Collectors club helps museum

COFFS Harbour’s keenest collectors are helping to support a museum to celebrate the region’s agricultural history.

The Coffs Harbour Collectors Club, which donates all the profits from its popular yearly fair to local organisations involved with collecting or restoring, this year donated $500 towards a permanent home for the Orara Valley Farm Machinery Museum, which has been granted a block of council land near Upper Orara Hall as a base.

Collectors’ club member Edith Fursman is pictured with OVFMM president Doug Hoschke admiring one of the Museum’s prized exhibits, a two-tonne 1940s KL Bulldog tractor.

Doug Hoschke explains it ‘takes half an hour to start because you have to light a fire under the front of it.’
