PATHWAYS to Harrow has missed out on a Victorian Community History Award.
Harrow Bush Nursing Centre president Jennifer Ellis attended the awards ceremony in Melbourne on Monday night.
The project was nominated in the Historical Interpretation Award category, which the Chewton Domain Society won for its entry, entitled The Monster Meeting.
It was about a great meeting of diggers on December 15, 1851.
Harrow Bush Nursing Centre manager Bernadette Close said the team behind Pathways to Harrow was excited and thrilled to have been nominated.
“We feel very proud of ourselves,” she said.
She congratulated the Chewton Domain Society on its win, and was optimistic for the potential for further recognition in the future.
Pathways to Harrow started last year.
Each year until 2017, five women will share their stories about how and why they decided to move to Harrow, and what inspired them to stay.
At the end of the five years, a hard-cover book containing all 25 women’s stories will be compiled.
