It was a mass movement when the Wood family of ten migrated from Calverton, Nottinghamshire to Australia nearly four years ago. Mr Wood, who was a farmer and horse trainer in Calverton, now leases a 183 acre farming property at Gladysdale, a small country town nestling in the picturesque Dandenong Ranges, 40 miles from Melbourne. The Woods have made many friends in Gladysdale - in turn, the Woods have started a youth Club for the teenagers of the district. Margaret, the eldest daughter, a lovely brunette of 20, was chosen as Belle of Belles in a beauty contest covering the vast Yarra Valley. Margaret was also one of the ten finalists in the Victorian Miss New Australia Quest conducted by the Sun Newspaper. The Wood family on one of their boundary fences
