With all the changes going on in West End (and I've seen a few in the twenty-three years since I first started publishing the Westender) it's reassuring to see that the suburb still maintains its unique sense of community and identity.
The West End Festival has had its ups and downs over the years, but it keeps coming back bigger and better than ever. Congrats to the West End Community Association for putting in the time, energy, effort and expense to put on the suburb's biggest street party.
It's also good to see Helen Abrahams' Local Legends Awards returning for another year. In my humble opinion, if anyone in West End deserves an award for tireless service to the community, it's Helen herself. Maybe we should nominate her for the Westender award!

Have a good read, hey?
