Chifley Home & Education Centre reopening exhibition

Tea Cosy Opportunity

Chifley Home and Education Centre is inviting local organisations to participate in the “Tea with Lizzie” exhibition. Tea Cosies can be dropped at the Chifley Exhibition Centre until Monday 5 September.

Museums Bathurst is organising an community tea cosy exhibition at Chifley Home & Education Centre to commemorate the Chifley Home and Education Centre reopening and the birthday of Elizabeth Chifley (1 August 1886).

Elizabeth Chifley “Lizzie” married Ben Chifley, later Australia’s 16th Prime Minister, in 1914. They moved into 10 Busby Street where they spent the rest of their lives with Ben passing in 1951 and later Elizabeth in 1962.

Elizabeth supported Ben throughout his political career. She was also very active in the Bathurst community supporting a range of civic organisation and her church throughout her life. To commemorate this work, we are inviting local organisations to participate in the “Tea with Lizzie” exhibition.

The exhibition will run from 10 September to the end of November.
