Lost News - April 2019


This month, my esteemed colleague Richard Cornish is taking a break to look after his mum so I decided to shake things up a bit. I have wanted to do a story on our photographer Danny Wootton for so long now but he is incredibly shy. So with a promise that we will do less talking and more looking at photos, he agreed to sit down with me for a chat. See what happened on Page 8. 

We have also added a new regular column called Lost Property. Let's face it, most of us are obsessed with property, houses, interior styling and of course, gorgeous photography so we couldn't help but create a regular column that gives us the licence to poke around kickass houses every month. Why wouldn't you? 

I found it nigh impossible to only pick 5 reasons to visit the region this month so here are some that are equally as fabulous: 

On Friday 19 April, we are heading to Animus Distillery for another Gin & Sonic Party. This time its being held at their Kyneton distillery in Piper Street. A free event, you get to try out delicious cocktails, G&T's (of course) and listen to DJs spinning some cool tunes. Next door at Piper St Food Co they'll be cooking some pizzas but you need to get there early as they sell our pretty quick. There's also a bus running from Castlemaine for only $20 which gets you a free G&T. Check out Animus on Facebook for more details. 

And early next month on Sunday 5 May, the Palais in Hepburn Springs will be hosting a Gala Fundraiser Concert for the Hepburn Wildlife Shelter. This is an incredible volunteer run shelter that run on the smell of an oily rag looking after injured and orphaned wildlife across the area. Starting at 1pm some of the regions finest musicians will entertain you all afternoon whilst Archer will host a kids corner for the youngsters. $10 on door. palais-hepburn.com 

So until next time, have a safe and happy Easter. Be careful on the roads and keep your eyes out for wildlife.
