Event offers glimpse of yesteryear

TAKE a step back into the past this weekend at the Warwick and District Historical Society open day.

Held at Pringle Cottage in Dragon St the last display of the Selectors exhibition will be open from 10.30am-3pm.

There will be plenty for everyone to see including many demonstrations like whip making, embroidery, washing and even peg doll making for the kids.

Vice president of the Warwick and District Historical association Elva Sinclair said it will be a great family day out.

"There will be so much here for young and old," she said.

"We'll have Lions doing a sausage sizzle and stalls selling plants and bric-a-brac.

"We even have two old working telephones and the kids can have a go  

at using them."

Mrs Sinclair said it's important for the community to support the open day.

"Without their support we wouldn't be here," she said.

"It's all owned by the historical society and it costs a lot of money to keep it running.

"We're always looking for volunteers to help out with different aspects, like gardening around the grounds."

The society holds a working bee each Thursday.

"It's a great way to meet people and share a passion for something you love," Mrs Sinclair said.
