Events in May

NEST Cooking Program

We have a fantastic cooking program coming up on Wednesdays in May, June and July. It is being run by Elisha from Oz Harvest and is called the NEST program, which stands for Nice, Easy, Simple Tips and Nutrition Education Sustenance Training. Workshops will be held 1.00pm-3.00pm in the Bayswater Hall and anyone of any age is invited to attend (children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult). There will be six sessions, with an emphasis on a different topic each time. You are invited to participate in the cooking (and eating) process and, best of all, the sessions are FREE (thank you to Knox City Council for the Community Development Fund grant.

75 years of Templers in Australia

When a small group of dedicated volunteers began getting the Archives back into shape nearly a year ago, unseen pieces of Templer history passed through their hands. With the 75th anniversary of Templers in Australia coming up, they decided to dust off these precious memories and commemorate this 75-year-journey. The result is this historic booklet with images and memories from some of the first Templers to arrive in Australia.
