THE GLENLYON A
group of Glenlyon art and history enthusiasts travelled to the Ballarat Art Gallery on Wednesday 23 May to see the exhibition of von Guerard paintings and sketch books from the 1850s. A guide to the display explained how von Guerard’s early life climbing volcanoes with his father ignited his love of geology. This love, as well as the influence of his father’s talent for painting miniatures, can be seen in the techniques displayed in the artist’s work. When von Guerard came to Australia he travelled extensively in Victoria, sketch book in hand, and took many commissions to paint landscapes for the colonial landholders. Two of his paintings, of Breakneck Gorge and Loddon Falls, are evidence of his being in our local area. He included in the works the minutest of details of people - animals as requested by the commissioners as well as the geological details which were his own passion. Amazingly, the sketches were so detailed that he painted the scenes from his sketchbooks, often years later, back in his studio. Many thanks to the Ballarat Art Gallery staff for putting on this amazing exhibition and to the knowledgeable and informative guide who communicated her own love for the paintings to our group. The next exhibition at the Gallery, from 23 June to 9 September, will be “Into Light” a display of French Impressionists. Lunch completed a delightful day in spite of Ballarat’s classic wet, grey and drizzling weather. Many thanks to Joy Durston for organising the trip and to Margret Lockwood for skilfully driving the bus.

Briefly Oak Tree Thank you to Carl Telfar and Sean Ludeke, from Hepburn Shire, for the excellent job they did with the tree that had to be removed from Barkly Street, Glenlyon. It is a great example of what can be achieved by communication and co-operation. It was sad to see that massive tree come down but it was also clear how far it had degenerated. It was very pleasing to see the new oak tree planted so quickly. It is hoped that the wood saved will be milled and used for projects, such as bench seats, around the Glenlyon Hall.

Ramblings from the Bramble Patch nights are longer and there T he is nothing worth watching on the
(free to air) television, but I do not mind. We are of an age when we enjoy the simple pleasures of fine wine, a good book and indulging in stimulating conversation or reverie beside an open fire. On such a night, with soft rain falling outside, I was mulling over the journey of the last nearly 20 years. When I first came to Glenlyon I was running away from the unhappiness of being widowed with changed financial circumstances. There was a curious mixture of exhilaration at my newly acquired independence along with the empty space previously occupied by my marriage. A first action was to try to fill the need for companionship with Bruce, the nondescript dog who was to become my constant companion. I found her as a rescue dog; the fact that she was a female did not alter the name I had already chosen. My city thinking suggested that I needed a male to make me feel safer in the countryside. How wrong! The wonderful people here embraced me and keep me safe. I knew I belonged here when, on the increasingly infrequent trips to the city, I felt the tension leave me as I turned onto the freeway with the anticipation of coming home to Bramble Cottage. Now, as I watch the winter cold replace autumn and summer sun I feel sorry for the city dwellers whose only response to changing seasons is to alter the setting on their airconditioner. Already, new-born lambs skip in the paddocks and all-too-soon spring will erupt in a mist of green on the trees in Barkly Street again and another year will pass. Just as the seasons turn, I have found love again with my dear Harold. My errant son, Benjamin, too, after a period of instability as he searched for his identity, has matured with his marriage to Felicity. Yes, at present life is good. I can only wish the same peace, healing and good fortune to all who move into this delightful corner of Godâ€™s earth.
In the Garden with Murrell By Murrell Osborne he plentiful rain in May followed by mild daytime temperatures in early June have been a great encouragement to weeds.
I have continued my war on weeds and my cleaning up of vegetable beds after Autumn production. The weather has also helped my plantings of radishes, spinach and broad beans and allowed the newly transplanted strawberries to flourish. Meanwhile we must keep putting manure on the vegetable beds in anticipation of Spring plantings.
Daylesford Field and Game By Jack Johns aylesford ran a 75 target Compak event for the June shoot in cold conditions. Jake set the grounds and tried three grounds instead of two. The score would be two out of three, with two good grounds but the number two ground just not right: a bit too tough and hard to see in the afternoon shadows. Still learning.

Solstice New Beginnings

to create out own traditions, rituals and beliefs as we wish.
For Pagans the significance of this shortest day of the year was marked by a number of rites, many of which have become absorbed into the Christian festival we now celebrate in December. For us, on the other side of the world, the significance of winter solstice in June is different. We are not as dependent on the length of daylight hours as our European farming ancestors, nor do we have the religious and cultural traditions at this time of year associated with it. Which means we are free

Many were happy just to share a drink and a barbequed sausage or baked potato with friends. For all of us, this is an event which can be what we want it to be. Join us on Sunday 24 June at the Dam and let it evolve.
Last year in Glenlyon we celebrated with a bonfire at the dam. This symbolically brought together the basic Solstice literally means standing still and that is precisely elements of fire and water, with the outdoors environwhat the earth does for a brief time in its elliptical path ment contributing air and earth.

