Be a part of history and leave your legacy

Join us to celebrate Colonel Light Gardens’ Centenary with a special CLG time-capsule: Be a part of history and leave your legacy  


We are celebrating Colonel Light Gardens’ Centenary as a model garden suburb and as part of the celebrations you are invited to a special event at the new heritage archway at Oxford Circus, and to contribute to a time capsule. 

The archway will be a significant new feature in our local area, marking the entrance to this State Heritage Area listed suburb.  

I invite you, along with special guests including Keith Conlon, SA Heritage Council Chairperson, to celebrate ‘Colonel Light Gardens 100th birthday’: 

2pm – 3pm  
Sunday 22 August 2021 
at Oxford Circus (corner of Goodwood and Springbank roads), CLG 

As part of the centenary celebrations, I will also be putting together a special Colonel Light Gardens’ centenary time capsule, with the intention that it will be opened in 50 years time. 

If you would like to contribute an item for the time capsule, register your interest on Sunday 22 August 2021.  The item does not need to be ready to be placed in the time capsule at this event. Further information and instructions will be provided to those who have registered their interest. 

Suggested items for the time capsule include photos, letters to a future resident of your home, newspaper articles, artwork, magazine clippings or newsletters from key local groups.  

I look forward to seeing you on the weekend.
