Anu head­lines evening con­cert

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

MY Is­land Home singer Chris­tine Anu will per­form at Clare­mont Park on Novem­ber 7.

Town of Clare­mont coun­cil­lors voted 5-4 to ap­prove the $8000 com­mu­nity con­cert A Night on Bay View, spon­sored by the Western Sub­urbs Weekly, at a meet­ing this month.

Mayor Jock Barker said it was a “spe­cial evening” for res­i­dents to catch up with fam­ily and friends.

Cr Alastair Tul­loch voted against the con­cert, say­ing it was not for Clare­mont to sup­port all of the western sub­urbs.

“We should use (fund­ing) for mul­ti­ple small con­certs, not a con­cert we were told will at­tract 5000 peo­ple,” Cr Tul­loch said.

“I be­lieve it’s not re­spon­si­ble spend­ing of coun­cil money.”

Deputy Mayor Bruce Haynes said an un-tick­eted event in a public space was “the def­i­ni­tion of an out-of-con­trol party”.
