“Murder at Christmas”- it’s back!

The previously highly anticipated presentation by Dr Anthony Stimson, which was postponed due to COVID-19, is now back on our calendar in early August. Real-life drama in our own neighbourhood, now mostly forgotten but set to be revived at this year’s Frank Hurren Memorial presentation.

This will be a popular event and RSVPs are essential

All details in the flyer below.

Flinders Column On-line

For many years it has been a goal of the Society to make our collection available on-line to reach a world-wide audience. Our facebook page and website have gone a small way towards achieving this goal, but we are limited by a lack of volunteers to assist in digitising what is at present a very non-digital collection.

We would welcome assistance in this task. Volunteer

Nevertheless, progress continues and today we can announce that the earliest of the society’s newsletters, from 1978, are now available on our website and we hope to add many more in the future. Look for the “Publications” menu on our home page and choose “Past Issues of the Flinders Column”, or simply click or tap here

Financial members of the Society will continue to receive regular printed issues of the current Flinders Column, as part of their membership subscription and we will only be publishing bygone issues on-line.

Our next event; “Getting Around in Trucks & Buses”

We all have stories within our families of travel in trucks and buses over the years and within the Hills community many memories revolve around those day to day activities from the past. Come and enjoy our presentation and join the discussion that is bound to ensue.

Our May event will be another popular evening so please RSVP as shown in the flyer below.
