Honouring Yesterday’s Grandmothers” book was put together after holding a High Tea with the same title. There were over sixty guests in attendance and each guest was asked to bring along a story or an item to talk about their memories of their grandmother. The idea came about to compile them into a book after we had ran out of time to read them all. We then asked everyone for a copy of their stories, and thirty seven people handed in 41 stories and photos, and so the book was created. Many old names of the Hawkesbury are included – Horrex, Lenord, Douglass, Turnbull, Greentree, Upton, Dunston, Arndell, Shepherd, Hornery, Davis etc.
