Donation: 50c
In response to the town crier in yellow
tartan and red hat, and to the sound of
bagpipes, a happy crowd of residents,
family, staff and volunteers and wellwishers assembled on the front lawn of
the Maryborough Nursing Home for the
celebratory photo shoot.
Then it was back to the lounge where we
packed in to hear the speeches in a
programme emceed by Bob Osborne, a
Board member with a history of
volunteer activities with MDHS and a
fund of stories spanning some fifty years.

drum. Two residents wrote poems especially for the day, one of them being our own well-known contributor to
The Welcome Record’s poetry page, Elizabeth Rickards. (For all those who love her work, she told me she had
‘another batch’ to send us.) All this was followed by a sumptuous afternoon tea and a wonderful display of photos.
The Nursing Home we have today replaced Clarendon House in 2004 and is one of three MDHS residences, the
others being located in Dunolly and Avoca.

photographic competition. Judy and Wayne McKail impressed
Queen Victoria with the sewing machines from the Victorian
era. Her Majesty is trying to work out how to use one. Wrong end

Decorate Dunolly!
It's that time of year again.....and it's been suggested
that it might be a good idea to get together and do
something to brighten up Broadway for the festive
season. There is a stash of whirligigs kept from last year
as a starting point, so get your thinking caps on and
come to the Dunolly Neighbourhood Centre next
Monday, 3 November at 1.30pm to see what ideas we
can come up with. If you can't make it but would like to
be involved, ring Anna, 0490 077 902and leave a

each community group was thrilled with their

I enjoyed Coral Christensen's article about Betley last
week. It was interesting to hear that the transported
room at Dunolly Primary School called Betley was in
fact the school my grandmother attended. Her great
grandchildren used that room about one hundred
years after she did.

A great day was had by volunteers, participants and
visitors alike last Sunday here in Bealiba.
The Historical Society hosted their third annual
photographic competition and open day, with over 60
entries across the age groups with the majority in the
open section. We need, of course, to thank all of the
generous sponsors. Without their support we would
not have had a competition. Donations of cash
totalled over $200 and this was distributed across the
categories for prizes. Plus we had donations of goods
which we raffled off. (A prize was a hand knitted jacket
that many had their eyes on). All of this helps to cover
our costs on the day. We could not hold this
community event without the generosity of everyone
who donated their time and money. A big thank you
to you all!
On the day we had an amazing display of antique
sewing machines from ‘Sew What Maryborough’.
Wayne and Judi McKail are treasures themselves,
donating their time and effort. They then surprised
everybody with a donation of an oven door from
Pennington’s store in Bealiba that had been part of
their personal collection in their museum in
Maryborough. I am quite sure that Maryborough has
no idea what they have lost in the closing of the Flour
Mill Gallery; let’s just hope they can find a home for
their amazing collection before it is lost from this
Ann Jeffree, from ‘Sketched Spun & Warped ‘in
Clunes, donated her time and expertise to run a photo
workshop. All the participants came away with
knowledge about their cameras, plus tricks and tips of
how to take a great photo of their pet. I heard that
some were still up in the wee hours reading their
camera manuals, discovering more about the
technology and honing their skills. Next year we hope
to expand on the workshop idea; not only camera
skills but presentation skills, encouraging participation
from all sections of the local community.
We also need to thank Georgia McGuire from Dunolly,
who stepped in at the last minute to judge our photo
competition, and all for a plate of sandwiches!!!
Georgia brought her artistic skill and eye to this task.
What an interesting time it was to work alongside her
as she viewed and selected the winners. While
Judging is a subjective process, there is a range of
criteria that would be of interest to our budding
photographers, there is potential there for a workshop
We had visitors to the gardens that were open in
town. While it has been such a difficult season with
29 October 2014
the roses only just coming out now and many of the
seasonal flowers just not lasting more than a day or
two, there was still much to admire. Nola McClelland
put a great deal of effort in compiling the garden list
including historical facts about the properties that
added great interest; we look forward to a better year
in our gardens...maybe some rain???
Our Historical displays were also very popular. A table
of just a few of the boxes of photos we had donated
was laid out and so many people pored over them,
identified the pictures, and added names to the many
faces. It was quite a talking point.
The CWA kept us all fed and watered through the day;
as always this was a good spot to sit and catch up.
Again we thank everyone who donated goods and
prize money, plus all the volunteers, visitors and
supporters who came and helped, making this a really
great community effort. We are all looking forward to
staging this event again next year. We learn a little
more each year, and know we can build on this
success. We are constantly reminded of the spirit of
Adrian Cook and his passion for photography,
community and our local history. We hope to see you
all next year.

