Windsor Optometry Marks 100 Years in Century-Old Home

Windsor Optometry recently celebrated a significant milestone – 100 years in its new, century-old location at 283 George Street. The event brought together friends, family, loyal customers, and suppliers to honour the meeting of two remarkable histories.

The practice, now based at 283 George Street, has a long history dating back to around 1920. It all began when a local pharmacist named Alfred Uren decided to set up a place where city-based optometrists could come to conduct eye tests while he dispensed glasses.

Flood Sparks Commuter Chaos

Hawkesbury commuters faced unprecedented gridlock yesterday due to the simultaneous closures of the Richmond and Yarramundi Bridges, peak hour traffic, and the long weekend. Exasperated drivers were stuck in traffic for hours as they tried to get home.

The Yarramundi Bridge closed at about 10:30am, while the Richmond Bridge closed 4pm with little more than a half-hour warning. Traffic controllers were manning traffic on the Richmond Bridge after the guard rails were lowered yesterday afternoon before vehicles were stopped from crossing just before 4pm.  Many commuters, who had already waited for hours to cross the Richmond Bridge, were turned away and redirected to Windsor Bridge, only to face further delays. Transport for NSW and local authorities appeared unprepared for the chaos with no traffic controllers at Windsor to help ease the congestion.

Exploring the Avian Wonders of Hawkesbury: Join Eric the Birdman

In the lead-up to National Bird Week, Hawkesbury City Council is spreading its wings to offer both Bushcare volunteers and other members of the community the opportunity to embark on a guided morning expedition with Eric the Birdman. The walk will take place on Thursday, 28th September, starting at 9 am at McMahon Park in Kurrajong.

Under the guidance of the renowned Eric the Birdman, participants will not only enjoy the great outdoors but also acquire essential skills in bird identification and mobile bird app usage. The best part? No prior experience in bushcare or bird watching is required, making this event accessible to bird enthusiasts of all levels.
