Hi MC :) 

I am currently researching Majors Creek on behalf a direct descendant of Major William Sandys Elrington and am hoping you could provide me with some assistance and guidance - especially with any information, images you may know exist on William's lfe and times whilst living there.

I am amazed that I can't find even a sketch of the man or his family. Would you happen to know if there is any please?

I have put together quite an amount from websites and Trove and am happy to share what I have if its of interest to you.

Thank you

Best Regards

Kim

What a pity Rudi did not talk to me about his concerns with the Black Walnut trees.

They were planted small as they do not like their tap root disturbed. Moving them has more than likely ensured that they will die.  A quick phone call and I could have explained that to Rudi.

Hello!  I'm hoping you may be able to put me in touch with someone who is interested in renting a house/cabin/caravan over the Major's Creek Festival weekend this year (20-22 Nov) to some Canberra folk.  We would be happy to rent it for the whole week if that is more attractive.  We would need beds for 4 adults, at a minimum.  (The number of beds would determine if our adult children get invited!)  Thank you very much!  Cheers, Sonia

Curiosity got the better of me and I went to have a look at the newly renovated ladies Toilets at the rec ground this morning.

What transformation they look wonderful, Craig has done a terrific job.  Better than the Block!!!

Dear David ,

We are presently trying to contact the various sites in regards to camping on the Majors Creek Recreation and have it rectified to save future embarrassment.  Information on these sites was never supplied by the trust. Thank you for giving us the names of the websites. All information in regards to our reserve can now be found on the Majors Creek Recreation Reserve website.

Dear Brian (OAM) and Chris - my wife and I were treated with hostility by a guy who drove up in a ute with his wife, marched over to us by the tennis courts and said the rec ground was off limits as they were having a political gathering at 6pm, and hitch our van back, and more or less to clear off and find somewhere else as none of that area was available and that children would be wanting to play where we were. I note the children's playground is about 400m away by the road. At 5pm we were absolutely the only ones. He described himself as president of the local association. There are many camping sites that describe the MC rec ground as pet friendly, and camping friendly, I suggest you google them and correct them. Cheers

I have been reading with interest the comments in regards to our village and take exception to the residents being called as hostile and unfriendly.  I have lived here all my life in the village being involved in many organizations including a trustee of our recreation reserve for over 50 years. During these years I have personally welcomed many individuals and groups to our reserve many of whom return annual for Christmas parties and a get together. We as a trust are working hard to maintain and improve the facilities on the reserve making it something  our village can be justly proud.  Information in regards to the reserve can be found on the reserves website http://recreationreserve.majorscreek.org.au.

Sorry to hear David did not enjoy his time at Majors Creek, we all love living here.

A few comments on your post David, the bbq area could not have been locked it is open, there are no walls on 2 sides. The room next to it is locked as it is used for storage. We all supply our own gas bottle when we want to bbq, People are welcome to use the bbq area anytime.

The lovely big shelter area is available anytime to anyone as well. Plenty of tables and seats to enjoy a quite drink as the sun goes down too.

Someone has posted information on those camping sites , I think, without even having been here. There has never been showers at the Rec BUT you can go to the Pub and for a small fee use their amenities.

Sorry you were here when the long awaited renovations had started on the toilet block. Boy are they going to be fancy!  We  have been waiting for years to get a chance at updating them.

So David, next time you are passing through try again, the newly renovated toilet block should be up and running by then. Bear in mind the labor  is all volunteer and things can go slowly. 

We welcome Clubs that come here and we can't be all that bad as several come year after year, even without a shower block!

We are proud of our  village as you no doubt would have been able to see in the well maintained Rec ground and the mowed street verges       ( again volunteer) we all love living here in small Community.

One thing I have to say, the Rec has been no dogs for as long as I have lived here, and the locals respect that. I do not like the idea of small children stepping in doggy doo, it really is hard to scrape off a protesting child without getting it all over the adult.

Cheers

Chris
