GOLF GREENSBOROUGH GOLF CLUB WINDY OPENING DAY [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 5 April 1940

GOLF GREENSBOROUGH GOLF CLUB WINDY OPENING DAY Members of the Greensborough Golf Club did not turn out in force last Saturday to attend the official opening of the club's season. Deter red, no doubt by the wind blowing at gale force, only about 15 dared the elements. Yet strangely enough it was rather pleasant out on the fairways; slightly gusty as might have been expected, but the wind was cooler and more satisfactory than sweltering inside. The official opening ceremony was performed by Councillor Lines, who was introduced by Mr. E. Spares. Be fore he hit the first ball which opened the links for the 1940 season, the newly elected representative of the Greensborough Ward of Heidelberg City Council wished the club and its members every success. Mixed foursomes were 'plyed af te'rwards, and, as there wgre not enough g?entlenran to complete the foi~rs, some of the ladies partnered oric :another, and it,,vas one of these combinations which carried off the trophy.

Diamond Creek Water For Wattle Glen [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 5 April 1940

Diamond Creek Water For Wattle Glen Negotiations are proceeding between residents in the vicinity of the Post Office at Wattle Glen and the Heidelberg Council through Councillor Ryan for the extension of the water -ervice to the post office corner. At present the water has been taken as far as Mr. Middleton's property, but people beyond that point have to cart water in hot weather from the street hydrant in Diamond Creek. Residents have indicated their wil lingness to pay the cost of laying the pipes to the boundary of the Heid elberg City and Eltham Shire, and also to enter into a guarantee. As the Heidelberg Council has a number of secondhand 3 inch pipes available, it would only be a matter of paying for the labour. It would be necessary, however, for them to pay for the installation of a water meter. If a hydrant was established at the boundary, it would prove very beneficial to residents of Kangaroo Ground and Panton Hill in the dry weather.
