The Poulters: a Family Farm

THE Poulter family were prominent farmers in Burwood and Ashburton for many years. Can you imagine owning nine acres of land on Boundary Road Burwood, now the corner of Warrigal Road and Ventura Street Ashwood? Purchased in 1922 for just £1550! This soon became the location of R. Poulter and Sons, Frimley Carnation Nurseries.

What our readers are saying:

Countless people at Golden Days Radio FM 95.7 have mentioned they enjoy the Burwood Bulletin articles. From what I’ve gleaned from being on reception and people phoning in to my program around half the listening audience must be in the area covered by BB.

Just wanted to say what a superb job you all do at Burwood Bulletin. I enjoy it very much.
Thank you to everyone.
