POSTPONED EVENT

 

LAUNCH OF THE NEW WOODVALE HISTORY BOOK: “WOODVALE A STEP BACK IN TIME “

 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic restrictions, the planned official launch of the book on May 2nd 2020 was cancelled.

Hopefully this launch event can be held sometime towards the end of the first quarter of 2021.

The committee have decided that the event will be probably arranged through, and most likely at, the Bendigo library, although dates and details are not yet finalised, we endeavor to ensure that adequate notice will be provided through this website, social media, and facilities and communication mechanisms available through the Bendigo Library.

 

It has been decided due to the extended delay in launching post pubishing, that the book will be made available for sale immediately through the mechanisms outlined below and via this website. Cost is $25 and postage is free.

 

Woodvale-A Step Back In Time, is a recently published 250 page book, written by Ray Wallace, a local historian. It outlines Woodvale’s history from our beginnings as Nerring, to Sydney Flat to Woodvale, as we are now known. It captures life in many eras, before it is lost forever, and includes the squatters, gold rush period and over 20 settler families. It  paints a picture of how they lived, worked and played and the organisations they supported  to enrich their lives. 144 photos are included The organisations are covered from their beginnings up until the present day. Tales of crime and punishment, natural disasters and personal tragedies add special insights into our story.

 

Ray Wallace, the author, has agreed to the Woodvale Progress Association selling the book now @ $25, rather than waiting until to the official book launch in 2021
