Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

History of the District and Hazelwood [South] Hall Names


Hazelwood Girl Guides began in 1957. Called Hazelwood as the District drew members from the Hazelwood schools. The Hazelwood Unit moved into the Hazelwood [South] Hall in 1959 and has been there ever since.

Much later in years the Churchill Units began.
There has been suggestions that as most members come from Churchill the Hazelwood District should have become the Churchill District for simplicity. What was decided by both the leaders at the time was that the District be a combined name thus reflecting the demographics of where the membership may be drawn from and the now intemingled history.
The Hazelwood name has been retained as the first name simply in recognition that the Hazelwood units were the first here.
The Hall still is known as the Hazelwood [South] Hall, even though the Latrobe City Council keep changing the voting boundrys, for the same reason.
These motioned were formally passed in the District Leaders Meeting and recorded in the minutes.
