Bottles, Recycling and our Museum
Councillor Ferguson and Secretary Lois Michel

1,000 bottles/cans and a lot of effort by local Councillor, Andrew Ferguson, has given a $100 boost to our funds.    We thank him for his support, in many ways, and look forward to ongoing interaction in the future.

Over a 6 month period Andrew has been collecting this “rubbish” from around his local streets and has now taken it to the Return and Earn Recycling Depot at the Briars Club in Concord.  Not only is he keeping the streets clean and recycling responsibly but is supporting our completely volunteer-run City of Canada Bay Museum in Bent Street.

Our museum has a large collection that has been sourced from all over our LGA and ranges from late 1800’s to late 20th century.  Included in the collection are many items that uniquely represent the history of the City of Canada Bay, such as Arnott’s and Bushells memorabilia.

We have an extensive collection of toys, WWI memorabilia, household and office items, silver and china, sports and local industries, including the iconic Victa mower which was first made here in Concord.

Donations of all kinds, not just money, but objects, archival material, family histories and taped or written memoirs, are always a welcome addition to our collections.

Why not drop in on any Wednesday or Saturday between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm to see what we have and chat to our wonderful volunteers.  Maybe you too could become a volunteer and help us preserve our past.

Once again, thank you Andrew for your continued support.
