Fairfield matters with Frank Carbone: Another chance to buy a piece of the Showground

Fairfield matters with Frank Carbone: Another chance to buy a piece of the Showground

We are giving residents another opportunity to recognise your family's history and connection with Fairfield by offering another round of engraved pavers for sale. The pavers will be laid in a new walking path at the redeveloped Fairfield Showground.

The pavers can be engraved with your family or business name as recognition of people who have called Fairfield City 'home'.

Ever since John Williams and his wife took up a land grant in 1792 and became the area's first European settlers, people have been coming here from all over the globe. Their names and histories form an important part of our City's story.

So it is only fitting that you get the chance to recognise your family's connection to Fairfield City by purchasing your own piece of the new Showground.

I hope that you will take this opportunity to recognise your families, yourselves or your businesses that have a special connection to Fairfield, because it is the people that are the most important and most special part of our City.

The pavers will cost $80 for a large paver and $50 for a small paver. The price covers the cost of purchasing, engraving and laying the pavers. The pavers will be laid in the path later this year. Numbers are limited on this round of paver sales, so please act quickly to avoid disappointment.

Visit www.fairfieldcity.nsw.gov.au/showground-pavers to purchase a paver online. Follow Fairfield City Council on Facebook for further details on the pavers and the ongoing redevelopment of Fairfield Showground.
