change, Vote 1 Bob Schnell #Mayor4Unley at the election. #Unley #Mayor Written & authorised by Bob Schnell, 10 Halmon Ave, Everard Park 5035

Ask for Annie

Just ask for Annie . The attached photo was found on the back of the Ladies toilet door in a pub in Scotland. What a fantastic idea! I understand that this arrangement is common in Townsville, Australia where you ask for Angela . I would love to see this become available at every pub across Australia, even in #Unley. It would be nice to have just one name (to ask for) across Australia.

Unley honey

It’s fantastic news that #Coles has now agreed to sell only authentic AUSTRALIAN #honey. In the past, Coles was selling honey of dubious origin eg. Chinese syrups blended with Australian honey. I joined a community petition to stop this fraud. I’m a keen advocate to buy local and shop local, especially in #Unley. As #Mayor of Unley, I will be a strong voice to promote local businesses and encourage locals to buy and shop local. Imagine the change that we all can make!
