FOLLOWING a grant from Create NSW, the Oberon District Museum is happy to announce the installation of a glass protective barrier around the 1930s streetscape which was built by a group of seniors at the Oberon Day Care Centre back in 1989.

The streetscape is one of the key showpieces of the museum, and the committee is delighted with the extra "touch" added by the glass borders.

With another grant from the Foundation for Regional and Rural Renewal, the committee is planning to erect two sheds within the coming months for equipment which is outside in the weather.

The Oberon District Museum Society held its AGM recently with a good turnout of members.

The new committee is Col Roberts president, Laurie McMahon vice president, Pam Dellow secretary, Hamish Gidley-Baird treasurer, and Denise Harper, Warren Rawson and Maree Arrow as committee members. Maree is also publicity officer.

Members endorsed a new strategic plan which aims to take the museum away from duplicating artefacts that are well displayed in other Oberon museums, and towards a focus on steam and horse-drawn equipment in outside displays, as well as the timber industry in Oberon.

To find out more, phone Pam Dellow on 0418 671 754, email oberonmuseum@gmail.com or visit www.oberonmuseum.com.

Opening hours are every Sunday from 10.30am-4pm and the first Saturday of each month from noon-4pm.
