Village in Focus: Yeoval
Alf Cantrell, celebrates an Australian icon
Banjo Paterson Museum, Yeoval.
Alf Cantrell and wife Sharon have been at the heart of the Yeoval community since they purchased their home there thirty-three years ago. They have enjoyed an active and ongoing involvement with The Yeoval Progress Association, Red Cross, the Historical Society and the Yeoval Show Society. Both are very proud of the Buckinbah Park and the Banjo Paterson Bush Park which they helped establish and the nine magnificent sculptures installed in the Parklands.
Their dedication to putting Yeoval on the map as the “Childhood Home of Banjo Paterson” has led to a State Premiers Award and a Regional Community and Achievement Award. The “Banjo Paterson… more than a Poet Museum”, overlooking the Buckinbah Creek and Buckinbah Station, is the result of many years of ongoing collecting and now houses a priceless collection of original letters, photos and writings, celebrating the life of Andrew Barton ‘Banjo’ Paterson.
Join Alf on Sunday 16th of February at the Museum, with entertainment from Chris McGinty and Cliff Crane who will be sharing his lifetime of research on the question 'Who was the man from Snowy River?', with a startling conclusion...
