Choir at Jack Madigan Reserve re-opening

Two years ago the choir sang at a community rally to support the remediation of Jack Madigan Reserve, which had been closed for almost a decade due to subsidence and soil contamination. Hobsons Bay Council has since done the remediation and re-landscaped the park, and we were delighted to sing at the official re-opening. The lyrics to this song were written by Mark Fawcett, to the tune of Woody Guthrie's This Land is Your Land.

Some of the NBO are off-camera but you sure can hear them.
