Rowany will be creating the Lochac Hero Cloak to be presented at Rowany Festival 2018. We are in the planning stages. We will be seeking help to create the cloak soon, so keep an eye out if you’re interested.
The design is based on an extant half circle cloak. It will be red ground with a Rowan tree flanked by two white/silver pegasi and words around the semi-circular hem.
For now, these are some quick sketches of possible positions of the pegasus just on a quarter circle that would probably be mirrored on the other side.
We hold Arts and Sciences every second Sunday at Dence Park Creative Centre in Epping. There is plenty of space and light, and people to chat with about all different kinds of pre-C17th craft.

Notice by Eloise D’Arnell
Unto the populace,
With pleasure I present the latest venue information for Tuesday Night activities:
Arts and Sciences, including singers, dancers and bring-a-project remain at Herb Greedy Hall, 76 Petersham Rd, Marrickville, NSW, 220.
Fighter Practice, both Heavy and Fencing, new venue location is: Addison Rd Community Centre 142 Addison Road, Marrickville NSW 2204. This is to be the new permanent venue. The time for Petersham Town Hall renovations was extended so we needed to search for a new venue and this is the one, enjoy!
P.S. As usual, venue info, links and maps are also available on the Addresses and Maps page
Unto the Populace of Rowany does the Reeve send Greetings,
It has been brought to my attention that there is some confusion over how to calculate the GST component for event reporting.
The good news is there’s not much calculation required by you. The total amount collected from the event fee (Cell E27) is divided by 11 to create a value in cell J28 (GST collected).
To fill out “GST paid”, add up the amount of GST you paid from receipts or invoices (hall hire, food, miscellaneous) and enter it there. Remember that the original receipts or invoices must still go to the Reeve for filing and double checking purposes.
“GST Liability” should automatically be calculated by the spreadsheet. If not, the liability is the difference between the amount of GST collected and the amount of GST paid (or, in spreadsheet cell terms “=J28-J29”).
I hope this clarifies the matter satisfactorily.
Yours in Service
Jean-Christophe le Saussier
