Daceyville centenary - 11 June

The centenary of public housing in New South Wales also means the centenary of Daceyville, our first public housing estate. Work commenced on the estate in June 1912 (just two months after the establishment of the Housing Board - they didn't muck around).

The City of Botany Bay is marking the centenary with a birthday party on the public holiday Monday 11 June, at the estate (corner of Gardeners and Bunnerong Roads, Daceyville).

(Click to view the centenary day program at the City of Botany Bay website.)

There's lots of baking going on. Sounds splendid!
