Newstead & District Historical Society

Newstead "REMEMBERS" Exhibition.
The Newstead and District "REMEMBERS" book will be launched at the Newstead & District "Remembers" exhibition at 5.00pm on Saturday 11 November.

The idea of the book and the exhibition is to bring together two themes - the schools of the old Newstead Shire and the 100 year centenary of World War 1.

Our society members have done an incredible job in researching some of the lives of the over 300 men and women from the district, who volunteered for service in The Great War. As children, many of them attended the local schools.

The book contains photos, poems from the War, the names of some of the men and women volunteers, as well as information about the schools the volunteers attended and newspaper articles of the time.

The book and exhibition are a wonderful tribute to the district's contribution to The Great War.

Exhibition opening hours are 10.00am to 4.00pm
