Friday, May 14th, 2010 - City of Bayswater
THE Maylands Autumn Centre in Western Australia is on the hunt for pantyhose people no longer require.

Whether new, used, laddered or full of holes, the Cancel Council urgently requires pantyhose to make skull caps for wigs.

“All donations are greatly appreciated, whether it’s one pair or a dozen pantyhose,” Maylands Autumn Centre coordinator Dale Shenton said.

“We just ask people don’t cut off the legs because the pantyhose will be cut to suit the design used.”

All donated pantyhose must be clean – but stockings and similar items are not suitable for making skull caps.

Pantyhose can be dropped off from 8am to 2.30pm, Monday to Friday, at the Maylands Autumn Centre, 55 Ninth Avenue, Maylands.

Alternatively, pantyhose can be taken to City of Bayswater Civic Centre at 61 Broun Ave, Morley, from 8.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.

City of Bayswater


The City of Bayswater is a local government area in the inner north-eastern suburbs of the West Australian capital city of Perth, about 9km north-east of Perth's CBD, and includes the suburbs of Bayswater, Beford, Embleton, Maylands, Morley and Noranda and parts of Mount Lawley and Dianella. It covers an area of 32.8 square kilometres and has a population of 55,801.

Originally, the Bayswater Road District was created in 1897 and, in 1961, it became a shire before attaining City status in 1983. The City of Bayswater is divided into four wards and represented by 11 councillors with the Mayor elected from among the councillors.

Recent developments in the City of Bayswater include the opening of the Galleria shopping centre in 1994, on the site of the old Boans building that burnt down in 1986. Morley is now the largest commercial district outside of Perth and Fremantle and further growth is expected.
