The small precinct around the historic rotunda has been enhanced, thanks to the funding by the Millthorpe Village Committee, utilizing funds from the 2017 Millthorpe Garden Ramble.
The precinct plans were approved by Blayney Council’s heritage advisor.
Brickwork on the rotunda has been restored, a gravelled square in which the rotunda sits has been edged, new lawn laid between the rotunda and the western fence, and new shrubs and small trees have been planted.
The surrounds of the rotunda have recently been planted out by nick with nandinas and magnolias.
This excellent work has been carried out by Tony Wise and Nick Anagnostaras.
Friday Night Live on September 7, led by Genni Kane and Jon Wilby, was a stand-out night.
In a spontaneous gesture of true village spirit, the band decided to busk for our farmers, playing requests and raising money to donate to the ‘buy-a-bale’ fund-raising initiative.
Exceeding all expectations, the night raised $552.55 whilst entertaining locals and visitors immensely.
And in case you missed this item last fortnight: Musical band RAPT will perform for Acoustic Sunday, September 16 from 3pm - 5pm.
A performance rich in folk, Celtic, blues, jazz and classical influences which can be heard in their arrangements and their original material.
Rosie, Ann, Paul and Nigel are an impressive group of musicians.
We are extremely proud and excited to be able to bring you their extraordinary music in September.
