Situated just one hour north of Melbourne, a stones throw from Hanging Rock, The Newham Mechanics Institute has much to offer both the local residents and visitors to the Macedon Ranges.
The Newham Mechanics Institute is run by an enthusiastic group of locals who strive to offer something different, something unavailable in the local area for all to enjoy. Whether it be highly regarded comedy shows, musical performances from local and national artists or thought provoking lectures, this community hall offers something for everyone.
Vale Nick Massie
It is with deep sadness that Newham Mechancis Insitute shares the news of the passing of our long standing committee member Nick Massie who sadly passed away at home last week.
Nick had been a member of our committee for numerouse years and acted in many roles, most recently as Treasurer and Booking Officer.
He will be greatly missed, not just by the Mechanics Institute, but by the Newham Community as a whole, where Nick was an integral part of a number of community organisations including Landcare and the Newham Boars.
A kind and loving man, who was generous with his time and knowledge for all who asked, and faced his health challenge with great strength and courage.
He will be profoundly missed.
Peace after suffering.
