  • 5 Jun 1911, FLIGHTS FROM FIRE. ESCAPES BY NIGHT. DRESSING IN THE BUSH.
    BEACONSFIELD UPPER. Saturday.— On Friday night a cottage, owned by Mrs Larkin, and built on the Quamby settlement at Beaconsfield Upper, was destroyed by fire. Mr Barnett, a son-in-law, and two youths were staying at the cottage, and retired to bed early. When aroused at half past 8 o'clock the fire had such a hold that the occupants had just time to snatch up their clothes and escape. They dressed in the bush.15
  • 10 Jul 1919, Beaconsfield. -o- A social was held in the Public hall on Friday night to welcome home several "diggers" who had recently returned. The hall was tastefully decorated with gum leaves and flags of the Allies. Almost 200 people were present, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Cr Martin officiated as chairman and welcomed the boys home on behalf of the residents of Beaconsfield. Cr Anderson also welcomed them back, and said the council would stand by the soldiers and see that they got a fair deal. A short musical programme arranged by the secretary (Mr Williams) was greatly appreciated, the following contributing:-Mrs F. Richardson, Miss G. May, Miss E. Anderson, Messrs Kerr, Paxton, and Meekin. Mrs Cliff and Miss Williams played the accompaniments. The boys got a very warm reception when they were asked to come on the platform to receive a gold medal each, given by the residents. Cr Groves, M.L.A., made the presentations, and in a stirring speech, roused great enthusiasm. Following are the names of those who received medals: -Sgt G. Grant, Cpls C. Whiteside and Barnett, Ptes Luke, Bryant, R. Adamson, Jack Adamson, J. B. Adamson, M.M., Warmbrunn, Brown, R. Williams, F. F. Williams, Pettit, Sweeney, and M. McNaughton. Cpl Whiteside responded on behalf of the"diggers." Supper was then handed round, after which dancing was indulged in until the wee sma' hours.16
