1. Newtown Hall has a fresh new look
Local artists Kerb and Spex have created a beautiful new Newtown-centric mural (above) on the side of Newtown Hall. The mural was inspired by Kerb’s memories of growing up in the neighborhood and iconic spots like the playground, PIC Church and Te Ara Hou flats.
Filmmaker Mire Moschella was comissioned to document the development of the mural which will be screened at the official mural opening on 30 April. There will be snacks and drinks and all are welcome. Check out the Facebook event for more information.
2. Newtown Tool Library has a new home
The Newtown Tool Library has moved into its new location beside the Newtown Library. The purpose-built space is lighter, brighter and bigger with an awesome collection of tools for the community to borrow. Donations of new or second hand tools are always welcome!
