Work to re­store his­toric house not recog­nised

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

THE re­port in last week’s edi­tion head­lined “Dig­ging up dirt on Dalkeith site” brought back mem­o­ries of Gal­lop House when it was an aban­doned and con­demned wreck of a build­ing in the 1960s.

Had it not been for the vi­sion and fore­sight of Leslie and Bill An­der­son and the ar­range­ment they made with Ned­lands coun­cil to re­store the house to its former glory, the build­ing would no longer ex­ist.

It is un­for­tu­nate that there is no recog­ni­tion any­where of their ef­forts, and ev­ery­one seems to have for­got­ten their con­tri­bu­tion.

That is sad. Buzz Crad­dock,
