Golden Memories Museum Promotion

Taking advantage of the lockdown closure of the museum, a small, dedicated team, led by Hayley Lavers and Bruce Chapman, has been renovating the interior of the Good Templars Hall.

A new office and archive research area has been built in the right-hand corner.

This will provide a better organised and more comfortable location for the volunteers who staff the museum, especially in cold weather.

Further reorganising of the displays to maximise use of the space is also being carried out, including the relocation of the ecclesiastical display to the old archives room at the rear of the hall.

With the much-anticipated re-opening of the museum to out-of-region visitors, a promotional advertisement of the museum and its grounds has been filmed for television and online services.

Club Millthorpe

Welcome back to Market Nights at Club Millthorpe. Market Nights are changing to the first Saturday of every month, recommencing on Saturday 6th November at 7pm.

Everyone is welcome and there will be lots of prizes to be won. Prizes include fruit vegie trays, meat trays and more.


A great family night out is guaranteed with the kitchen serving tasty snacks.

The bar will also be open for refreshments. Come along and help support your Club Millthorpe, which, like all local businesses, would welcome a boost as life starts to get back to the 'new normal'.

Unique Pets

Only in Millthorpe! Amongst the patrons at Providore on Saturday morning was an unusual range of pets on leads. Of course, there're always a few dogs, but add to that a happy group of children taking their pet lamb and pet rabbit for a walk. Beautiful!

Blayney Shire Council

In response to further lobbying from village residents, a request has been sent to the relevant Blayney Council staff for an inspection to be carried out of the ongoing drainage problems on the western side of the railway line.

Water still surrounds the property at 105 Forest Reefs Road, and the steady, dual streams of water from 61 Forest Reefs Road are still running into the pipe under the road as they have been doing for the past four months. Council's response will be reported in this column.
