Former CFS site

 Community consultation re former CFS site

 The MT&DCA survey in 2013  revealed strong community support for a visitors' park at the former CFS site on Townsend Street. We have followed this up with two draft concept plans for the area and have sought  community comment so that we could take to the Adelaide Hills Council a proposal that reflects community views. 

As part of our community consultation we  hosted, with Adelaide Hills Council, an Open Day  at the Old Coach House. This was an opportunity to comment on the draft concept plan.  It was also an opportunity to  comment on the proposal to host a sculpture that forms part of the Adelaide Hills Sculpture Trail.   Residents completed the survey regarding the future of the former CFS shed. Opinion was divided, although a significant minority supported its retention. The majority favoured the removal of the shed  because this would enhance the appearance of the park.

History forum

Two presentations on Wednesday 25 June 2014 reflected the significance of George Dunn, one of the first settlers at Mt Torrens:

Simon Holdback (formerly in the tribute group to The Wiggles)  performed the George Dunn soliloquy, originally created for the 150th anniversary of Mt Torrens and which received rapturous applause.

Peter Dunn,  great, great grandson of George (founder of the town) and himself a wonderful raconteur,  reflected on the colourful lives of George and his brothers  James (after whom Dunnfield is named), Charles (after whom Charleston is named).and John (flour miller and businessman at Mt Barker and State parliamentarian).
