Hampton Historical Self-Guided Walk
Rotarian Marie Arendsen was delighted to attend the launch of the Central Hampton Historical Self-Guided Walk on 6th October 2019, representing the Rotary Club of Hampton.
This project was a recipient of one of the Club’s annual community grants which enabled the Society to buy a scanner essential to complete the booklet of the walks.
The occasion was held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Thomas St., Hampton. Felicity Frederico (Former Mayor) launched the event, speaking of the many social and historical changes in Hampton since the suburb started as Gypsy Point. She also pointed out that such occasions would not be possible without the enormous number of volunteer hours provided by our Club to raise money to enable such programs as our Community grants. Indeed, we received many glowing mentions and appreciation from all concerned, and the back page of the booklet describes our involvement.
A delicious afternoon tea and glass of bubbly were served, then interested people set off two of the guided walks, while Graeme Disney gave a talk about the beautiful stained glass windows in the church.
Printed copies of the booklet are for sale on the Society’s website www.sandringhamhistorical.org.au and at their Resource Centre at 62 Bay Rd Sandringham.
An audio version can be purchased from the ROAMNI app on the Apple Store (only for Apple iPads and iPhones at this stage).
