The 2015 2BS Bathurst Region Citizen of the Year is Abercrombie House owner Christopher Morgan. An historian and anthropologist, Mr Morgan has played a significant role in proclamation day celebrations for over a decade and has won the 2BS Citizen of the Month award on many occasions.  He looks forward to bicentenary celebrations in 2015, saying it’s a valuable time to reflect on the kind of community Bathurst is into the future.

BHS Basketball

How is it that we look more exhausted than they do?

Last week folks from 2BS and B-Rock took on the Bathurst High School girls at a friendly game of basketball where they violently pummeled us 47-26. The only resistance we offered was from BHS alum Rachel Murray who is on break from her college team in California. The school raised around $800 for charity on the day.
