Looking Back… 100 years ago – Gawler

From The Australian Christian Commonwealth – 5 April 1918…

A special news article honouring the retiring choir leader at Tod Street Methodist Church (now Gawler Uniting Church).

Mr Phillip Cheek had been the conductor of the church choir for 55 years (and a member of the choir for 5 years before that as well). He was honoured and thanked for his long service to music in the church.
The article also speaks of other very long term members of the choir and those involved in music at the church, as well as the legacy they leave.
