Working Bee
The coldest May Day on record for the Cowra/Young area certainly didn't stop a very successful
Working Bee at the Greenethorpe Hall on Thursday. Huge thank you to ALL volunteers who worked 
so hard to make the day very productive. A particular thanks to our big machine operators, Chris Wills, Rod Kershaw and Jim Bryant
who cleared the new site for the Outdoor Memorial. An amazing effort. We had a visit from Des and Tim from Australian Forge
who have done the quote for the outdoor Honour Boards. Very constructive visit. The Community Notice Board was lifted
from its current position. We are awaiting a decision from Weddin Council as to its new site. Four loads of firewood were delivered to
previously "cold" customers.  Once again THANK YOU to everyone involved in the Working Bee.

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.
