One word for Jekyll & Hyde: wow
WE’RE just back from opening night and we have to say that Jekyll & Hyde is absolutely brilliant. Spread the word. Congratulations Karen and well done Michael, Bec, Bernadette, Serena, Alastair, cast and crew.
MMuDS, you’ve done Mansfield proud again.
Gilli Bruce, Mansfield caterers, entertainers and activity persons all added to the success of our 10th relay event.
Relay is a time of celebration and reflection - your dedication and involvement to raise funds for cancer research was a valuable contribution. Many thanks to all.
Gwen Gray, Chairperson and patron Mansfield Relay for Life (caboose is an American railroad term) were built at the Victorian Railways workshops at Newport during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
The guards van was designed to carry light freight and parcels, while the elevated seating allowed the guard to lookout through his skylight style window to check that none of the warning signals were missed by the engine driver or fireman as the train travelled along its journey.
There was also provision to carry small animals (dogs, etc) in a special compartment on either side of the guards van’s raised section.
We are most fortunate to have acquired this item back in 2014 for our railway precinct area and in keeping with the historical significance of the area, it provides an additional attraction for visitors.
It is hoped that additional funding can be found to complete its restoration.
The nearest location of another guards van that people can inspect is the historical precinct within the Port of Echuca.
Ross Vaughan, Mansfield
