A new era on Pitt Street
Our new look Head Office was officially opened on Thursday night, ringing in a new era for the NSW Nationals. In our office space Members of Parliament, an assortment of Party VIPs and the Head Office team, alongside Chairman Bede Burke and Leader Troy Grant cut the ribbon to inaugurate our new headquarters.
Timed to coincide with the meeting of Central Council, the relaxed drinks function provided the perfect opportunity to introduce the new digs. Party Chairman Bede Burke took the opportunity to reminisce about the various headquarters that have accommodated the NSW Nationals over our history.
From Randle Street in Surry Hills in the 1970s, Young St in the late 1980s and Hunter Street in the 1990s to our first "permanent" home at Carrington Street, the Nats have lived a peripatetic life through the last half century. Our street address has shifted with the fortunes of politics and the ebb and flow of the property market, but as Troy Grant reminded us our heart has always been in the Country.
As has always been the case, our door is open to members visiting from the country. You are all very welcome to drop in and visit your Head Office any time you are in Sydney to check your emails, have a cup of tea and catch up with our staff.
The office opening was a relaxed night with friends and Nats family. All members are welcome to drop in and visit Head Office any time, so when you are next in Sydney, please come and say hello.
