‘Rock ‘till It Rains!”

Saturday 14th March 2020

Why are we hosting “Rock Till It Rains”?

We are in the midst of one of the worst droughts in history, and farmers and village residents alike are feeling the strain. Combine this with the fact our local pub has been closed for the best part of a year (which changed on Sunday - The Shamrock is open again! Hurrah!) there has been very little opportunity for social interaction in our town.

Rock Till It Rains hopes to bring the community together, reduce isolation, give everyone something to focus on other than the drought, and to showcase the amazing musical talent we have in our district.

Join us on Saturday March 14th at the Greenethorpe Soldiers’ Memorial Hall for this wonderful community event.

Tickets available via www.trybooking.com/BHXGL

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 (closed at present), 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.
