‘Monster’ website launch at Chewton

All roads led to Chewton on Monday for the launch of the Chewton Domain Society’s (CDS) new highly anticipated ‘Monster Meeting’ website.
The special launch event took place outdoors in Chewton’s Ellery Park due to COVID restrictions.
A small but enthusiastic masked crowd were on hand as Bendigo West MP Maree Edwards and Parks Victoria chief ranger Karen Doyle launched the new offering.
CDS president Helen McGeachin welcomed the editor of the new website Pat Healy.
Pat had already been receiving accolades for the work done, a small group having been given viewing permission prior to the launch. 
Pat acknowledged the work done by CDS members in actively recording Chewton’s history, and the new website which now focuses on one aspect of that history – the Monster Meeting.
“It tells the long overlooked story of how the transformation of the government, economy and society of the colony of Victoria began at the Diggers’ Monster Meeting at Forest Creek on December 15, 1851,” Ms Healy said.
