Cheryl Timbury (Andrew Goodwin and Lydia Munro)
Website Manager and Site Author
an early member of the Fellowship since inception in 1984 and has held the position of Secretary/Administration Officer for over 20 years. Has also been actively involved in functions, dress-ups, re-enactments and gives her support freely to promoting the ideals of the Fellowship.
In the 1990’s the State Library of Victoria (Vic-net) provided not-for-profit groups a free Internet service where they could set up a small website for their group. This was the first introduction of the Victorian Fellowship to the world-wide web. When Vic-net stopped providing that service, we then built our first stand-alone website, before moving onto this current one.
Cheryl, on a voluntary basis, researches and reads articles about First Fleeters, seeks out images and then writes the articles. She formats the pages herself with the occasional, small amount of support from her web developer. Articles have also been sourced for the site from the Fellowship’s newsletter Folio that has been in print since 1985. Stories written by members, and submitted to the Folio editors, can now be read more widely. Members also gave information and photographs for the special project that is still running on Honouring WW1, being the Fellowship’s contribution to the WW1 centenary.
The First Fleet Fellowship Victoria Inc web-site is our way of promoting the story of the First Fleet and the people who arrived with Captain Arthur Phillip to the wider world.