After being called out to attend several ‘burn
offs’ that developed a mind of their own at the weekend,
the CFA would like to remind local residents of the
necessary precautions and regulations around burning off
at home.
Paul Tangey, Community Education Co-ordinator for the
CFA North West region, has urged residents to consult
weather forecasts before lighting fires. A cool, calm
morning can quickly deteriorate into a windy afternoon
or evening and fires travel very quickly when fanned by
Residents must always check with their local shire
regarding regulations around lighting fires and a call to
the Victorian Burn-Off Notification Line is always
advisable. It may save an unnecessary call out by the local
CFA when a neighbour reports smoke or flame.
Fire Restrictions for Summer come into force in the
Loddon Shire at 1.00am on Monday 3 November.
The Goldfields Shire will introduce restrictions in a few
weeks time. Mr Tingey emphasised that the time to
clean up around houses for the Summer season is well
and truly upon us.
Simple precautions homeowners should take now
 Mowing and slashing any long grass, especially around
the house.
 Making sure gutters are free of leaves and debris.
 Cutting back overhanging tree branches close to the
house or sheds.
 Raking leaf litter or bark away from the house.
 Removing any piles of firewood that pose a threat to
the house.
 Making sure any flammable liquids, including petrol
and old paint tins, are stored safely away from houses.
For any further details or information go to:
The CFA website, cfa.vic.gov.au, Victorian Bushfire
Information Line, 1800 240 667 or install the FireReady
app on your phone or ipad. This app enables you to
create a ‘watch zone’ around your area and sends you
notifications of any fire within that watch zone as soon as
they are reported to the CFA. There will be a CFA display
and an opportunity to ask any questions you may have at
the next Dunolly market on 9 November.

After visiting the photo display, buying a ticket in the
raffle for the gorgeous hand knitted jacket which I can
see myself wearing, and enjoying a lunch made by the
hardworking Bealiba CWA ladies, it was time to visit
the Bealiba reservoir.
There is something very satisfying about coming onto
a body of water in our dry landscape, and Bealiba
Reservoir did not disappoint us. It is a small body of
water as reservoirs go, but is set in natural bushland
filled with birdsong. Edged with green algae and
rushes, and with a high water mark from wetter years
clearly visible, it is a lovely spot. No wonder there are
a number of sticks in place to hold fishing rods.
Campfire remnants indicate it is popular camping spot
as well.
Plenty of birds including honeyeaters, swallows, and
some type of stilts were calling to each other in the
still air. Little bushflies greeted me with well-placed
stings and hurried me back to the car in search of nonexistent insect repellent.
A gravel road goes all the way around the reservoir,
crossing the dam wall at one point. Access to the
water is very easy as there are no steep banks. Bealiba
people are lucky to have this great recreation area at
the foot of Mount Bealiba for their use.

Despite a stormy night and a blustery wind, Joan
Cook's roses made a beautiful welcome for the
depleted Dunolly Garden Club last Monday. The red
roses were in full bloom, but the white ones were only
starting so Joan will be able to enjoy her roses for a
while yet. The irises were in full bloom and seemed to
be unaffected by the dry spring we're having. Joan's
son Chris was on hand to discuss his role in the
garden's maintenance. The pair has made extensive
use of a variety of succulents which work well with the
bigger shrubs. Chris has also put down a thick layer of
mulch in all the garden beds and has used soaker hoses
to allow for quicker watering time and less water
waste. Gardening practices have had to evolve for
gardens to remain viable in our changing climate, and
Joan and Chris have done that successfully. Helped by
their lovable and attention seeking dog, the work they
have done has created a very pleasant place for
everyone to enjoy. Thank you Joan and Chris for a very
enjoyable afternoon, and for the banana cake

Beyond the Garden Path
with Maz…………..
The last Sunday of October turned out to be ideal for a
drive to Bealiba to see the Photographic Competition in
the Community Hall.
First sight though, as we walked through the door was
the amazing display of antique sewing machines.
Wayne McKail, the owner of this collection, or should I
say part collection, was there in person to show people
around and impart to us his impressive knowledge
about them.
I personally found them quite fascinating. From the
more simple designs, to what could be termed ‘Over
the Top’ inventions. Not to forget the artistry and
creativity of these beautiful pieces.
It was just a mere 60 years ago that I was taught to
sew, by my mother, on one of these similar machines.
But of course by then we’d moved on from hand
turning to treadle power.
Photography of course is a similar time frame, minus
five minutes or so in the scheme of things. From
viewing crystal clear copies of black and white photos,
from WWI (found in a French attic) to our modern day
coloured pieces of art, such as those displayed at
Bealiba on Sunday.
What a long way we’ve come in a relatively short time.
Animals were a favourite subject through the lens,
especially family pets.
First prize in the kids’ section of the old dog in the
trough could have been titled ‘The things we do for
love’. It’s a positive sign to see the work of young
people interested in the arts. Keep up the good work.
And who says the camera doesn’t lie. Some of the
fabulous scenery and garden shots, could not possibly
have that dreamy romantic perspective in real life
could they?
And I’m almost sure I put on half a kilo, just staring at
that colourful display of cakes pictured. Every picture
tells a story, albeit a different one to each set of eyes.
My personal favourites were the Proud Rooster and the
tasty Pomegranates.
Casual lunch served with a cuppa and lots of smiles,
after the viewings were over, was as always, excellent.

