A Current Affair Joins Fight to Save Iconic Church

Despite claims to the contrary the decision by the Anglican Diocese of Bathurst to sell St Pauls at Carcoar isn't just about finding the money to pay restitution to victims of sexual abuse by the church. Let's face it, in 2013 the Anglican Diocese of Bathurst was already in deep financial trouble when it sought a $40m loan from the Commonwealth Bank. The money was spent on two new start-up schools which failed to meet enrolment expectations, a new cathedral bell tower in Bathurst and the Bathurst Goldfields function centre owned by the church. In 2013 the diocese defaulted on the repayments, reportedly still owing more than $36 million. In March 2016 Bishop Ian Palmer of the Bathurst Diocese

Carcoar Crows Fly High!

Eighteen years after they last took to the field the newly reformed Carcoar Crows Rugby League team have played their first round of footy. The Crows were triumphant defeating the Orange Barbarians 8-0 and the CSU Mungoes 22 -12. The games were part of the new Western Rugby League's inaugural Community Cup. The first round was played at Spring Hill in front of an enthusiastic crowd and is played as a short round-robin style footy competition. Next round of the Western Rams Rugby League community cup will be held on August 31 at Burrangong. Carn the Crows!

Carcoarians Keeping the Faith

The “people power” behind the move to save St Pauls continues to gather support from far and wide. Thousands of concerned people have viewed the Facebook posts regarding the proposed sale of the church and expressed their outrage. Grant Molloy wrote: “It really is a case that the community has to say no! It is complete mismanagement of the church finances by the hierarchy, that has now led them to the this irresponsible mess. How can they think that selling the second oldest church over the mountains is going to fix the situation. The funds received from the sale won't even pay the interest on the debt they owe. Let alone pay for the unjust treatment of the members of the community at large.

A Taste of Italy

Antica Australis will be an Italian restaurant, but something completely different than what most Australians are used to. Kelly and Paolo, the duo behind this new venture, will be recreating an Italian 'locanda' (more casual dining than a restaurant, directly translates as an 'inn') - a place to rest and relax and restore your spirits, and bringing authentic regional Italian home-cooking to Carcoar. Paolo Picarazzi is from a 'hidden' food and wine region in Central Italy called Ciociaria [cho-sha-ria] which is one hour south from Rome and in between Rome and Naples. He will be recreating many of his grandmother's recipes as well as traditional recipes from his region which date back to Roma
