Resident reflections to be captured in Bayswater memory book

The City is seeking stories from older community members to preserve memories of Bayswater's days gone by.

Resident reflections to be captured in Bayswater memory book
Sep 12 2023

Residents and community members with a strong connection to the City are invited to share their memories to form a special publication exploring Bayswater over the years.

Resident reflections: local tales of change will feature stories from older adults aged 50 years or over about the significant events and experiences they’ve lived through and the changes they’ve seen.

The City is undertaking the project in partnership with the McCusker Centre for Citizenship and will produce a printed collection of stories to celebrate Seniors Week from 12 to 19 November 2023.

The memory collection project forms part of the City’s Age Friendly Strategy 2021-2025 and aims to connect older adults with their local community, celebrate their life experiences and ensure their memories inspire and educate future generations.

If you have a story to share, fill in the form on the City’s website or contact the City’s Age Friendly Coordinator on 9270 4107 or

Expressions of interest close Friday 29 September.