St John’s Anglican Church
Celebrating 145 Years in Dunolly
Leading up to the service to be held on Sunday
30 November 2014, I would like to write about the
buildings and their history, also about the organ,
which is really very special.
The Common School
During the 1850s Dunolly was a bustling gold mining
town. Its population consisted mainly of ‘Diggers’. On
23 March 1857 the foundation stone was laid by the
Bishop of Melbourne, for the Church of England
School, Dunolly.
By January 1858 the building was almost completed,
except for the roof. In typical church style a ‘Bazaar’
was held, and helped raise 70 pounds towards the
building fund. By April, the stonework was completed
and a government grant of 100 pounds almost paid for
the completion of the building.
The ‘Common School’ which had been functioning
since March 1857 in premises in Broadway,
transferred to the new building in May 1858. Known
as the Church of England School, it became ‘Common
School’ No. 189, after the passing of the Common
School Act in May 1862.
Mr and Mrs Joshua Thomas were in charge of the
school. By 1872, nearly 200 pupils were attending the
school. The two school rooms were so overcrowded
that the infant classes were taught in the Dunolly
Town Hall (now the Courthouse). Mr Thomas was in
charge of the school for 18 years and retired when the
school closed on 31 May 1875. At this time there were
390 pupils on the roll. On completion of Dunolly State
School on 1 June 1875, the pupils all transferred to
the new school building.
The ‘school’ or as it is now known as ‘St John’s Hall’
has been used by the Church and the community ever

This rather splendid cup was brought to the Dunolly
Field and Game Gun Club shoot on the weekend. It had
been rescued from a Ballarat opportunity shop where
it had come to rest, unloved and tarnished - without a
name or any history!
The inscription on the cup reads –
WON BY ___________________________
The Dunolly Field and Game Club would love to hear
from anyone who might know who won the cup in
1938. They are also interested in collecting any history,
records and memories of the Gun Club from the time
before it amalgamated with the Field and Game Club
in the early 1980s.
If anyone has any information they could contact the
Welcome Record and we will put you in touch with a
member of the current club.

Bits and Pieces ---When we were watching the street scenes in the film
about Gough Whitlam the other night I couldn’t help
but notice how slim the majority of people in the
street seemed to be. There was something else too –
no-one was stuffing their face with some sort of fast
food – could there be a connection? No one ate in the
streets so much in 1972. When did the Golden Arches
etc. arrive in Australia?
Heard on the ABC, a description of the Crystal Cup
horserace on Saturday – Donkey Drop is heading to
the rear of the field. Was this horse running the wrong
On the subject of the races – why fascinators and how
the heck are they attached to the head of the wearers
– Super Glue?
What is the idea of that little man following people in
the APIA ad? It is really ridiculous and irritating!
Are court artists only allowed to draw two or three
facial types? The similarity of the faces of criminals in
their sketches is puzzling. No wonder they are hard to
identify – they all look the same.
After the invasion of ‘flying ants’ the other night there
were heaps of their wings left outside the windows.
They are nearly impossible to sweep up – being so
light they just keep wafting about.
Have you seen the toasters that were for sale in
Maryborough a while back? Not only do they cook
toast, but there was a section attached where you can
poach or boil eggs. When I mentioned them to the lad
in the shop, he said he wanted to know where he
could cook his bacon!

