Reprint of the Hackett – 50 years plus: Story of a north Canberra suburb

In October 2018 the HCA released its book “Hackett - 50 years plus: Story of a North Canberra suburb.”  It was sold out by the end of 2018.  The good news is that we are reprinting and will have copies for sale ($20) from mid June.  If you would like to place an order, send an email to mobbs1@grapevine.net.au with your contact details – free delivery to Hackett residents or $11 postage elsewhere.  Or purchase a copy at IGA Hackett.
