Dear ,

Glenthorne Farm has some of the earliest heritage buildings in South Australia.  In the past 15 years the state of these Structures have deteriorated drastically, and the Friends of Glenthorne are not only very concerned about their preservation, but also about the current heritage legislation.

The South Australian State Government needs to be reminded that the people of South Australia value their heritage and, for this reason, we are forwarding to you an email we received from The National Trust of SA.

This meeting has been organised by the Adelaide City Council to protest agains the recent Local Government Discussion Paper: Renewing Our Planning System, Placing Local Heritage on Renewed Foundations.

We do hope you are able to attend this show of support next Monday 26th September at 6pm.

Friends of Glenthorne.

A Plea to Every Individual and Organisation
Dedicated to History and Heritage


You may have seen the notice of the Adelaide Town Hall public meeting on Local Heritage next Monday, 26th September at 6 pm. This may be your last real chance to tell the Minister for Planning what you think and what you want.

To get our voices heard we must fill the Town Hall. We need you and all the members of your organisation to attend. People who travel in carloads from regional centres will have a big impact just by being there.

Please let our National Trust office know how many people hope to come by emailing us at  Bring a placard or banner with your organisation’s name on it.

Bring your friends, you children, cousins, partners, lovers, grandparents: EVERYONE. Believe me, you will make a difference. See you there,

Norman Etherington, President, National Trust of South Australia
