May­oral chains linked over four decades

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THREE gen­er­a­tions of Su­bi­aco may­ors will cel­e­brate the sub­urb’s rich his­tory at Su­bi­aco Day events on April 10. Mayor Heather Henderson, Tony Costa and Richard Dig­gins have to­gether spent al­most four decades wear­ing the may­oral chains and lead­ing Su­bi­aco Coun­cil. “There are many threads wo­ven through­out Su­bi­aco that we have each been com­mit­ted to over the years,” Mrs Henderson said. “Richard’s coun­cil were the first to start re­tain­ing the built fab­ric and his­tory of Su­bi­aco, they were re­ally in­ter­ested in the past and how to keep and nur­ture it. “They were in­volved in the devel­op­ment of the memo­rial arms, re­la­tion­ship with the Bene­dic­tine Monks com­mu­nity and set­ting up our sis­ter city re­la­tion­ship in Italy; which Tony and I have worked hard to fol­low on with.”
