The October-November 2019 Issue of ‘Recollections’ is Now Available
You can download it from www.bit.ly/Recollections16 - more fabulous stories and information from the NSW South Coast’s colourful past. Please let your friends and neighbours know it’s available.
South Coast History Society President, Peter Lacey, told The Beagle “Over recent months the number of places distributing paper copies of ‘Recollections’ has doubled and we’ve witnessed a significant increase in the number of people asking that we email them copies – so, pleasingly, readership of ‘Recollections’ continues to climb.
“The next issue of ‘Recollections’- the December 2019 – January 2020 issue - will be a little different. For the first time, our primary focus will be on visitors to the area, rather than residents of the area, so it will include brief histories about the 15 major towns on the South Coast…and we’ll be upping our print run by 40% so that a copy can be placed in every hotel room, motel room, holiday apartment and camping ground in the area.
“We simply want to share the fascinating history of our area with as many people as possible – and, in this case, with many who might not normally get to see a copy of the magazine. So we are doing our bit to help make that happen.”
