Angophora Reserve, Palmgrove Road

This photo from 1968 shows members of the newly-formed Avalon Preservation Trust and some locals, putting the finishing touches to the gateway at the Palmgrove Road entrance to Angophora Reserve. Familiar faces (L-R) are Margaret Sanders and standing on the beam are Bert Payne (from Payne’s Timber yard at Newport), local builder Roly Jeffrey, Dr John Sanders (jumper with stripped biceps) and Sid Roberts (builder of the squash courts) with the broom in hand.
