    MR. L. WHITE, Manestar Rd., Upper Beaconsfield, advised he was putting in a temporary bridge over the Cardinia Creek on November 16th and would like Manestar Rd. done by Christmas. Council was asked to pay for the decking.
    Supporting this request, Cr. Whiteside said this new road would provide the only cross road between Berwick and Fern Tree Gully and would be a good link. Eventually it would benefit a number of ratepayers.
    Cr. Kinsella expressed concern at the risk involved if an accident occurred on a privately built bridge to which council contributed. What was the background?
    The engineer: We advised that we would apply for a grant for a bridge. We did not get one. In the meantime Mr. White was informed he could build a temporary bridge if he liked. In reply to Cr. Kinsella he said that his estimate for a proper bridge was £1,000.
    Cr. Kinsella maintained that it was dangerous to allow a private individual to put up a private bridge on a public road.
    The engineer said that locked gates on the approaches had been suggested as a safeguard.
    It was decided that council make enquiries as to its liability and it was agreed on the motion of Crs. Whiteside and Harris that if council can assist Mr. White without incurring legal liability, it pay for the decking subject to it being approved by the engineer.16

  • 27 Feb 1952, Manestar Rd. Again
    F. Weiland, Upper Beaconsfield, complained that gate at top of Menestar Rd. was not very satisfactory, as his stock wandered over the creek into his neighbors. He also directed attention to bad erosion on the road. —Cr. Harris said his advice to the writer was to erect his own boundary fence. Mr. Weiland had asked permission to put the gate there—it was not council’s idea.
    Cr. Thewlis said he understood that the responsibility for the erection of the fence hinged on what had been done when the road was first put through.
    Cr. Harris: Council never at any time signed a contract that it would fence the road. This all happened a long time ago—away back in the late Cr. McBride’s time.
    The engineer said that part of the fence had been built. Council had no liability along the old Government Rd., but along the deviation Menestar had a definite letter in which council undertook to do some fencing.
    Cr. Harris: But it is his responsibility to build his boundary fence.
    Council decided to further investigate in the matter, and Mr. Weiland is to be advised to this effect.15
  • 23 Sep 1953, Bridge Advocated On Manester Rd.
    The Association strongly urges council to go into the possibility of erecting a bridge over Cardinia Creek on Manester Rd., giving access to Narre Warren East, Belgrave and other nearby centres, as well as greatly reducing travelling distance to the city and suburban areas. Two members of the Association were appointed to act as observers at a meeting convened by the Emerald & District Co-operative Society for the purpose of considering industrial development in the district.
    The erection of a well constructed notice board has filled a long-felt want, and the public are invited to make use of it.
    As the association is still in the embryo stage and needs funds to carry out even the smallest endeavours, it would be appreciated by the executive if those desirous of joining would do so now. Membership fee is only nominal at 2/6 a year. Any donations would also be much appreciated.16

Roy Everard Ross

M, #8603, b. Jul 1899, d. Nov 1970
Roy Everard ROSS
(1899-1970)
Note* Roy Everard Ross was born in July 1899 in Mansfield, Victoria and died in Melbourne in November 1970. Mr Ross was the sixth of eight children – Ada, James, Alfred, Olive, Sylvia, Roy, Fred and Hazel – all born to Hugh and Bessie Ross at the family property Brooklyn in Mansfield Victoria. He trained as a land surveyor and engineer and went on to become a very successful local government engineer, property owner, businessman and investor. He served as a Captain in the Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force in New Guinea following World War One.
In 1959, Mr Ross founded Bayview Quarries and became Chairman of Directors. After its takeover by Boral Ltd. in 1968, he formed Hillview Quarries Pty. Ltd. to operate an existing quarry at Dromana. Hillview Quarries continues to be owned and operated by the Trust and generates income for distribution by the Trust as charitable grants.
Mr Ross was a keen bushman, had an extensive knowledge of native plants and trees, and made a study of the habits of birds and their calls.
A History of the Trust
The R E Ross Trust was established in Victoria in 1970 by the will of Roy Ross. The will provides for five Trustees to manage the assets of the Trust and to distribute the Trust’s income.
When it came to making grants, the first Trustees decided to concentrate the Trust’s activities in three fields and to “give priority to particular projects rather than merely making donations to established agencies and institutions”. The three fields were: “Social welfare, with particular regard to assistance to the disadvantaged in breaking the circles in which they are caught and which result in poverty…”; “Nature conservation, with particular regard to the purchase of land for the protection and preservation of flora and fauna”; and “Education of foreign students, with particular regard to students from Melanesia.”
Over the years the Trust has continued a policy of combining smaller grants for many organisations with larger grants, often multi-year and in partnership with other donors, for a smaller number of particular projects. In the area of social welfare, the focus has always been on those who are most disadvantaged.
Since its establishment, the Trust has made many grants for the purchase of land and the support of other conservation projects throughout Victoria. The crowning achievement of the Trust in 2002 was to enable Trust for Nature to purchase Ned’s Corner Station in Northwest Victoria. Believed to be the largest Victorian property in private ownership and comprising 25,000 hectares including 14 kilometres of Murray River frontage, the purchase is of immense significance to conservation in Victoria. Since this time, other significant grants have been made in this impact area. For more information on these grants refer to the Preservation of Flora and Fauna impact area.
In the area of Education of foreign students, the Trustees undertook research before making their first grant in 1973, in partnership with a number of others, to Monash University. The R E Ross Trust Fellowship Program, previously known as the Trade Education Project, provided for specialised, short-term enhancement of trade skills and instruction techniques of adults from small South Pacific Island countries. In latter years the focus turned to the education and training of medical practitioners in the pacific islands. Due to the tightening of Australian law and regulations for foreign medical practitioners to practice in Australia, the program was revised to support the travel of Australian medical practitioners to the Pacific Islands to carry out the training in country. For the most recent information about the education of foreign students, refer to the Programs section.1

  • 6 May 1926, Ross—Hunter. A CHARMING evening wedding was quietly celebrated by the Rev. J. Jones at All Saints' Church, East St. Kilda, on Wednesday, April 28. The bride was Miss Mollie Hunter, the well-known younger daughter of Mr and Mrs Evan Hunter, of Warragul, and the bridegroom was Mr Roy Everard Ross, son of Mr and Mrs Hugh Ross, of Mansfield.
    A veritable cloud of tulle veil, caught to the head with orange blossoms which had been worn by her mother, fell over the bride's dainty frock of ivory georgette. The whole of the front was finely sewn with a tracery of crystal and silver beads, and a drape of the georgette fell from the right shoulder to the left hip, where it was caught with a large georgettoe rose centred with orange blossom. The back of the skirt was circular, and fell in silver defined scallops on to the border of fine Limerick lace. A sheaf of chrysanthemums was carried. Misses Dotty Fitts and Melbe Roark, the two pretty maids, wore lovely little frocks of pale cyclamen mauve taffeta. The short, tight bodices had V necks, and the very full skirts were bordered with several narrow frills, and above these large roses of silver tissue and mauve georgette of a deeper shade appeared at intervals. Their turbans were of mauve tulle and silver lame, and they carried shower posies of shaded mauve pansies. Dr. Conrad Ley supported the bridegroom as best man, with Mr Keith Johns as groomsman.
    After the ceremony Mr and Mrs Evan Hunter welcomed their guests at Scott's Hotel. When leaving, the bride covered her pretty evening frock with a flared coat of cream Zeena cloth, with border, collar and cuffs of white fox fur.4
