  1. Well, where do you start – ‘Hartley Rocks’ alright!!
    Congratulations to all for producing a wonderfully informative, interesting exhibition. I look forward to the book. I went on the day walk yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed my day, to walk on large remnants of Cox’s Road on private properties was an absolute privilege. Thank you to the property owners, Dennis and Connie and to Dick Austen. Thank you to our guides yesterday, Ramsay Moodie, Suzie Moodie and Ian Campbell and thank you to all those back at the Old Hartley School, who handled the registrations, catering and the exhibition, including Barb & Duncan Wass, Trish Ryan, Barb with the teas & coffees and others. It was good to get back to the school house at lunch time to sit and have our lunch before we took off again.
