Riot Day 2016

PFFF mourned the loss of our unique heritage yesterday by holding the "Riot Day" members manned the tables, conducted tours for the hundreds of people who came from the Central Coast, Cowra, Sydney and suburbs. We were fortunate to have Meg and Tom Keneally who had relatives in the "Factory", the pair expressed their dismay at the proposal by Urban Growth to develop the precinct as a residential property with high rise surrounding the sandstone buildings. they said that they would like to see the area preserved as a venue for museums catering for all things precious in our society.
