Through our monthly meetings, with guest speakers, we bring together people interested in reminiscing the past.

Some chose to support our efforts through a subscription of our 16 page B5 Newsletter (Walkerville Times) SA and local history articles. 

Many of our council and local records have been digitalised in Word and Excel documents - eg, Council Assessments 1858-1930, Council Minutes 1855-1995, John Walker's Village and a 150 year history of St Andrew's School, both by Marjorie Scales, oral histories of local residents, traders and councillors; audio recordings of guest speakers including histories of local families; large digital pictorial collection of people and places old and recent;
