Tuesday, 27 Nov 2018

* CSU tour and book launch commence 3.20pm Tuesday 27 November

* History of Village Way cottages recognised

Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Wagga Wagga will reflect on the history of 18 accommodation cottages (pictured) for staff and students on Village Way on campus at an event on Tuesday 27 November.

The event includes a self-guided tour and the launch of Clothesline Full of Nappies, a book by Mrs Sherry Morris of photos and stories from past students and staff that reflect on life in the cottages along Village Way.

CSU Division of Facilities Management (DFM) Executive Director Mr Stephen Butt said the event and book acknowledged the significance of the cottages.

“The event and book Clothesline Full of Nappies reflect the history of the cottages and that they hold sensitive and significant memories for many members of the University community,” Mr Butt said.

Mr Butt also said the University recognised the history of the cottages and the preservation of the memories attached to them was important to the future of CSU.

The event will commence from 3.20pm with people invited to walk through the cottages and will be followed by the unveiling of an interactive sign, book launch and speeches.

The Cottages will be opened for 30 minutes, with the formal proceedings to commence at 4pm at building 230 (The Deck Bar). Guests are invited to drive from Village Way and park in car park 75.

Media are welcome to attend the event and interview staff and guests at 4.35pm. The event ends at 5pm.
