‘100 years since the fighting stopped’

About 40 people attended Greenethorpe's  Remembrance Day service on Sunday. The turning of the first sod in preparation for the construction of an outdoor memorial was undertaken by Judy and Kevin Bryant and assisted by Warwick Hodges. 

Thank you to all for attending.

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.
