What this is, is possibly the most powerful video you will watch.
‘It is time to act on our watch’ is confronting, provoking and brave.
Domestic violence in NSW is at a 15 year high according to the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.
You know what’s worse, those people who we share regional NSW with, are more likely to be affected. That means YOUR friend, YOUR sister, YOUR workmate.
It is an epidemic that needs to be addressed, especially by the young future leaders.
Watch this. Pass on the message. Be strong and stand up together.
Fight domestic violence. Protect our daughters. Protect our sons. Make a change.
Please protect each other Nesters, enough really is enough.

Happy Cooking Nesters!
We have stumbled across the finest taste of Italy this side of the mountains. Little Italy in Bathurst was created by Pina Verzino last March for fun. She offers cooking lessons that are given in a very friendly and fun way.
Pina, a wife and mother to two growing boys moved to Australia with her family and saw the opportunity to start her very own business offering her Italian to the people.
What’s not to love about traditional Italian food in little ol’ Bathurst New South Wales?
Little Italy in Bathurst offers cooking lessons of one hour, once a week. Each class includes one recipe, instructions and all the ingredients needed. Plus, at the end you get to taste the finished product!
What an excellent reason to grab a girlfriend, book in to learn some new skills, meet a lovely lady and to fill up your tummy.
For more information you can contact Pina on her facebook page -> Little Italy Bathurst NSW
The Girl Has Sparke is our latest blog crush.
Written superbly from a lovely twenty-something Canberrarian named Megan it is classy and hilarious and simply good reading.
Our favourite article so far is this one -> Foodies Guide to Weekend in Millthorpe. Admittedly, we might be a little bit biased due to her obvious love of Millthorpe which is situated in our own backyard, but she is brilliant in her review of a perfect little weekend location.
Millthorpe through the eyes of The Girl Has Sparke
Grab a cuppa and head over and check her out, because every girl has a little bit of Spark(e).
Talk about one of the most fun ways to raise some much needed moolah.
The I want to wear it again ball is on 24 May 2014 in Bathurst and raises some much needed money for the RSPCA.
What makes this ball so much fun (except you know, a night dressed up away from the kids with your mates) is that you get to wear your wedding dress again! If you haven’t been married you are able to wear whatever dress makes you feel special (or suit if you are a fella!)
You can get tickets for $88.00 and there are discounts for early birds and group tables!
You can find more information here -> http://iwanttowearitagain.com/
Has it been a while since you had a girl’s night out? or maybe the last time you and your hubby-bird were alone was at the accountant’s office going over last year’s tax?
Right now is the time to book your table and have a grown-up night out!
Check it – The Chruch Bar is holding the Tap Takeover.
Pizzas + beers = amazing!

Happy eating and drinking Nesters!
Some people are just ridiculously talented. Like if you are lucky enough to be in their presence when they are creating their ‘art’ you are simply blown away. I feel that way about the wonderfully skillful Jennifer Stocks.Firstly, for the purposes of being upfront I should disclose that she is a part of my family. I have known her my whole life and am proud to call her friend.
Jen is one of Australia’s most sought after and celebrated photographers and is a fully accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). As evidence of her wonderful skills and talent she has won numerous awards for her work both at a state level and nationally.
The best way to describe her photography style is fresh, contemporary, pure and simple. She captures moments in time so you can keep them for always.
She is a professional newborn, baby, child & family photographer servicing the Central West. I can honestly say she regularly amazes me with her sublime work and the sensational care she gives her clients.
Jen is taking some well-deserved time away from her business for 12 months to spend some more quality time with her little birdies (she has four!!) but I assure you will be back, bigger and better then ever in the not too distant future.
To celebrate all that is wonderful about the Christmas season and to thank her wonderful clients for their support, Jen is offering a very special prize to one lucky Nester. If you have had your life captured through Jen’s lens in the last three (3) years she is offering the chance to win one of your images printed onto a 20inch x 30inch canvas. This is huge and would be an amazing way to display your family’s image for a lifetime.
To be in the running all you have to do is be a ‘liker’ of Jennifer Stocks Photography’s Facebook Page as well as The Central Nest’s facebook page and let us know! Winner will be drawn 5pm Monday 30 December 2013.
