Inner West Mayor, Darcy Byrne, has announced a precinct in Marrickville will be officially named ‘Little Greece’ on Saturday, July 17.
The official renaming event will be held at Marrickville Town Hall from 5 – 7pm and will feature Greek community groups providing dance and music performances.
The precinct of ‘Little Greece’ will be established on Marrickville Road between Livingstone Road and Victoria Road. Inner West Council has submitted this name to the Geographic Names Board for approval.
“This precinct recognises the long-standing contribution of Greek Australians in the Inner West. Naming a section of Marrickville as ‘Little Greece’ is a gesture of respect to all the Greek migrants who helped establish the Inner West as the birthplace of Australian multiculturalism,” the Council writes about the renaming.
“This precinct will formalise the ongoing special bond that exists between Marrickville and the Greek-Australian diaspora.”
If you’d like to attend the naming ceremony, please RSVP by Monday, June 21, 2021 via EventBrite. For all enquiries, please call 9392 5177 or email at email@example.com.
