‘If a town’s worth living in, it’s worth working for’: A small town love story

Bill Welsh served in the navy in World War II, and played briefly for Collingwood in 1950, but desperately wanted to return home to Yinnar. There he met Jean at a dance one Saturday night, and the rest is history visible all over town. Jordyn Beazley continues our series on life in a Victorian country town.
