Kew Cemetery

Ray Tonkin Award

Our congratulations go to Friends of Boroondara (Kew) Cemetery member Elaine Race who has been awarded the Ray Tonkin award by the Heritage Council of Victoria. Elaine spent more than three years mapping the entire Kew cemetery, carefully checking records and spending months walking around every inch of the cemetery. Heritage Council Chair Stuart MacIntyre presented the Award to Elaine in the rose garden at the cemetery on a sunny day in early October 2019.
