Ahimsa and Marie Byles - Saturday 15^th September and Sunday 16^th September 2018
Please note this weekend in your diaries. The Friends of Ahimsa, with the support of the National Trust, is managing this special weekend. The Friends is being established to assist in promoting and conducting activities at the former home of Marie Byles.  Marie bequeathed Ahimsa to the National Trust when she died. The Friends of Ahimsa consists of a small number of likeminded people interested in protecting Ahimsa. Marie Byles was a well- known local identity. She purchased over a hectare of bushland at the end of Day and Cobram Roads in Cheltenham and built her modest home within the surrounding bushland. Besides being a keen conservationist, Marie was the first female solicitor in NSW, working from her office in Eastwood.  September 2018 will be the 100 year anniversary of her registration as a solicitor.

The Trust, in conjunction with other community groups, is supporting this weekend activity. On Saturday 15^th September the Trust will lead a historical walk through Beecroft and Cheltenham starting at 1pm at Marie’s childhood home in Welham St Beecroft and finishing at Ahimsa in time for the official opening by the Mayor of Hornsby at 3.30pm.

On Sunday 16^th September the Trust will conduct our regular Spring Walk departing Ahimsa at 2pm and returning for afternoon tea at 4pm.
