Music at the Mill a huge success for Historic Bathurst

SIT BACK BATHURST STYLE: The Music at the Mill event was a successful fundraiser for Historic Bathurst that was well supported by locals who brought a sense of pre-covid times in a relaxed and laid-back environment at Bradshaw’s Mill.

The first real weekend of Spring was the time for Music at the Mill at Bradshaw’s Mill in Bathurst, a fundraiser for Historic Bathurst, a Non-Profit Organisation (NGO), the objective of which is to maintain the history of Bathurst.

This includes the village’s 1820s “feel” as well as maintaining historic monuments. Funded predominantly by its members, this fundraising event was the first in some time due to Covid-19 regulations.

On Sunday the warm weather played a big part in the success of the afternoon as the visitors piled into the mill area. Some even parked as far away as the top of the road leading to the mill, leaving a walk of some distance on a rutted farm road, such was their enthusiasm to join in the fun.