Find under Foot
ork on the floor of the small kitchen at the Hall produced an unexpected treasure. Hidden underneath the floor, and under a disused doorway, was a piece of linoleum which exhibits all the signs of being an original feature of the building.
Early linos were constructed of jute backing, a cork dust layer and a covering of solidified linseed oil into which the pattern was added. These features, together with the geometric pattern, are consistent with the sample being in excess of a century old. It has been handed to George Jackson for framing and will become part of the historical collection at the Hall.
ver 25 interested community members from the Glenlyon area, Daylesford and Kyneton attended the Community Forum to meet with Amanda Millar and Hon Mary Wooldridge on Sunday 27 May. Mayor John Cottrell opened the meeting to introduce Amanda and Mary. Cr Cottrell outlined his vision for Hepburn Shire with an emphasis on managing projected urban growth. He pointed out that 36% of funding in Hepburn comes from government grants compared with only 10% from similar sources in metropolitan areas. Hepburn Shire is noted for its pristine environment, arts and culture and as being a wellness centre, Cr Cottrell said. Amanda Millar has been involved with politics for the past 35 years, since joining the Liberal Party at age 16. She has lived in Mt Macedon for over 20 years and is keenly interested in the issues involving Regional Victoria. Ms Millar is currently the Liberal member for Macedon and will be a candidate for the seat at the next State Election. Guest of Honour was Shadow Minister for Health Mary Wooldridge, having held the position of Minister for Health under the previous State Liberal Government. A range of topics was raised including transport, roads, education, internet access and health. An impassioned plea was delivered for an improvement in services to assist those with mental health and dependence issues and their families. The formal part of the afternoon was followed by the opportunity for informal discussion over a cuppa and finger food. Thank you to Robyne Head, President of the Daylesford Branch of the Liberal Party for organising the opportunity to discuss these important issues with political representatives.
Clark Ashley Smith: Sign writer, Artist of Many Mediums
ocal, interstate and international artist extraordinaire, Clark Ashley Smith draws on just about anything anywhere. Clark started as a sign writer in 1979 doing traditional handwritten and computer-cut vinyl signage as well as subcontracting for larger companies. Still working in this field and as a Porcupine Ridge resident, he believes in helping out the community with signs locally to save them having to travel further afield to Ballarat or Melbourne. Clark taught himself illusionary, 3D chalk pavement street art which he does on the ground or on walls, interacting with the public. Once introduced to custom face and body painting he found a whole new canvas, doing work privately for couples. Wishing to extend the body art into another form, Clark studied special effects in New Zealand. Using these techniques he has made two short films in Melbourne featuring some grisly effects such as gunshot wounds and amputations. In between he has found time to compete in international competitions for both body art and special effects and has been a featured artist at body art events. For a special treat, Clark can be seen creating his unique magic on the Glenlyon Hall forecourt at the next Market on Saturday 16 June. www.3dchalkartbyviking.com Altered Skin SFX Make Up & Prosthetics www.facebook.com/PorcupineRidgeVIC3461 Custom Body Art www.facebook.com/PorcupineRidgeDaylesford3461 3D 4D Chalk Pavement Art www.facebook.com/PavementChalkVIC346 Custom Signs www.facebook.com/PorcupineRidgeVICTORIA3461 Large Format Signwriting www.facebook.com/PorcupineRidge3461 Starnow SFX Artist www.starnow.com.au/clarkashleysmith
Men’s Shed Celebrate 10 Years By Andrew Azzopardi t’s refreshing these days to have a community organisation stick around and grow their membership. In May the Daylesford Men’s Shed held a dinner at the Daylesford Bowls Club Bistro for around 50 members and their partners to celebrate 10 years of the Shed’s operation.
The highlight of the evening was a presentation by founding member and facilitator, Andrew Azzopardi, who recounted how the three original members, Don Killeen, Colin Dunlop and himself, all from Wheatsheaf, attended a meeting at the Old Court House in October 2007 to establish a men’s group. The Daylesford Neighbourhood Centre, Hepburn Health Service and Hepburn Shire Council, influenced by the work at Creswick Men’s Shed, organised the meeting to develop a men’s support program. It was envisaged that a workshop or ‘shed’ could be constructed next to the old Court House to provide a space for men to get together, share skills and produce some community projects. The proposed site proved to be unsuitable. Over the next few months, a number of meetings were held and other men came on board including Ken Oakes, Richard Bevan, Ken Ferguson, Don Partington, Steve Jordan and David Robertson. Many were Wheatsheaf residents and as the process dragged on well into 2008, it was suggested jokingly that a private shed be constructed in that location. Thanks to Dan Harris and the John Staub, Richard Bevan, Ken Ferguson Don Partington and Colin Dunlop Daylesford Agricultural Society committee, outside the “chook shed” in the early days use of the Poultry Shed and Tom Ford Pavilion at Victoria Park was made available. The search for a more suitable long-term solution continued and during 2010, after a number of applications for State Government funding, the group weas successful with a $50,000 grant. A purpose-built shed was finally constructed at Victoria Park the following year. Members now meet there every Thursday for lunch and to work on a range of projects. During the evening a video was played of the Daylesford Men’s Shed Anthem showing as an accompaniment, the members in a range of activities. The song is a reworking of a traditional tune, Sussex by the sea, by member Richard Bevan, who had encouraged the members to lend their fine voices to this tale of men working together in solidarity. The night provided an opportunity for members who had been absent from the Shed to catch up and become re-acquainted. The evening followed a long tradition by the group, of an annual social occasion at the Daylesford Bowls Club. Wives, partners and family members of the men also enjoyed the opportunity to socialise while enjoying the excellent twocourse meal. The Daylesford Men’s Shed has always been about the men and their wellbeing first and a chance to share skills to develop personal and community projects second. The camaraderie between the men was clearly demonstrated at the dinner.