The Victorian Coalition Government is investing
$865,000 to fund programs in the Ripon electorate
that help young people develop skills, build confidence
and make new connections for life after school.
Minister for Youth Affairs Ryan Smith today joined
Liberal candidate for Ripon Louise Staley and Nationals
Candidate for Ripon Scott Turner to announce that
seven groups in Ripon will receive funding to support a
range of local initiatives for young people.
Ms Staley welcomed the funding from the Napthine
Government's Engage program that will help more
young people in the Ripon area connect with their
local community and live active, healthy and fulfilling
‘These programs build on the Napthine Government's
commitment to give young Victorians more
opportunities to get involved in their local community
and develop skills that will help them in education and
along employment pathways,’ Ms Staley said.
There are seven groups involved; those pertinent to
our area are:
 Central Goldfields Shire Council which will receive
$125,000 to fund programs that help young people
connect with the community;
 Inglewood and Districts Health Service which will
receive $100,000 to deliver the Engaging and
Supporting the Youth of South Loddon Program; and
 Goldfields Employment and Learning Centre which
will receive $90,000 to deliver employment, work
placement and training programs for young people.
29 October 2014
Mr Smith said the investment in the Ripon electorate
forms part of the Napthine Government's $12 million
Engage program.
‘Through the Engage program, more than 100
Victorian organisations are assisting young people to
make the most of volunteering and mentoring
opportunities, enabling them to develop wide-ranging
skills for education, training and employment,’ Mr
Smith said.
Mr Turner said the Napthine Government is
committed to partnering with local organisations to
support young people.
‘The Engage program is another example of how the
Coalition Government is working with the community
to give young people more opportunities to follow
their dreams and achieve their best,’ Mr Turner said.

to honour a great lady of history who was born in
Carisbrook in 1873. Now with a memorial centre close
by, the cairn is clearly noticed and visitors can read the
information boards on Tilly’s achievements and gain
the benefits of the surrounding sensory garden.
A show of support came from Dunolly with the honour
of Queen Victoria and her entourage in attendance.
Aston family descendants attended and some came
from as far away as the Grampians to celebrate Tilly
‘The year 1895 began with the six colonial Premiers
meeting in Hobart to discuss Federation and make
decisions. It ended with eight insignificant unknown
blind people led by Tilly Aston meeting to discuss the
future of blind people and make decisions. Not in their
wildest dreams could either group have imagined the
outcome ‘- J. W. WILSON AM.

Most people like chocolate, but I prefer chips
I can feel them going through my lips
With that lovely salty taste
Not one of them would I waste.
I did something I’ve not done before
I locked the keys outside the door
I realised the mess I was in
Some days you just can’t win.
I sit at night watching TV
With a big bag of chips on my knee
They do make a bit of a mess
But I just couldn’t care less.
I rang up all the people I knew
Although I only know a few
To climb out the window would be a risk
And I may even break a disc.
Chocolate does awful things to your hips
But you don’t have to worry with chips
I don’t have to worry because I am slim
And very healthy and full of vim.
I then had a feeling of panic
Just as if I was on the Titanic
I never liked being locked in spaces
Where I couldn’t see any other faces.
People give me chockies as a gift
But they don’t ever give me a lift
I always give them all away
Or keep them until someone comes to stay.
I decided I would do some chores
So I cleaned out cupboards and washed the floors
The house had never looked so clean
And no one here for it to be seen.
I like to go out and see a movie
Something real good and groovy
And just sit and munch and munch
I’m sure people would like to give me a punch.
The cat then started to cry and cry
And I knew exactly why
He’s always been such a clean cat
And wouldn’t do a thing like that.
When we go for nice long trips
I always take my bag of chips
Without them I know I’d die
As there’s nothing else I would try.
Elizabeth Rickards
At last a friend came and let me out
And I felt relieved without a doubt
Tomorrow I’ll get a new lock on the door
And I won’t do that anymore.
Elizabeth Rickards

Hundreds of forest and park tracks and roads across
Victoria will re-open in time for the Melbourne Cup
weekend - starting on Saturday 1 November 2014.
Department of Environment and Primary Industries
(DEPI) Planning Manager Tony Dowler said: ‘Roads and
tracks are closed temporarily to protect them from
damage during the wetter months each year as part of
DEPI and Parks Victoria’s seasonal road closure
‘These roads and tracks were closed over winter and
spring for public safety and to protect track surfaces as
well as water quality and the forest environment,’ Mr
Dowler said.
‘While most of the closed roads and tracks which we
are re-opening are part of the regular seasonal
closures, there are also some being opened following
the completion of repairs to damage caused by storms
and bushfire.’
‘Some roads may remain closed because of ongoing
repair works.’
Chris Rose, Parks Victoria’s General Manager Regional
Services said: ‘While we have made every effort to
ensure visitors have access for the opening weekend,
drivers need to be prepared to come across fallen trees
and other debris in some places.’
‘DEPI and Parks Victoria thank the many Four Wheel
Drive Victoria volunteers who put in hundreds of hours
of work to assist with the maintenance and promotion
of seasonal road closures for the ongoing protection of
Victoria’s parks and forests,’ Mr Rose said.
‘It’s great to see volunteers so committed to working in
partnership for the betterment of Victoria’s natural
Visitors are encouraged to obtain the most up- to-date
information on access into forest and park areas before
