The Tatura Guardian - - News - By Tara Whitsed The launch be­gins at 2 pmat the Tatura Ir­ri­ga­tion and Wartime Camps Mu­seum, 45 Ho­gan St, Tatura, on Thurs­day, Au­gust 24.

Af­ter his trav­els over­seas, Evert Worm saw a need for the town of Tatura to have its own tourism map.

‘‘Most of the tourist places over there would have maps, which is what en­ticed me to push ahead with the project,’’ Mr Worm said and added that it was some­thing Tatura had lacked for years.

Mr Worm said he be­gan the project in Fe­bru­ary this year when he went about con­struct­ing and print­ing a dou­ble-sided map of the town and its sur­rounds.

‘‘It high­lights what we have to of­fer in Tatura,’’ he said.

Af­ter liv­ing in the town for the past 45 years, Mr Worm said he had spent much of his time as pres­i­dent of the Tatura His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, and he of­ten manned the Tatura Mu­seum.

‘‘We have a lot of peo­ple com­ing through ask­ing ‘Where is this or that?’,’’ he said. ‘‘Tatura has a lot to of­fer.’’ Af­ter work­ing in­de­pen­dently to cre­ate the maps, Mr Worm said some key busi­nesses came on board as spon­sors.

‘‘All the money from the spon­sors goes back into the mu­seum,’’ he said.

Mr Worm will launch the map this Thurs­day at the Tatura Mu­seum and is en­cour­ag­ing com­mu­nity mem­bers to come along.

‘‘We’ll have a cuppa and some dig­ni­taries will be in at­ten­dance,’’ he said.

Thrilled: Tatura’s Evert Worm is pleased to an­nounce the Map of Tatura has been com­pleted and will be launched this Thurs­day.
