What a privilege it was to be at the unveiling ceremony of the bronze statue commemorating nine year old Lennie Gwyther’s ride on his pony Ginger Mick to see the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1932.
Thank you to Bob Newton for initiating this project four years ago and to the Leongatha community for making it happen!
A piece of history I was unaware of and a story that will now be retold often.
Congratulations and thanks to the South Gippsland Brass Band, the wonderful speakers, the primary school children who sang, and the many people involved in organising this inspiring and uplifting day – it was outstanding.
Mrs Laurie Gregg, Poowong.
