Community HodGson–Hunters Ltd: A city house transplanted to Dalby DALBY FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY INC. The firm, Hodgson-Hunters Ltd was established in 1911 with shareholders. The firm entered the lists boldly, not merely as local competitors, but in declared competition with the big city houses. The premises were situated at the corner of Cunningham and Patrick Streets; they were commodious, amply lighted, ventilated and had a Cunningham Street frontage, with three imposing plate-glass windows, as well as extending eighty feet along Patrick Street. One section was built of brick, whilst the other section was of wooden construction that was built in 1897. The principals [names unknown] were city men from the same houses who had a large country order business and they wanted the firm to be a “City House transplanted to Dalby” because the one aim of the firm was an absolute guarantee that satisfaction was assured or a return of the Co., Warwick before coming to Dalby.

This was the first time the new motor fire engine was used by the Fire Brigade and they drew water from Myall Creek, about 200 yards away. The damage from the fire was estimated to cost £10,000 to the stock and consequently a sale to clear the stock was held in June, that decision was made by the shareholders and also for the firm to go out of footwear. Mr. Hunter was an outstanding citizen of the town as well as managing director of the firm Hodgson-Hunter Ltd; he served six years on the municipal council; as Mayor and as Chairman of the Finance Committee. He was a member of the following committees, the Hospital Committee; the Chamber of Commerce; the Caledonian Society and the P & A Association. He was also very involved with the building of the Soldiers Memorial in the recreation reserve along with Mr. C G Knowles and Mr. George Geddes.

Community Chamber Chat CHALLENGES AND CHANGE IN 2015 Dalby Chamber of Commerce and Industry has seen in the New Year by addressing economic challenges through introducing changes. Member Services Manager, Trudi Bartlett, said, “Chamber has started 2015 strongly by implementing some changes to our typical annual activities. We have identified what Chamber does very well and what our members love and we are continuing with these activities in 2015 whilst introducing even more services and events for Chamber members,” Ms Bartlett said. “Our board and sub-committee members have identified that Dalby is going through a challenging time economically and Dalby Chamber of Commerce and Industry is focused on assisting our members as much as possible through promotions, networking and facilitating opportunities to access new customers, clients and contracts,” she said. “Chamber has now introduced a calendar year membership allowing new businesses to join now and enjoy a whole year of benefits. We have 23 new members for this year already. Chamber is looking forward to a year filled with events, opportunities and avenues for all of our members to promote their business.”

14 – March 2015

It is that time of the year again; all the local country shows are happening again, and the weekend of 10th and 11th April is Dalby’s turn, and we will be presenting our 145th show. The committee this year is making some changes to the presentation of the event to make it more inviting for the many patrons who will attend. We will have the new Knox Pavilion available for the trade displays, which were on the veranda of the main pavilion. We hope this will ease some of the congestion in the pavilion. Also in the Knox Pavilion will be the education displays, the Lego competition, the photography and the fruit and vegetable sections. It is KRSHGWRWKHQEHDEOHWRVSUHDGRXWWKHƓQHDUWVWRPDNHWKDWVHFWLRQ easier to admire.

Out around the grounds we hope to have entertainment that will suit everyone. The sheep dog trials, which are being sponsored mainly by Telstra, have become a strong event with last years competition lasting 3 days, and the champion prize going to Victoria. Horse numbers are increasing quickly, so that should keep the ring entertainment quite busy. We hope the season becomes more favourable for the cattle section. Entertainment in sideshow alley should be as good as always with the usual attractions arriving. There will also be roving entertainment around the grounds, with the main attraction being the Crack Up Sisters. On the main veranda of the pavilion, there will also be entertainment in the form of fashion parades on Friday and Saturday, and on Friday afternoon will be Dalby’s showcase of local talent, which is hoped to run for several hours by local businessman, Richard O’Shea.
