Maldon In Winter

Maldon Art Show

After the official opening tonight, the  Maldon Art Show begins tomorrow (Saturday 2 July) at the Maldon Community Centre and runs until Sunday 10 July.  

It showcases the work of artists from across Central Victoria. A wide range of work using a variety of media will be exhibited.  The judge is well known artist Julie Millowick.  Photography is her field and she is the Chair of the Castlemaine State Festival.    

The Maldon Art Show is being organised again this year by Pam Lyons on behalf of Maldon Inc.  There are seven categories, including a people’s choice award.  This year, there is an extra award that has been sponsored by Anita from Simply Magnificent.  Anita will select the winner of this award, which is called ‘A Splash of Colour’ and honours the memory of Melanie Sunners.  

With the Maldon Men’s Coffee Club setting up the screens and doing the heavy work, the Art Show is being hung by MANet members.  Entry to the Art Show is $2 and it is open from 11am to 4pm.  

New Brigade Group

There has been a major change in the organisational structure of the local fire brigades groups.  

The old Maldon group of brigades (Maldon, Baringhup West and Walmer) has joined forces with the Newstead group of brigades (Newstead, Guildford, Fryerstown and Campbells Creek) to form a single group of seven brigades.  The name of the new brigades group is Strathloddon and the new arrangement comes into force today (1 July). 

Maldon Hospital Health Checks

Maldon Hospital, funded by Maldon Inc, will again provide free health checks to the community as part of Maldon in Winter after last year’s successful health checks at Maldon Football Club. 

This year’s checks, by a Maldon Hospital Registered Nurse, will be carried out at the Maldon Pharmacy between 10am and 1pm on Monday 18 July.
