There will be a sausage sizzle and tea and coffee, and people living in Sydney might like to bring a slice or something similar to share around. As there are a limited number of chairs so people arriving by car might like to bring a folding chair. Help will be needed on the day collecting entry fees and giving out name tags.

Stella Vernon of the Campbelltown Historical Society will lead the group on a tour of St Peter’s Church, and will then continue on to the grave of John and Sarah Warby. Much angst has been expressed as to the condition of this grave.  Descendants of Alexander and Sarah MacDonald might like cross the road to the Presbyterian Cemetery.

Suggested accommodation for those coming from outside Sydney is the Campbelltown Colonial Motor Inn, 20 Queen Street, Campbelltown, NSW. Phone (02) 4625 2345.  The administration area of this motel was originally John Warby’s barn.  Sadly the building that was his stables is no longer a restaurant.
