A SAD FAREWELL AND THANKYOU

In June 2017 a new newsletter editor produced her first AAG. Linda took over from Lindsay Swadling as Editor, and what a wonderful replacement she turned out to be. Sadly, the December issue of the "Around and About Greenethorpe " will be Linda's last. The AAG continues to be an important "grape vine" for the Greenethorpe Community and spreads its tendrils far and wide. Linda has been involved in many aspects of village life - Hall activities, Greenethorpe PS, especially the P&C, gathering news for the AAG and "keeping an eye on" older village residents. Another hard act to follow. A huge "THANK YOU" from the GSMHall committee and the wider Greenethorpe Community.

Greenethorpe

is a small village in the Central West of NSW, between Cowra, Young and Grenfell. We have a population of about 120 in the village, with another 100 people on nearby farming properties. Within the village are the Circa 1935 Cafe and Post Office, the Shamrock Hotel, Greenethorpe Public School, the Blue Sky art gallery and a Police Station. Art of Espresso Coffee is produced nearby.

 

The village celebrated its centenary in September 2008. It was purpose-built in 1908 to house the share-farmers who worked at Iandra Station, the property of George Henry Greene about 11km away on the road to Young. This property (with its "castle") is open for inspection several times a year, usually on long weekends.
