Vale John White

The Battery Point Community Association respectfully acknowledges the passing of former President and prominent community member John White.

John spent his whole life in Battery Point. His father had been an early advocate of maintaining what was then a village and his feelings were imbibed by young John. When John made his own home in the area, he continued to work assiduously to preserve and conserve the historic nature of the suburb.

John took an active role in the Battery Point Progress Association (of which he was President for many years) and the Battery Point Society. He strongly supported planning efforts to maintain Battery Point as a unique and special area.
