REAL ESTATE: 92 Enoggera Tce, Paddington.A well-worn running route led James Freestun to the front door of 92 Enoggera Tce, Paddington.It was 2001 and Aurora was a derelict shell of the glorious award-winning double-storey residence it is today.“I used to jog past the house, have a rest on the corner and look past the building to the view,” Mr Freestun said. 92 Enoggera Tce, Paddington.Mr Freestun’s own yard won the Design and Construct category in the Landscape Queensland Construction Excellence Awards 2016.With a budget of $350,000, A&R Evergreen crafted the prized garden out of a steep slope with the help of a 4m retaining wall.There’s a large self-cleaning heated swimming pool with an infinity glass edge, a vertical garden, a cantilevered pergola with a built-in barbecue, and a bench seat made of travertine with firewood storage underneath.center_img 92 Enoggera Tce, Paddington.One of Mr Freestun’s favourite spots is around the custom-made fire bowl and nearby bar ledge.A wish to downsize is behind his decision to sell this much-loved home.“It’s a very comfortable home to live in and the spaces are large enough to accommodate a big family but not too large that you feel like you have to get your mobile phone out to call people,” he said. 92 Enoggera Tce, Paddington.More from newsNew apartments released at idyllic retirement community Samford Grove Presented by Parks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus20 hours ago“I was determined not to do that.

Ethnic Relations Commission must first work with politicians

first_imgDear Editor,The constitutional Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) should direct its work as a matter of high priority at political leaders, Ministers of Government, members of the National Assembly, public servants, politicians and political groups of the People’s Progressive Party and the People’s National Congress.Working first with these categories can impact positively on race relations and social cohesion. They are the influential ones who – by private and public statements, conduct, and practice in their public duties – set the national tone for the politics of race and lust for power in Guyana. These groups should be the primary targets to promote peace, justice and reconciliation for the national community good.The ERC will be wasting its time and resources and will achieve nothing, unless it engages the political players and public officials identified above in a determined effort to promote reconciliation for improved race relations for the building of national unity. The ERC should simultaneously engage and investigate thoroughly public employment practices to determine fairness, discrimination based on ethnicity, political affiliation, or political opinion with reference to our Constitution and labour laws.There is wide spread observation and concern by the national community about employment practices in the public service and in public agencies. The Ethnic Relations Commission should undertake a comprehensive human resource audit on the ethnic composition of senior persons in the public sector for the challenge to those in public life, Government, the National Assembly, and public officials to take the appropriate corrective actions and measures in the national interest. The ERC can only justify its existence with integrity by pursuing actively the recommended actions above.With thanks,Joshua Singhlast_img read more
