National Trust Community Heritage Competition Winner.
My story about remembering the old ‘Coles Caf’ in Bendigo and what it meant to a young mum new to town has won the National Trust project called Australia’s Community Heritage.
As part of the launch the Trust ran a competition whereby all contributions to the site before September 6 would go in the running to win a year’s free entry to all National Trust sites in their state.
A panel of judges decided after much deliberation that my story entitled ‘Much needed refuge for new mum’ was “the very best contribution to the new site.”
I received my prize this week and am looking forward to visiting lots of sites over the next year.
