Poppy wall for Avalon

A poppy wall is being created

at Avalon RSL in time for

Anzac Day and everyone can

be a part of it. You can join

the friendly group of poppy

makers who meet at the club

or you can donate knitted or

crocheted poppies (there are

lots of patterns online) to the

club anytime. If you are not

creative you can still help out

by donating red wool. Vice

President of the Avalon RSL

Sub Branch Tamara Sloper-

Harding said the project

would continue throughout

the year with the aim of adding

to the growing haul of

handmade poppies to make

a bigger display for Remembrance

Day. Phone the club

on 9918 2201 for more info.

French-inspired hair salon opens

The owner of one of the inner city’s chic boutique hair salons has

opened a second salon in the heart of Avalon. Having garnered a

loyal clientele in her flagship studio Papillon Hair in Paddington,

local Deborah Grevett (pictured) said she had long dreamt of having

another space closer to home. “I love the beachside, small town community,

I love that it has style and groove,” Deborah said. “I will enjoy

doing hair here as it’s a real mix of bright blondes and fabulous

brunettes with the chic French bob. Most of all beach hair is my hair,

like effortless Parisian hair!” Located in Garden Court, Avalon Pde,

where the John Adams salon was prior to his retirement, the space

has undergone a fresh French-inspired refit. To celebrate the opening

clients will receive a 25 per cent discount for the first two appointments,

when the first appointment is made by March 31.
