Winter in the Hills & Hawkesbury brings together several facets for which the region is famous – enormous reserves of energy for getting things done, community efforts to help those who aren’t able to help themselves, and enjoying the best in food and entertainment.
And we have all that and more covered in the Winter edition of Sydney Hills & Hawkesbury Living.
Hills residents are known for their willingness to help those under stress, and in this issue we look at several charities who make a real difference in the lives of people who need help. And the Hills chapter of the SES is celebrating 50 years of active service to the community, for which we are all grateful.
Well known actress Zoe Naylor tells us why she loves living in the Hawkesbury area, and the positive impact it has had on her life and family.
In this edition we begin a four part feature series on outdoor design with award winning landscape designer Luke Roodenburg. He shows how readers can establish an outdoor area that not only provides endless entertaining opportunities for family and friends, but can add real value to their home as well. In this issue we take a look at planning for a complete back yard makeover.
Our interior designer Robyn Hawke explains industrial chic design ideas to utilise the raw elements of a space to brilliant effect, providing a style that is both functional and innovative.
Our Behind the Gates feature takes a look at a dazzling property in Agnes Banks that has been home to the same family for over three decades, and is now being enjoyed and loved by the next generation of the family.
And special guest chef Eunjae Lim shows how to turn on a Christmas in July party with a spectacular dinner menu of comfort food served with aplomb. It’s the perfect way to celebrate, well, anything you like!
This is just a taste of what we have in our Winter 18 edition. It’s an issue not to be missed. Happy reading!
