The Blayney Public school celebrated 150 years in August 2008 and I compiled a book for the school to commemorate the occasion. The book was a much larger project than I ever imagined but it was immensely satisfying to see the finished product. I decided to write the history of the school in the context of how Blayney and the surrounding area developed through time and the book is full of historical facts and includes some wonderful photos of Blayney from the 1880s onward. If you are interested in the history of the Blayney area, Blayney Public School- a Pictorial History is available through the School or the Blayney Visitors Centre and the ABC shop, Bathurst with all proceeds going to the school.

St David’s Presbyterian Church Moorilda celebrates a milestone in 2011 so I am back to the Moorilda Project for the foreseeable future with a book about the church already underway. I would be delighted to hear from anyone who has an association with St David’s who could contribute stories or photos for the book.
