Newstead Echo 100 years ago

JUNE 6, 1917.
Last year the planting of trees in Newstead West was suggested but postponed but on this occasion no residents in that part were present.  It was ultimately decided to recommend the Shire Council to plant Hilliers Street towards the Tennis Court and if the Newstead West residents will co-operate in Canrobert and Simpson Street.  The Shire Council is to be requested to supply as before the trees and guards and the residents will assist in the planting.  It is to be hoped that the matter will be taken up as energetically as last year.
