The Beecroft-Cheltenham Civic Trust was later formally incorporated under the NSW Incorporation Act (1984) on 5 December 1988. The Trust has achieved much since its foundation, to put the case to Federal, State and Local Governments, as well as to Statutory Authorities, for the survival of what remains of our passive and defenceless natural beauty, and for citizens who wish to continue to enjoy this natural beauty and other desirable civic amenities.
The Trust also aims to preserve the existing village character, heritage values, and the natural beauty of the Beecroft and Cheltenham district. You can find out more about our aims and objectives in our constitution.
In the past few months, Trust President Kent Ross, with the help of Philip Ruddock's office and Hornsby Shire Council, has applied to the federal government's Stronger Communities Programme for a grant to install audio visual equipment in the Beecroft Community Centre. We are delighted to announce that our application has been successful and Hornsby Council will be installing a movie screen, projector and speakers in the facility. Our sincere thanks to Robert Browne at Hornsby Council and Jeremy Greenwood from Philip Ruddock's office. We can't wait for our next movie night!
