On Thursday the 1st of April, twenty people from the blind and vision impaired community caught the Frankston Line Train to Cheltenham Pioneer Cemetery for a fascinating historical tour, facilitated by Rosemary Reddick, President of Friends of Cheltenham and Regional Cemeteries.
It was a warm 28 degree day and while the group stood under an ancient Lilly Pilly Tree for shade, they learnt about notable interments like, brave Molly Hill (1902-1932) who was a champion cross country skier and Eliza (? - 1877), a member of the Bunurong tribe that ranged over much of the Port Phillip coastal area before white settlement.
After this tour, the group set off on a three kilometre walk around Cheltenham Park. The highlight of this walk was meeting a blind white poodle who became the group's unofficial mascot for the day!
After the walk, tired legs could be rested at Johnny Dante, a welcoming cafe next door to the Cheltenham Train Station that served delicious paninis and according to participant, Pheobe, "The best iced coffee I've ever had!".
Thank you to Bayside City Council for all their support.
