Historical sites sought for plaques program

Local historical sites are being sought for recognition with a blue plaque.

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch is accepting nominations to send to Heritage NSW as part of its Blue Plaques program.

"We have a diverse and rich history dating back many thousands of years from our local indigenous communities and up until present day.

"We really want to hear from people across all of the local community to help this initiative to reflect that."

The eligibility criteria states that the nominated place must have an interesting story to tell about the people or events that are linked to it, and is visible to the public.

The plaques will be linked to a digital interface to allow access to detailed stories, Ms Tesch said.

Ms Tesch said that the more people with diverse stories to share the better.

"Many voices make our shared history, and the Blue Plaques help form a unique, interconnected and interactive way to appreciate and learn about local history, particularly parts of local history that is hidden or not well known.

"who are the people that have shaped our communities?

"What stories are important to be heard?

"What are the important historical events that happened in our local area?"

Nominations may be made to Ms Tesch at her office, via email or by phone (02) 4342 4122.

Anyone interested would receive forms to be filled out and returned by the closing date of October 30.
