K eep piles required for the boundary retaining wall have been drilled and poured with work rews continuing to install the final 10 piles over the coming week. Wednesday 7 March, 2018 THE WEEKLY TIMES 3 evelopment starts on new car park nd civic gardens at Lane Cove Plaza he next major step is the installation of elevated site sheds above the shared pedestrian one in Birdwood Lane which will then provide uninterrupted access to the full site for the emainder of the excavation works. Once the project is completed 162,000 tonnes of material ill have been removed – roughly the equivalent of 36 Olympic Swimming Pools. V I C TO R DO MI NELLO eat your heart out! Several years ago when Victor was Minister for Multicultural Affairs he tried to introduce the Festival of Colours for Asians in Australia and we did a photo shoot at Anderson Park at Shepherds Bay. Well I can now assure V ic - tor I have experienced the real thing! Known here in Nepal as Holi or the Festival of Colours it is a public holiday and was celebrated here on Thursday. Revellers roam the streets throwing masses of coloured powder over everybody and squirting water to make it stick. Well not quite over everybody. The locals are very courteous and considerate of obvious foreigners or tourists and people in uniform. * * * H O LI I S a Hindu festival that is shared by Buddhists and marks the arrival of spring. Known widely now as the festival of colours it takes place over one or two days and is a celebration of fertility and love as well as the triumph of good over evil. T-shirt sellers lined the streets with white T shirts with coloured Holi illustrations and sold like hot cakes. We soon realised why. At the end of the day the T shirts were anything but white along with the faces and bodies of the wearers. I’ll show you some examples next week. * * * K ATH MANDU AND surrounds were a seriously affected by an earthquake several years ago and the damage was enormous and horrendous with many houses damaged beyond repair and ancient temples destroyed or seriously affected. Restoration programs are now being undertaken and it is good to see that a number of foreign countries are contributing to the work. We visited a project where the Nepal Scouts and former scouts are building housing for the homeless and I’m pleased to say some of us in Australia contributed including our Sydney St George’s Guild who held their AGM at historic “Addington” at Ryde last night and the first in over forty years JB has missed!
