Summary
  • *Image Ref: State Library of South Australia PRG 280/​1/​15/​217.The Hundred of Yaranyacka was proclaimed 20 June 1872. The school opened in 1881 and became ‘Lipson’ in 1909. Thomas Lipson entered the Royal Navy and in 1836 came to South Australia as Naval Officer for the colony and soon after was appointed Collector of Customs and Harbour Master at Port Adelaide.His name is remembered in the name of Lipson, north of Tumby Bay: surveyed in 1872 and offered for sale on 17 April 1873. [Ref: Manning’s Place Names of South Australia]YARANYACKA, Saturday July 2A meeting of subscribers was held at the Lipson Hotel on Saturday, July 2, for the purpose of appointing Trustees and arranging for the calling for tenders for the erection of an Institute Hall in the Lipson township, near to the Church of England. The subscriptions so far collected amount to £53 10s. The block of land will be obtained from the Government. The building is to be 40 ft long, 20 ft wide in the clear, and 12 ft from floor to ceiling. The trustees appointed by the meeting were Messrs E D Swaffer, C Dutton, and J Barrand. [Ref: Adelaide Observer 16-7-1898]YARANYACKA, Monday November 10The opening of the new Institute Hall at Lipson took place today. The weather was all that could be desired, and the attendance was large, many having come from Port Lincoln to take part. Mrs Swaffer performed the opening ceremony. A cricket match took place on the Lipson Oval between the Lipson Club and the Port Lincoln club, the latter winning by. A repast was provided by Mesdames Dutton and O'Connor in the new hall. Afternoon tea was provided by several ladies of Lipson and Tumby, and upwards of 200 sat down. In the evening a concert was held. Mr E D Swaffer occupied the chair. The hall was crowded, many having to stand. The hall having been cleared by the committee, dancing was kept up till early morning. Refreshments were provided by the Tumby ladies. The takings were about £20. [Ref: South Australian Register 18-11-1898]In connection with the opening of the Lipson Institute some of the ladies of Yaranyacka and Tumby provided a tea in the new building, and nearly 200 people were present. In the evening, a concert took place, and it was associated with the formal opening of the new building by Mrs Swaffer. The piano was lent for the occasion by Miss Barrand. The building was crowded, and a dance followed. The erection of this building is the result of a laudable effort on the part of some of the young ladies of the district, notably Miss McLeod and Miss Jessie Potter. A cricket match was played in connection with the opening of the Lipson Institute, between the Port Lincoln and Lipson cricket clubs. The scores were — Port Lincoln 84, and Lipson 71. Messrs. S. Valentine and J. Giffen made 22 runs each for the winning team, while Messrs. A. Wishart and E. Swaffer made 22 and 17 respectively for Lipson team. Mrs. Dutton generously provided lunch for both teams. [Ref: Chronicle 26-11-1898]LIPSON SHOW October 14 – NEW HALLThe Annual Show of the Great Flinders Agricultural and Horticultural Society was held yesterday. About 1,000 persons passed through the gates. The Institute Hall was sufficiently near to completion to be used for the exhibits and concert.It is a fine roomy building and a great improvement on the old one. Tumby Bay Brass Band provided music.In the evening a successful concert was held in the new hall, which had been temporarily fitted with gas for the occasion. [Ref: Advertiser 18-10-1910]On Wednesday evening the Premier (Hon J Verran) joined the SS ‘Governor Musgrave’, with the president of the Marine Board on board, and after a somewhat rough passage across the gulf arrived at Tumby Bay early on Thursday morning.LIPSON INSTITUTEThe party were afterwards driven to Lipson, a distance of about seven miles, where the Premier opened the new institute. It is a splendid, up-to-date structure, and is an excellent tribute to the goaheadness of the people of the district.Mr E J Barrand introduced the Premier to the people, and after Mr Verran, in a happy speech, had declared the new hall open, Messrs Potter and Wishart moved and extended a hearty vote of thanks to the Premier, who had put up with a lot of inconvenience—including sea-sickness—to be with them.The Premier and the president of the Marine Board rejoined the ‘Governor Musgrave’, and came back to Wallaroo on Thursday night, and returned by train Friday morning. [Ref: Daily Herald 18-2-1911]OPENED BY THE PREMIERLipson, February 17For many months preparations have been made for the opening of the new Institute Hall. The Premier (Hon John Verran) was invited to perform the ceremony, and on Thursday morning M. Verran, with two Misses Verran, the President of the Marine Board (Mr Searcy), Captain Weir, and the Premier's secretary arrived by the ‘Governor Musgrave’ at Tumby Bay. They were met by the chairman and members of the district council and were conveyed to Lipson. There was a large attendance in spite of the harvest. Mr E J Barrand introduced the Premier and welcomed him to the district. The Premier, in a few well-chosen remarks, declared the hall open. He urged the young people of the township to make their new institute stand for morality and higher intellectual pursuits. The Tumby Brass Band rendered excellent selections.For years the necessity for a larger hall has been keenly felt, especially at show time. The new hall is the largest on Eyre Peninsula, and no efforts have been spared to make it up-to-date. The decorative Wunderlich ceiling calls for special mention. The hall is lit throughout by acetylene gas, and has every convenience for companies. The total cost was about £500. Of this £100 was raised last year, and the committee are to hold an annual fair till the hall is clear of debt. The second floral fair was opened by the Premier, and was the most successful yet held on this peninsula. The day's takings amounted to £115. [Ref: Advertiser 21-2-1911]
