Fanny to be honoured

Renowned goldfields pioneer and Australia’s first known female voter Fanny Finch will be immortalised with the installation of a permanent memorial on her grave site at the Castlemaine Cemetery at Campbells Creek next Wednesday January 22.
Community members participated in a working bee last week to ensure the cemetery is looking its best for the special event. See the Mail for the full story.
