THE VINEYARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 1 August 1902
THE VINEYARDS. Nearly half an inch of rain fell on Saturday. This waa the cause of the Progress Association meeting being so poorly attended - people didn't want to keep the ground from, getting wet. One of oijr stock-owners remarks that if his stock see the winter through it will be a very narrow escape. The Rev. S. G. Fielding preached at the local church on Sunday last Mr. F. Simons is to take charge of the pulpit next Sunday. The dry season is not all loss. Xearly all who are able are sending firewood to the Sydney market. This necessitates cutting., a great deal of superfluous timber, most of which is fallen, and so leaving more room for grass to grow. Others are collecting and buming the remaining rubbish. The amount of work done in dam making about here lately for water storage is almost increditable. It's an ill wind that blows nobody good. The young orchards around here are in fair order, considering» the I severe time we have had.
