It’s been an incredibly challenging 12 months for the Mount Alexander Vintage Engine Club (MAVEC) but they are delighted to have capped off 2020 on a high note with the official opening of their new shed and headquarters at the Dave Bennett Reserve at the Muckleford Railway Station.
The shed build project got underway in February with a team effort by members to raise the roof and poles and the Mail was there to cover the historic moment.
But then covid threw a spanner in the works and the project ground to a halt for a time.
MAVEC president Stephen O’Connor said members worked away on what they could and as restrictions began to ease they finished the walls, got the concrete done and worked to install the kitchen.
The shed will eventually house a meeting room, function/exhibition space and a mezzanine level which will feature an office and a library.
As part of the occasion the club were delighted to celebrate a number of new Life Members. See the Mail for the full story.
