Club Stories

Background to the writing of Still on Track: 100 years of the Melbourne Women's Walking Club.

Over the past four years a group has been meeting and working to document the history of the club and to capture the stories of 26 of the longest standing members. These stories were collated into a volume called Sharing Stories. They also appeared in club newsletters over the course of 2020.
In the same time-frame, a writing team has recorded the history of the club in decades, drawing on the club's archive which is held in the State Library. The group also used documents held by the club's archivist. These include copies of Wayfaring - a volume produced annually in the early days of the club, but more recently it was published every ten years. A wonderful complete collection of the monthly newsletters was also used.
