    • Congratulations to our very own Wollongbar Campus Plumbing staff member Glen Mackay, who was announced the winner of the 2015 Bentley Art Prize on the weekend. The Bentley Art Prize has been held annually at the Bentley Public Hall since 1985. “The Bentley” is a vehicle for emerging artists to showcase their talent to the wider community, with all proceeds raised from the event going toward the upkeep of the Bentley Public Hall, a focal point for the Bentley Community. Well done Glen!
