at Benledi, 186 Glebe Point Road

Members are invited to the launch of Celebrating Conservation and Change: 40 years of the Glebe Society on Friday, 17 April. Our publication focuses on the changes that have occurred in Glebe over the past forty years and the involvement of the Glebe Society. It has been produced by  members Jeanette Knox, Ted McKeown and Neil and Jan Macindoe. Our guest to launch the booklet will be Tony Strachan who played a major role in achieving the recognition of Glebe as a conservation area by the National Trust.

To celebrate our 40th anniversary, this booklet will be provided free to all Glebe Society members. Join us for the launch at Benledi on Friday 17 April, from 6 to 7.30pm, and pick up your complimentary copy. Copies will be delivered to members who are unable to attend the launch.

The illustrations include photographs taken by Bernard Smith in 1969, matched to contemporary photographs by Glebe Society member Stephen Christian. The 1969 photographs were sourced from the Bernard Smith Collection at Glebe Library, which includes pictures of many houses in  Glebe. The Collection will be on display at the launch – come along and see if there is a photograph of your house in 1969.

This is a free event and there is no need to book. Nibbles and drinks will be served.
