The Leura Village Association is the creator of the village environment we all experience today.
The LVA is a chamber of commerce which was founded in 1981 when a few business owners came together to organise the Leura Fair. The profits from that Fair were used to plant the nineteen Japanese flowering cherry trees along the median strip. The Kanzan cultivars were selected by horticulturist Ib Sorensen, son of Paul, because they blossom in early October during the Leura Garden Festival and Leura Fair which ran as a double-act.
Funds raised by the LVA has, amongst other things, also provided:
One of the objectives of the LVA is to attract residents and visitors to the village by:
The Leura Village Association committee preserves and builds upon the legacy of Mr Alchin and other LVA presidents, committee members and volunteers over the last four decades and continues the tradition of holding the Leura Fair and Harvest Festival.
The LVA cares for the gardens, continually looks at ways to improve the amenity and ambience of the village, and engages with the local Council on issues such as parking, new developments and matters of heritage interest.
There are many benefits to being a member, all of which are included in the low annual fee of $175.
Your Association is supporting you; you can support the Association by being a member and/or volunteering.
The more members we have, the more powerful a voice we have with the Council and the more we can do for Leura.
It's back after 4 years, the famous Scarecrow Competition hosted by the LVA and sponsored by Birches of Leura.
