Meet Explore Seymour

In March 2017 local community group The Seymour We Want approached James  Meredith Hall and Bruce Johnstone to take over and redesign an outdated website which they had previously run as apart of a community initiative to establish Seymour on the internet ( James is passionate Seymour resident and his family has lived in Seymour and local area since 1850’s, James is also a committee member of the Seymour and District Historical Society and has been involved in many community projects in Seymour over the years, such as establishment of the Spirit of Progress park and the 150th anniversary mural. Bruce Johnstone moved to Seymour in 2016 from Western Australia but has always had a love for Victoria. Bruce could see that Seymour was missing an online presence through an official website and social media and with his career and background in I.T. and web design could put his skills to work for Seymour. James and Bruce work together as a team to maintain the website, produce content for social media and photograph Seymour and the region.


On November 10 2017 The Mayor Cr. Rhonda Sanderson, declared the Website officially launched and congratulated all concerned.
