MAY 2010                                                                                                                                        A notice was placed in the ‘CAN YOU HELP?’ section of the West Australian Newspaper on 10 May 2010.  From the tremendous number of responses  received from all over Australia, I could see that there was a big interest in the  china from Subiaco and I was delighted that I was hearing not only from collectors, but from people who had worked at the china factory or families of these workers. So the concept of the Wembley Ware Society was formed.

OCT 2010                                                                                                                                  This month marked the first issue of the Wembley Ware Society Newsletter. Our newsletter continues to be published six times a year and is sent to all members. It includes up-to-date information plus illustrations, on meetings and events. There are  articles on topics related to the china and items of  historical interest in each edition.

DEC 2010                                                                                                                                     An information stall was set up at the SUBI FARMERS MARKET in Perth on December 11, 2010  as a means of  promoting the china, its history and community interest it the heritage of the china factory.  There was much interest in the emergence of the Wembley Ware Society and strong support for the concept of a Wembley Ware Museum/Heritage Centre on the factory site.

MAY 2011                                                                                                                                     An enthusiastic group of  people gathered on 14 May 2011, in a hall in Subiaco to meet othercollectors and watch some archived films about Wembley Ware and the china factory. The meeting decided that the Wembley Ware Society form an interim committee to establish defined objectives as was discussed, and to pursue incorporation.
