It was wonderful to be able to donate to Wrapt with Love 10 hand knitted blankets made by the children and knitters of Hillside. Our thanks go to all those wonderful knitters and of course, The Knitting Club.
Middle Dural Public School joined us on Tuesday 3rd September on a fabulous excursion to Australiana Pioneer Village. Both schools dressed in colonial costume and looked right at home in the old slab huts and on the dusty streets of the village. The children learnt about how hard life was for the early European settlers in the Hawkesbury – pumping water, churning butter, washing clothes with a washboard, spinning wool and of course, going on a wagon ride. A fascinating look at life in the colonies.
