Neighbours say patients at a Wembley drug rehabilitation clinic frequently fight in their street and jump fences into their backyards. The clinic in Harborne Street is likely to be given its marching orders by Cambridge council next week. The Fresh Start clinic at 17 Harborne Street, known as Harborne House, has been operating under a residential zoning since 2009, but the Subiacobased non-profi t organisation recently applied for a rezoning after complaints from neighbours prompted a council probe.
The old moreton bay fig at West Leederville Primary School dropped a branch as big as a tree last Sunday. Principal Fiona Kelly said neighbours had heard an almighty crash at about 5.20am as the branch fell on a playground. “It’s an area that’s got stepping stones and things that kids play on,” she said. “It would have been a tragedy if somebody had been injured.”
