Health Services celebrate 125 years

Monday, 27 October 2014
This November marks 125 years of continuous health services within the Mortlake community.

On Friday 14th November from 1.30 pm, the Terang & Mortlake Health Service is teaming up with the Mortlake and District Historical Society (MDHS) to present "A Spoon Full of Sugar" to celebrate the 125 years of health services in the town.

Members of the community are encouraged to attend and celebrate this milestone event to be held at the Mortlake Health Service, 23 Boundary Road, Mortlake.

MDHS Secretary, Virginia Branton-Hunt said the day will have both formal and informal parts. "We are going to plant a tree in recognition of Mrs E J Claridge, who was a tireless fundraiser for the hospital. The major presentation will be a memorial that is very broad and recognises all staff and community members who have been part of the Mortlake Hospital," she said. "It will be a large urn on a pedestal with a plaque to remember all those who have contributed to the health services in Mortlake. We'll also be cutting a medical-themed commemorative cake and the CWA ladies will be putting on an afternoon tea."
