About the Diamond Valley Branch

The RVAHJ was founded in 1910. The DV Branch followed in circa 1960, arguably making us one of the “oldest” continuously running branches in Victoria.

All JsP and BJs are welcome to join us. The exchange of news and views at our quarterly meetings are invaluable with a wealth of experience freely shared among our members.

Document Signing Stations

If you would like to volunteer at one of our signing stations, please contact the co-ordinator whose mobile number is shown. Four hours once a month can make a huge difference to the smooth running of one. They all provide an invaluable service to the public. In most cases, the hours shown are the hours that need to be “worked”. Volunteering at these locations can be most rewarding as the variety of requests made of us is seemingly never-ending!

Covid-19 has had such a ripple effect around the world. All our Document Signing Stations (DSSs) were closed each time Melbourne went into lockdown, and for the most part, in the times between. A “left-over” effect, now that DSSs have re-opened, is that we are required to have people who attend them record their name and phone number for contact tracing purposes if the need arises. Our functions have not otherwise altered.
