Historical society doing a sweet thing
AN Alstonville non-profit organisation is doing a sweet thing to promote the village, post-bypass.
The Alstonville Plateau Historical Society now sells chocolate-coated macadamia nuts, produced in the region by the Byron Bay Chocolate Company, from the Crawford House Museum.
The front of each box has a picture of the 100-year-old Crawford House.
Publicity officer for the society, Cathy Cohen, said all funds raised through the sale of the chocolates would be returned to the museum, which is one of Alstonville’s tourist attractions.
“It’s the perfect Alstonville souvenir,” she said.
She said there weren’t too many souvenirs tourists could buy at the Plateau village.
But the chocolates showed off local produce to tourists, and gave them a memento memento of their visit to the museum.
At this stage, the chocolates will only be available at the museum, located on Wardell Road.
It is open Fridays from 10am to 4pm and Sundays from 1pm to 4pm.
Each pack of macadamias contains nuts coated with milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate.
