Seymour featured on television
Seymour aired to a national audience during her appearance on the Channel 9 travel show Postcards recently.
Presenter and former tennis player Sam Groth had lunch at the Brewers Table, strolled the Vietnam Veterans Memorial March and Australian Light Horse Memorial Park, and toured the Seymour Railway Heritage Center.
Brewers Table owner Carmen Fifield said she and her team jumped at the chance to appear on the TV show.
“It was a bit of a surreal experience as we were always open and serving customers,” she said.
“It was quite intimidating with all the lights and microphones and answering questions while doing our normal job.
“But we’ve really enjoyed showing off the great work we’re trying to do and what we’re trying to provide Seymour with.
“There was a lot of positive feedback from people who came to tell us that they saw us on TV and a lot of social media posts.
“Our staff have done an incredible job navigating the ongoing COVID situation, so it was nice to have something positive to get involved in.”
Seymour Railway Heritage Center President John Crofts said he was happy to hear Postcards was shot at Seymour.
“We shot about three hours and everything went really well. It took some effort to get it right, but it was a good experience, ”he said.
“We’re excited to be promoting the region and what we do, and we look forward to getting the trains running when restrictions ease.”
“We are in the process of expanding to offer premium multi-day heritage rail travel. This will be in addition to the popular return tours we already do.
“We recently took a six day trip and people loved it. We want to do more as it all opens up. “
Mr Crofts said the Seymour Railway Heritage Center is always looking for more volunteers.
“We have a range of roles available for all different skill sets, so you don’t need to know railways,” he said.
“There are great opportunities out there and I encourage anyone interested to visit srhc.org.au or the Seymour Railway Heritage Center Facebook page.”
