Southbank Parklands curator to speak at Stafford Garden Club
OUR guest speaker for July is Gary Entwistle, curator for the Southbank Parklands, which comprise 17 hectares of lush gardens and lawns lining the southern bank of the river.
Southbank has had many names and many identities - from a hunting and gathering place for local indigenous people, to industrial prosperity, then industrial wasteland.
In the space of a few short years, the industrial area was transformed into one of the most striking and beautiful settings in Australia.
The club meets on Thursday, July 16 at the OES Hall, cnr Kitchener and Bohland Sts, Kedron.
The ladies will have their usual trade table. Come at 9.30am for a cup of tea and a chat before the meeting. Visitors are always welcome.
The meeting starts at 10am.
For more information phone Gloria on 3355 4703 or Kaye on 3357 7660.
