Line of Bonnets project nominated for Chifley Heritage Award

The group has been nominated for a Chifley Heritage Award for our Line of Bonnets project.

The award, which will be announced on May 6 at the Bathurst Macquarie Heritage Medal and Bathurst Regional Heritage Awards dinner, will go to the project that demonstrates the most outstanding contribution to the built, natural or cultural heritage of the Bathurst region.

The Line of Bonnets project is part of the Roses from the Heart project, honouring the nearly 25,000 convict women who were sent to Australia and stayed.

A bonnet is produced for each woman who came to Bathurst, using the same type of skills that those women brought with them.
