Vale! Peter Barrack OAM
Peter is respectfully remembered by the Parks and Playgrounds Movement for his outstanding contribution to the Newcastle and Hunter Community.
As Secretary of the Newcastle Trades Hall Council he was a true friend of the Newcastle Community and Resident Groups. His intelligent leadership of the Trades Hall Council provided a powerful Green Ban Umbrella to make sure important Community Issues such as protection of Newcastle East and the Newcastle Foreshore and Lake Macquarie Green Point were fairly heard by Local Government.
The parks Movement appreciated the advice of the Trades Hall Council in many Park issues and always valued Peter’s support.
We were sad to hear of Peter’s death and we extend our heartfelt condolences to his wife Di and family and grandchildren.
