Next Meeting - The Knob


Next meeting of the Stratford Historical Society is 7.30pm on Monday 22 February, in the room next to the Stratford Library.

After a short business meeting we will be hearing about the history of The Knob, the reserve above the Avon River on the outskirts of Stratford. Members will then pool their knowledge on the subject, and examine the photographs in the collection. The Knob was an important gathering place for the local Aboriginal people, and then important as a picnic site for Stratford townspeople. The New Year's Day picnic was a major event for many years.

Everyone is most welcome - there will be a cuppa at the end of the evening.
