Coming Soon - Isla Bank District Display

Our new Display Manager, Peter Campbell, has been diligently putting together the Isla Bank District display these past few weeks. He's relied heavily on photographs, newspapers clippings and handmade items that were loaned by residents of the district.

Isla Bank is following a similar pattern as many other local communities. Sheep farming has given way to dairy, and many longtime residents have slowly left the district. Still, it remains a very beautiful and special place to live, work and raise a family. With new people moving in, bringing new ideas and energy, it can once again be a place to thrive.

In the past, we've created district displays for Bayswater and Gladfield, Aparima, and Fairfax. We hope this will be just as successful. Watch this space for the opening day.

We're open Wednesdays and Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and by request. Your comments are always welcome!
