Deniliquin Historical Society has received a $1000 grant to go towards publishing a book.
The book is titled Settling the Edward and was written by Mavis Kilpatrick and Ruth Sinclair.
It follows on from an exhibition of the same name recently held by the Historical Society at the Peppin Heritage Centre.
Society member Shirley Powell said this was one of the largest grants the group had ever received.
Member for Murray-Darling John Williams presented the cheque to members on November 8.
‘‘I think it’s pretty important to record your history and find out where we’ve been. There’s some pretty rich history here in Deniliquin,’’ he said.
