Tullamore Central School

The boys made the sturdiest tower which could hold all the weights - and won the Earthquake Challenge! Great work Tullamore.

Trundle

On March 24, 2019 it was the 80 year Celebration of the Berry Memorial Uniting Church. Trundle was lucky enough to get two dust storms that day, one from the East, the other from the West.

On that day in 1939 there were no dust storms, thankfully, just a warm sunny afternoon. Geoff Patton was there with his mother and Janette Williams with her mother and baby sister Judy.

Everyone watched as Mrs Berry opened the front door. Janette sat on one of the chairs outside minding the baby in a pusher but heard the lovely music and the choir.

Mrs Harriet Berry played the organ and her daughter Mrs E S Spooner was the soloist.

For 2019 Jane Medcalf was the organist and the congregation sang up well - Old hymn books began "Methodism was born in song".

Rev. T Pardy, now retired, came from Gerringong to conduct the service. His parents were the first couple married in Berry Memorial, Tom the first recorded baptism.

Rev. Maurine Redenbach joined the congregation from Peak Hill. She shared memories from her father's records about the opening.

The evening meal (priced two shillings) was held in the Big Hall - War Memorial perhaps?

Mrs Shirley, secretary of the Macquarie Darling Presbytry brought greetings and enjoyed her first visit to Trundle.

Mr and Mrs Collin Pardy from Nyngan welcomed back to their history place. Much Tottenham news, now 70 years ago when sister Pat, Pardy brothers and their teacher gathered at the CWA Hall.

Heartfelt thanks to the Trundle cooks who never leave home without a plate or three.

Partners Leanne Crofts and Brendan Sheldrick, former chef of Rockpool Bar and Grill in Sydney, breed, hatch and hand raise their birds, which then make it on to the menus of some of the best restaurants in the country.

Brendan will put on the chef's hat once again at Relish Eugowra, demonstrating how to cook quail on open flame.
