Seymour Girl Guides turns 90
Residents are invited to help celebrate the 90th anniversary of Girl Guides in Seymour.
Celebrations, including a light afternoon tea, will be held on October 28 from 2 pm until 4.30 pm at the Seymour Girl Guide Hall in Edwards St.
If you would like to attend or know someone who was once a youth member, leader or part of the local association-support group of Seymour Girl Guides, they would love to see you there.
Please RSVP to Beryl Bebbington on 0438 358 744 before October 14.
We had a local resident drop
by THE TELEGRAPH office last week to inform us of a new email scam doing the rounds.
The gentleman said he had received an email asking him to update his details with the Commonwealth Bank.
The only problem was, he doesn’t have any accounts with Commonwealth Bank — a dead giveaway that the email was a hoax.
He notified the bank and local police and wanted other residents to be wary of the scam.
Railway station improvements
Facility improvements will be made at a number of local train stations in the coming months,
Bike cages will be installed at Seymour Railway Station, while bike hoops will be placed at Broadford, Tallarook and Avenel stations.
The infrastructure upgrades are part of the Victorian Government’s $22.5 million road and rail minor works program.
‘‘Additional bike cages and hoops at our local stations will provide better security for bike riders who wish to ride to their local station,’’ Member for Northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes said.
