We are excited to be participating in the “Twenty Years On” commemorative event at the Maitland Gaol on Sunday, 28th Jan (10.00am until 4.00pm). This event celebrates 20 years since Maitland Gaol closed its gates to New South Wales prisoners for the last time.
The gaol will be shaking off its chains, unlocking it’s gates and throwing open its doors to the community and we will be there to help celebrate this momentous occasion.
In keeping with our Menu for Change (eat local and seasonal) initiative, Slow Food Hunter Valley will be hosting a watermelon stand (yes it’s watermelon season). On offer will be thirst-quenching fresh watermelon and fresh watermelon juice. For a gold coin donation, you can enjoy the a pick-me-up sent from heaven – perfect for those January days n Maitland.
