INVITATION TO BAGUNG LANE NAMING CEREMONY
at the PRINCES HILL COMMUNITY CENTRE
SUNDAY 22 APRIL 2018, 4:30PM
The PHCC Committee is excited to announce that the lane between Macpherson and Richardson Streets outside our building has received the name ‘Bagung’, honouring the Indigenous traditional owners.
‘Bagung’ is the Wurundjeri word meaning ‘meeting place’.
Trevor Huggard, who is recognised as a ‘Moogji’ (meaning ‘good mate’ or ‘special friend’) by the Koorie Heritage Trust Moogji Club, will be conducting the ceremony. The event will include the displaying of the Aboriginal and Australian flags.
You are invited to our official ceremony to celebrate this event. A light afternoon tea and drinks will be served. We hope to see you there!
The Princes Hill Community Centre, also known as ‘One C One’, will receive the new address of 5 Bagung Lane.
To RSVP: Ph 03 9387 7740 or email email@example.com would be appreciated for catering purposes.
In 2017, a request was submitted to City of Yarra Council to assign a name to the east-side lane running north between Macpherson and Pigdon Streets. This was to ensure the building could be located more easily in street directories and GPS systems and by PHCC attendees.
Following due process and referral to the Wurundjeri Tribal Council, the submission for a preferred Aboriginal name was approved.
Also whilst we are changing our address from Rear 270 Macpherson Street, other property owners on the lane have the choice of retaining their existing address or using ‘Bagung Lane’.
