Brenda Clouten Memorial Award



Brenda was 60 when she passed away of breast cancer after first being diagnosed in June 1999. After chemo and treatment she had the all clear until June 2001 when we were told it was to be terminal. She soldiered on for another 3 years. Brenda had lived in the Maitland area for more than 25 years and spent the last 16 years at Largs. Brenda was an amazing person always seeing the good in everyone, putting others before herself. Even at her sickest moments she would always be concerned ‘how you were’. She derived a lot of pleasure from the arts. She loved  ballet, musicals, theatre and all things arty. She loved the good things in life and always lived for the moment. The scholarship is our way of creating a lasting memorial that will give benefit to a young, upcoming talent in the hunter area and keep her alive in our hearts. Vicki and Bruce Woods (scholarship founders)
1ST PRIZE: 11 WEEK EXHIBITION AT MRAG FROM 24.8.12 TO 11.11.12.
The winner will be offered up to 15.8 running metres of wall space or up to 46.8 square metres of floor space.

Bushranger Thunderbolt In The News



The last professional bushranger in New South Wales, was Captain Thunderbolt. And now he looks set to join his infamous colleague, Ben Hall, on the State Heritage Register. 

History
Thunderbolt held up mail coaches and inns in the Upper Hunter and New England regions in the 1860s.
The Heritage Council has recommended four sites linked to Thunderbolt, whose real name was Fred Ward, should be given maximum protection.
