2 March 2013
Facebook : No Maccas in the Hills
Saturday, March 2, 2013. 12:00pm - A Community March from Belgrave to Tecoma Primary School - Stand up and be counted as the Hills community came together to show McDonald's that they are NOT welcome in Tecoma! March/Rally started in Belgrave (carpark between Cameo and La Collina Pizzeria) at 12pm, and had moved down Burwood Highway to Tecoma Primary School where there were be Local Musicians, Speakers, Kid's Activities, BBQ and much more. Placards, passion and a fighting spirit were brought to show McDonald's, once and for all, that the community will not be ignored and that they are unanimously unwelcome in these Hills.
