Why Muriel Matters matters

Not so long ago an elderly Australian lady could be found most days at the Hastings Public Library thumbing the various newspapers and keeping up to date on current events. Few knew that this lady had, at one time in her youth, filled up the columns of these very same publications  with some of her own exploits. The aging lady’s name was Muriel Matters and, sitting in her library chair, she could scarcely have imagined that a building down the road would one day be named in her honour. Steven Glenn Anderson speaks to Frances Bedford, secretary of the Muriel Matters Society in Australia about the life of this fascinating suffragist and what the historical society named after her has been up to so far this year.

It’s all systems go for Christmas charities

Christmas is a busy time for charities working with homeless people and families short of the resources to provide for themselves at the toughest time of the year. This is especially true for those charities with a Christmas focus, such as Surviving Christmas, which will be providing its usual seasonal hospitality. Another event has been arranged at the YMCA. Nick Terdre (himself a Surviving Christmas volunteer) reports. Photos by Surviving Christmas.
