About the event

THE DARLING POINT SOCIETY INC.

ABN 88 141 102 701

I invite you to join the Darling Point Society for our Annual General Meeting and Social Night

On Wednesday, 15th of November 2023

At RANSA, 1C New Beach Road, Darling Point (opposite 48 New Beach Rd.)

Registration will commence at 6:00pm for a 6:30pm start.

The evening consists of the formal AGM, then a guest speaker and finally a social gathering during which refreshments will be served.

Our Society was established in 1999 to preserve heritage and open green space in our area. To this end we monitor DAs and are pro-active in supporting listings of historic sites and are currently lobbying Council to consider making Eastbourne Ave and surrounding streets a Heritage Conservation Area. We are constantly watchful in curbing over-development such as the Edgecliff Corridor proposal. We also work to preserve open green space and improve facilities for residents in the public domain of our streets and parks. We hold events such as an Annual Dinner, a Lindesay Afternoon Tea, and our AGM/Social Night in order to support this work, to get feedback and to build Community.  The AGM is an opportunity to hear what the Society has been doing over the past year.

Our guest speaker is Milly Caley, a researcher from the Centre of Marine Science & Innovation, School of Biological, Earth & Environmental Sciences, UNSW.

Milly will be speaking on the impact accelerating amounts of artificial lighting at night is having on man, animal, bird & marine life in our local environment and the night sky. On the power anyone in control of a light switch can have on the atmosphere of where we live and the health of the creatures that surround us.

She will outline what residents, and those making decisions on the choice of lighting in our streets & open green spaces, can do to mitigate the invasive, damaging effects strong, white LED lighting is increasingly inflicting upon us. Growing awareness of these impacts in EU and UK are already causing changes on how and where LEDs are installed in the environment.

Finally, we will be serving drinks and light finger food for all to enjoy whilst socialising and to informally chat about any issues of concern amongst neighbours, councillors and politicians.

We are grateful to RANSA for allowing use of their facilities and hope to see you on night.

As this is a catered event, please RSVP by 8th November 2023.
