Australian Light Horse Commemorative Service

On Sunday 1 October 2017 the Friends and the 4th Light Horse Memorial Association held a service to commemorate the founding of the 4th Light Horse by Major General John K Forsyth, a member of the Auburn Church, and the centenary of the famous Charge at Beersheba. See photos in the Gallery.  


AGM Speaker Series

A large audience of Members and friends heard architect Carlo Corallo, a Director of Peddle Thorp Architects, give a fascinating presentation on Adapting and Recycling Heritage Buildings, after the AGM. He showed many examples of historic but redundant buildings being adapted for contemporary use. Members were particularly interested in his firm's work on local landmark, Hawthorn Town Hall/Arts Centre. Carlo joins an illustrious group of prominent speakers, listed here.
