Mr HIBBINS: I recently attended the release of Dr Judith Buckrich’s new book, The World Is One Kilometre: Greville Street, Prahran. This was held at the new Prahran High School and was very well attended. Greville Street has a fantastic history—Indigenous, civic, political, artistic—and counterculture for music, clothes, food and lifestyle. It has got an incredibly rich history. I hear a lot about what a fantastic place Greville Street used to be. It is still a fantastic place, and I support all efforts by the council, the community and retailers to make Greville Street such a great place.
