Residents in Kensington and nearby Flemington are voicing their disquiet about the loss of another much loved community gathering place, the Quiet Man Irish pub in Racecourse Road. You don’t have to be Irish or a frequenter at this well known Public House to know how valuable it is as a social hub for our local folk, their families and friends. Currently the plan is to demolish the pub and replace it with … guess? Yes, another apartment tower! Pub: gone. Social amenity: gone. Is there any thing we do as a community to stop this continual erosion of our social heritage and social amenity? Come along to the next Kensington Association meeting and share your experiences of the pub and your ideas of what constructive action can be taken to protect what is vital to our community.
