Heritage Week: Heritage week traditionally runs from 3rd April but here in Canowindra we’re kicking off early! On Saturday 2nd April two free events will focus on the Historical Museum as part of the 2016 open weekend for museums in Blayney, Cabonne and Orange. Noted local bush ranging authority, Craig Lawler, will conduct a walking tour of bushranger sites which will begin at 10am outside Finns Store and end at the Historical Museum, which will be open from 10am to 3pm with ‘curator led tours’ every hour, on the hour. This is a great opportunity to re-discover your local Museum and explore new aspects of our collected and preserved heritage.
Ultrasound Success: The Canowindra Hospital Auxiliary would sincerely like to thank everyone that has donated to the ultra sound machine for the Canowindra Hospital. Within three weeks and with the generosity of the community we have reached our goal! Over the next few months negotiations will take place with Dr O’Ryan, Dr Padma and NSW Health and they will determine the right machine to purchase. Well done to all who were involved.- Peggy Beath, President of Canowindra Hospital Auxiliary.
