Phillip Island & District Historical Society

Our collection now in storage!

Last updated on 17-Oct-21


What an amazing effort by our committee and other members upon completion of recording, wrapping and packing all of our collection! Thanks to Steve and staff from Phillip Island Removalists who dismantled all our archiving shelving from the storeroom and archive rooms, set it up in our storage facility, and transferred all our collection carefully and neatly onto the shelves. Here are 2 photos of the storage unit with our collection now safely housed for the next 2 years or so until the new Cowes Cultural Centre built and we move into a new museum and storage space. Our thanks to Bass Coast Shire Council for funding the storage unit for our society. Incidentally, our volunteers always write their hours down in our volunteer hours record book and the total for the past 12 months for their combined hours is over 10,000 hours!
