Wanted Expo 88 Uniforms and/or Memorabilia

April 9, 2018

The Village is looking for uniforms and memorabilia from Expo 88.

The 30th Anniversary is fast approaching and the Village is working towards a special celebration in October and would appreciate help with items that could be displayed on the day, loan or gifted.

Peter Rasey of the World Expo 88 Group has already been a big help, but more is needed. Once the Australia Expo signs are shifted and a full appraisal done, there will be a lot more news.

Please let us know if you are able to assist.

Second and third photos are mine but not first group photo.


Hi Val – Sorry for the late response to your email. Are we still able to use your images and would you like us to insert your name ie. Photo courtesy of Val Bonner-Burrowes or something similar?
Kind regards, Di Spencer

Of course you can use the images. We LOVED Expo.

I do have many other photos but I havenโ€™t had a chance to sort through them. If you would like that job, you are more than welcome!


Thank you for your reponse. I will pass your email on to the relevant person to know if we need more photos.


Hi. I have my canary uniform because it was gifted as a sponsorship gesture for my post Expo work travels. I do
not know where they all went to once handed in, but I would consider lending it out ๐Ÿ™‚


Hi Karen, it would wonderful if we could borrow it, please ring the Village 5495 4581 and ask for Anne. Thanks
