Flinders Flower Show. SUCCESSFUL EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 5 December 1908
Flinders Flower Show., SUCCESSFUL EXHIBITION. The annual flower show at Flinders was held in the Mechanics' hall on the afternoon and evening of Saturday, November 21st. This event.certainly does not lose in popularity as time goes on, but each exhibition has shown an increase in magnitude as compared with the previous one. Although the show is held annually under the aus pices of the Flinders Agricultural and Horticultural Society, it can certainly claim to be more than a mere off-shoot of the "big show." In reality what has now grown into a very thriving little country Society is the outcome of the first flower.show organised by the ladies of the district some two years ago. As in previous years (with the exception of AMr D. M. Maxwell, who acted as honorary secretary on this occasion) the ladies were the principal workers, and are entitled to the main share of the credit for the success of the undertaking. Owing to so many ladies and gentlemen having given their very best efforts...

SORRENTO. A rather serious accident happened to a young fellow named Flately, son of Ser- geant-Major Flately, late of Franklin Barracks. He was riding a bicycle on his way to work, and when about the Church of England, the fork of the machine broke, and the rider was thrown to the ground, sustaining very nasty face wounds, splitting his lip, and losing seve ral teeth. He was taken to Dr. Bough- ton's surgery, had several stitches put in and the wounds dressed. The funeral of the late Mrs B. Sutton, senr., took place on Saturday afternoon, and was largely attended. A number of beautiful flowers were placed on the grave, including a wreath from the resi- dents of Sorrento. The prospect of having another good season is predicted.

TYABB. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 12 December 1908
TYABB. The annual concert in aid of the prize fund of the general picnic, which will be held on January 6th, was the most successful ye: held for the pur pose. Over £6 were raised, and as the committee are spending £5 in prizes, there will be a decent amount left for incidental expenses. A long programme was submitted, and each item was greatly appreciated. The entertainment terminated with a farce given by Messrs Will Thompson, Parsons, and Bidgood, who came out from M.ornington to assist. The store occupied by Mrs Whit bourne had a very narrow escape from demolition on Monday afternoon last, just after the storm had blown its worst. It is thought that a spark from a neighboring chimney had lodged in a starling's nest and had been smoulder ing before it broke out properly. Mr Whitbourne had just come home, when he noticed smoke espl,:ng through the roof. He immediately sent for assist ance, and started throwing water over the seat of the blaze. Messrs it. and G.
