Historical Signage Installed
The Historical Signage was installed in the Common on Friday 16th August, 2019 !
There are five signs mounted around a stand of eucalypts in the Common. Each covers an aspect of our history starting from the pre-colonial story of the Bunurong people, colonial settlement, important village buildings, rural industries, visitors and our coastal heritage. The display is very tasteful and appropriate - quite understated and very well suited to the great site chosen.
This has been a joint project of the Flinders District Historical Society (FDHS) and the SCA, This sub-committee successfully obtained a $5,000 grant from the Shire to design and commission educative signs bearing information about the key people, buildings, sites and events in the history of Shoreham.
Stand by for the official opening!
The successful historical signage erected at Flinders by the FDHS prompted the formation of a sub-committee of the SCA to look into the possibility of erecting historical signage in Shoreham.
The Common was the logical place for the signage to be installed. The project was therefore held over while the Placemaking Stage 1 project ran its course and also while the parking study (which affects the perimeter of the Common) was undertaken.
A display of the material, the proposed siting of the signs on The Common and a mock-up of the proposed signage were very well received at the SCA Public Meeting on Saturday, 16th March 2019.
