Heathcote McIvor Historical Society has benefited from the watchfulness of staff at Heathcote landfill.

A suitcase recently rescued contained a wealth of historic photos and other documents.

Curator Liz Murfitt said it was an important find as there was very little primary material relating to Heathcote’s history.

‘‘It’s a shame when things like this go missing, and once they’re gone, they’re gone forever,’’ she said.

She urged anyone with documents, letters or other items relating to family and town history to consider donating them to the historical society.

Items can be given directly to the historical society or left at the Heathcote council offices during office hours.

For information, contact Ms Murfitt on 54333776.
