On Maldon Pond

Maldon Pond has had its bottom cleaned!

The iconic small dam at the Castlemaine Road entrance to Maldon was visited a few  weekends ago by a huge digging machine that proceeded to chew out reeds, water lilies, mud, silt and a few assorted turtles and freshwater crustaceans. The resulting mud pile now decorates the lower slopes of The Pond. 

Maldon Swap Meet Returns

Maldon’s second annual Swap Meet will happen Sunday, 7 June on the Maldon Racecourse Reserve. 

The same successful location as last year’s inaugural event. And if last year is anything to go by it promises to be another entertaining, informative and possibly lucrative event for all-comers. 

New Book for Nick

Well-known Newstead-based writer, editor and publisher Nick Hudson has had a new edition of his book Modern Australian Usage published.  

This book is an essential guide for all writers and editors and anyone who is interested in the use of language.
