Modern Shops

Today Williamstown is a thriving centre of a populous, wealthy countryside. Its modern shops cater for a large section of the countryside and its fairs are noted for the quality of stock on offer and the prices obtained. Yet only 25 years ago what is now The Square was an unsightly pond in which ducks and geese disported themselves. That has all gone; progress has come to the town, and more progress is to be made because last year the Town Improvements Committee was formed and they have big plans for making Williamstown a still better place. Their plans include the provision of amenities that will benefit the farming community who leave their money in the town, the buyers who come to town to buy what the farmers have to sell; amenities like loading banks and weighbridges are envisaged.
