Albany Historical Society’s Spring magazine is brim full of news. Judith Swain surveys the history of the port with its fine harbour and succession of faulty infrastructure; Roger Cunnington examines Matthew Flinders’ survey of King George Sound in 1801; while Loranne Middleton reports on Denmark’s beaches and Wilson Inlet, each with ‘its own character, aspect, rip and weather conditions’. Colour photographs of each beach complement Loranne’s interesting article. Congratulations Albany, on a substantial and attractive newsletter!
The Society encourages the exchange of ideas and news within the State's history and heritage community. The more Affiliated Societies share among themselves their successes and failures in preserving, researching, interpreting and making accessible their local histories to the wider community societies, the greater the opportunities for them to use these experiences to expand and improve the way they promote their programs to their members and the public.
Affiliated Societies are invited to take advantage of this facility that the Society has provided to submit news items by completing and submitting the email Affiliated Societies News Form. Items of news could include
- events you have staged such as tours, talks, workshops, exhibitions;
- history and heritage self-guided walks and tours created;
- participating in major community events
- problems overcome with management of collections such as challenges with regard to collection item recording, storage, conservation and displays;
- partnerships created in the local community;
- fundraising successes and failures
- forthcoming events
- details of recent publications
- successful school programs
- creative uses of digital technology
Not only will other Affiliated Societies be interested in what you are doing but other visitors to our website will be fascinated by your contribution and commitment to understanding and preserving Western Australia's history. All this will help to strengthen our voice for history and heritage.
