• TIME AND TIDE: Kerrie Knowlman and Ray Pyke take time to reflect at the Belmore Park monument which carries their forebears’ names. Enoch Ashley, former Goulburn city mayor, unveiled the memorial to another mayor John Knowlman on May 14 1911. Kerrie and Ray’s reunion this week was 101 years to the day since John Knowlman died.

JOHN Knowlman regarded Belmore Park as something of a child to him. As mayor he had taken it under his wing and nurtured Goulburn’s showpiece.
