APOLOGIES: David Mitchell and Bill Sibley.

PREVIOUS MINUTES: Minutes of the November 2015 meeting were moved Anne, seconded Leo.

BUSINESS ARISING:
Angaston Station Meeting: Bill Gransbury, Ian Williamson and Theo Marks have been attending these.

Angaston Bridge 150th Anniversary: Andrew Rosenzweig made a movie of this event on the day. Over 100 people attended. Bill Gransbury thanked Siobahn, Elizabeth and others for their help on the day.

CORRESPONDENCE:
IN – None.
OUT – None.

FINANCIAL REPORT: $15,232.81 in bank but numerous accounts were passed at the meeting.
A $1,500 map restoration grant cheque has been received.

BLACKSMITH SHOP: Double sided tear drop signs that rotate in the wind would be good to help alert visitors/tourists when the shop is open. Visitor numbers dropping off – this is thought to be caused by Angas Park closure, Angaston Abbey now closed as well, no more Cocky or Butcher Van on site.
New leather needed in bellows
History Month opening times May 26-29 from 12-4 p.m. Thursday/Friday and 1-4 p.m. Saturday/Sunday.
Bradley Saegenschnitter also attended part of the meeting and outlined his plans for a new Blacksmith Shop video/film/CD that he would like to make. Running for 3-4 minutes it could be displayed on a “touch screen” device in the shop.

HISTORY MONTH: It was decided to hold this from May 27-29 from 10-4 p.m. On the Friday night from 7.30 to 9.00 p.m. it is hoped to have Jodie Scott from Artlab as guest speaker. The event would concentrate on the recently restored Angaston Map as well as other maps over the years. To enhance the event it was felt that a display of photographs of historical town houses as well as some that have been demolished. Also a brief history of owners of various houses/buildings/businesses would also be of value. Anthony can find a lot of house/land ownership information on the internet through the Land Titles.
An article in ‘The Leader’ asking people for Angaston house photographs/maps could also be of benefit.

ANGASTON’S 175TH BIRTHDAY: This is a work in progress during 2016 and early 2017 before dates/functions set.

DISCOVER ANGASTON TRAIL – Bill Gransbury is working on this in conjunction with Regional Heritage Group.

BLACKSMITH SHOP: www.angastonblacksmith.weebly.com
Double sided tear drop sign has been purchased and is on display.
Television Show (Channel 10) “Totally Wild” filmed at the shop on June 17 for about three hours. They will advise Bill Gransbury of the screening date

When planning for the shed/carpark at the back of the shop, the swing/ploughs, etc. will be stored at Robert Broad’s home until the work is finished.

It was felt that we failed to advertise ourselves at the event, eg no flyers/posters, etc of what we are/do. This should be addressed at our next event.
- Steady stream of visitors to the display at the Old Union Chapel.
- Successful and enjoyable social night – 35 people on the Friday night and heard Chris Payne the senior painting conservator at Artlab and Mount Pleasant resident.
- The display was attended by Keyneton Primary School – Weather conditions on Friday may have stopped a few visitors?
- Book on the origins of Angaston’s Street Names and photos are for sale thanks to Siobhan - $10 per member and $15 including postage for non members.
- The Old Town Map of Angaston identifies the name of the Creek through Angaston as Spring Brook and it should be recognised as such. It is going on display at the Barossa Library’s history room.

ANGASTON’S 175TH BIRTHDAY: More possible events to coincide with the year long party are an Angaston 2017 calendar featuring historic photographs, specific events on specific days, eg. Angaston Show, Vintage Festival, football season starts, Christmas Parade Night, etc.
Also dates could have significant historic events on them eg. May 1, George Fife Angas born on this day in 1789; July 30, 1871, William Salter, founder of Saltram Winery died; February 7, 1937, Angaston Town Hall Annexe opened; December 14, 1968, last passenger train to Angaston and February 20, 1982 Wanera Inn burnt down.

BAROSSA – A VISION REALIZED: Barry reported that a number of local historians are planning to update the book – Barossa – A Vision Realized. The book covers up to 1900 and the new group hope to cover 1900 to 1950 with the view that in 50 years time the next 50 years will be covered and so on.

ST. MICHAEL’S SWORD: Bill will contact Tania Paull at The Barossa Council on this missing sword from Angaston Soldiers’ Memorial St. Michael’s Statue as the public has again raised this issue. Grants may be possible and the question of whether replacing it with a “costly” and probably “stealable” version or whether to just do a cheaper “non-stealable” version is another problem?
