Description of the charities activities and outcomes
The Phillip Island and District Historical Society's mission and aims include the acquisition and preservation of authentic historical records. During the year under review the society has successfully transferred all the video and audio tapes within our collection to a digital format for preservation. We have also continued with cataloguing and scanning of historic photographs and documents to digital format for uploading online for the benefit of remote access. The activities also form part of our risk mitigation strategy.
Another aim of the Society is to help and use influence in the preservation of places of historical interest. This year the Society had the opportunity of being actively involved with the local council in a study to identify places of significant heritage values within our local region. This work will result in the Heritage Gaps Study and Prioritisation Framework which will progress to a planning scheme amendment, ensuring the protection of significant historical places and structures.
By supporting the research of a local author, the society assisted in the publication of volume II of At Home on the Hill - a 250 page glossy book covering the lives of all pioneers buried within the Phillip Island Cemetery from 1901 to 1920.
Unfortunately the Society was forced to close its Museum during the COVID lockdown, but nevertheless we continued to produce regular Newsletters as well as updates to our website providing information on local history events and projects, which encourages community involvement and sparks interest in the preservation and value of local history.
