Chris moved that the society take on the project of installing the Keightley Town Clock on the premises, seconded Ted, carried. Bill Gransbury has already looked into it and it could cost up to $5,000 but a possible $1,000 in donations are already promised. The clock would be well out of vandalism way and would automatically change when daylight saving comes into effect. The house/shop is heritage listed, so if and when it gets sold, nothing will change as far as the clock or building is concerned.

Angas Park Fruit – Anne and Barry have spoken to Graeme Strathearn and Peter Manning. They have a host of material for the society to obtain. There is a shed in the old Dalgety (Coles) saleyard area on North Street which may be able to house articles such as the butcher van?

Barry and Chris may have items for a raffle fundraiser on the night. At the close of the meeting members perused old Doddridge Blacksmith Shop ledger books to note any items of interest to be on display for the About Time function.

1857 Angaston Map – Perhaps a grant to restore this map would be possible? The restorers said that it is an original map but it is not the first map of Angaston, it is actually the second one.

CORRESPONDENCE:

OTHER BUSINESS:
Last Train: Penrice Soda (ICI) closed its Adelaide plant yesterday and it is believed that because of this there will be no more stone trains from Adelaide to Penrice? In fact that probably means none from Gawler to the Barossa Valley area?
