Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

You may remember my blog post of 21 January last when I announced that SAYArts stepped into the breach after the collapse of Urban Myth to give the kids a second chance.


SAYArtsWithout a ready made home St Augustine’s Anglican Church came to their rescue to provide a a venue while they got on their feet. This was a great result as far as I was concerned.

As an elected member of the City of Unley it was great to see them find a home, albeit only temporary as I indicated in that blog post.



As a Warden at the church I felt much pride in being able to assist this group find a way to get on their feet. And get on their feet they have done. All credit to Bec Pannell, Sean Riley and their dedicated team.

St Augustine’s was in a position where they could help because one of their buildings had just become vacant after the completion of a long term lease. After an exhaustive search for suitable replacement tenants they (St Augustine’s) may be on the verge of finding a new tenant. Negotiations are under way as we speak.

There may be a chance that the new tenant may be in a position to sublease the room made available to SAYArts but this is not known at this time and may not be for a few weeks yet. I am not in a position where I can influence this.

It may be therefore that SAYArts will be looking for a new home at the completion of this years second term. That is the end of June.

If you, or someone you know can help them out by providing them with space, I suggest in the order of 80 m2 let me know. I will pass on your offer to Bec.
