Pringle Cottage joins in the Jumpers and Jazz fun
ONE of the oldest pieces of Warwick’s history has joined one of the town’s newest traditions.
Pringle Cottage, a heritage listed museum, has gone all out to join in the Jumpers and Jazz fun and volunteer Ev Eastwell said it had been a lot of fun.
“We usually open every year but this year we decided to do something a little different,” she said.
“We’re calling it Heritage and Jumpers and Jazz.
“We’ve done a couple of trees up with the theme, yarn bombed a few of the old house posts and we’ve done up a few old dolls in Jumpers and Jazz outfits.”
Mrs Eastwell said the idea was to bring the Jumpers and Jazz vibe to Pringle Cottage.
“It’s a great festival for Warwick and all the surrounding areas, everybody gets into it,” she said.
“It’s brings a lot of people to the region, which is great and it’s certainly something quirky and different that gets people talking.
“We hope it continues for many years.”
Mrs Eastwell said they were urging people visiting the town to drop by at Pringle Cottage for a look.
“Come and visit and take a step back into the past,” she said.
“The cottage is set up as life would have been.
“We’ve also set up a craft and variety store and are putting on morning and afternoon tea as well.
“Come and try our home-made biscuits and slice, tea and coffee for a small fee of course.”
Mrs Eastwell said visitors to the cottage can also expect to see years worth of classic local memorabilia.
“There’s an old photography slide show and another comprehensive photography display called Warwick – Visions of the Past,” she said.
“As well we have a 1923 Dodge fire engine which is being lovingly restored and is going to be a part of the Grand Vintage Auto Display in Palmerin St tomorrow.
“Come and have look around.”
