Berowra Woodchop 2017

Mark your diary – the annual Apex Berowra Woodchop Festival will be held this year on August 13th 2017 at the Berowra Village Tavern.  Stallholder application forms are now available.

Now in its 23rd year, Woodchop is an old style “fair” where the community joins together to enjoy the festival atmosphere, market stalls, amusement rides, food and wine tasting, live music and a world class round of the NSW Axemen’s competition.

Woodchop attracts thousands people, with many local schools, community groups and Hornsby Council being represented. All proceeds raised from Woodchop are returned to the community via Apex service programs and donations.

If you are interested in holding a stall, please submit an application form. The closing date for applications is Sunday 9th July 2017 – get in quick, as we had to turn stall holders away last year!

 

Movie Under the Stars 2017 Wrap-Up

A big thank-you to all the families who joined us at Warrina oval for the annual Movie Under the Stars. Berowra residents came out in force to celebrate the end of school term and to make the evening a great success.

Movie Under the Stars is sponsored by Hornsby Council and organised by Berowra Apex who also provide the sausage sizzle and jumping castle. Berowra Guides supplied popcorn and copious cups of hot chocolate as families settled down to enjoy the Oscar winning film “Zootopia”. The rain stayed away and the stars did indeed come out!

You may have seen the “Blues Brothers” around on the night with their custom converted “Bluesmobile”. These are four Apex members who will be participating in this year’s Trek4Kidz, a cross-country charity rally in support of the Starlight Children’s Foundation. The money raised from Movie Under the Stars will be donated to this worthy cause. You can also show your support by making a donation to the team.

Apex are always looking for new members to help run events like Movie Under the Stars. We are a group of guys from around Berowra who want to help build a better, local community – if that sounds like something that interests you, get in touch with us.

Movie Under the Stars 2017 – Zootopia

Celebrate the end of school term on Friday 7th April at a free community event – Movie under the Stars – hosted by Berowra Apex at Warrina Street Oval, Berowra with the support of Hornsby Council. On show will be the family fun movie “Zootopia” which recently won an Oscar for best animated feature film – In a city of anthropomorphic animals, a rookie bunny cop and a cynical con artist fox must work together to uncover a conspiracy.

Berowra Apex will be raising funds for the Starlight Children’s Foundation as part of a charity car rally across Australia that a team of four spirited Apexians will be entering dressed as Blues Brothers. Come and check out the “Bluesmobile” on the night.

Christmas Wrap-up 2016

The 2016 Apex Santa runs and Christmas tree sales were a great success. This year Santa entered the internet age and broadcast his location live on the Apex Santa Tracker. Was great to see a huge turnout at Berowra Oval to see Santa.

Thanks to the Berowra community for all the support in 2016 – we live in a truly great community. Have a healthy, happy and prosperous 2017 from all of us here at Apex!
