Wagon Wheels - Do you have, or know someone who has, some old Pram or Golf Buggy type Wheels (9"-12" or 200mm - 300mm) or similar, that you could donate? The Friends of Glenthorne need to transport equipment from our cars/trailers to our work-sites, and we will make mini-waggons.  Large wheels are necessary for the rough terrain.

If you can help with this, then please reply to this email, and we can get in contact with you to collect.

Glenthorne History Book

Glenthorne, a Defining History & Indefinite Politics

Did you know that some very early buildings, in SA's history, exist at Glenthorne. There are plans afoot to have these buildings restored to their former glory (or humble use!) These plans are part of our vision for Glenthorne,

You can learn about the history of these buildings (and others that no longer exist) in our book, “Glenthorne, a Defining History & Indefinite Politics” written by Dr. Pam Smith, Dr. Keryn Walsh, and Mr. Alan Burns. More information on getting your own copy on the Friends of Glenthorne web site here. Or you may like to telephone Pam on 0428 315 266 on how to get one.

At just $20 (plus $10 postage and handling), it makes a great gift and is a great read. It is the most detailed written history of the Glenthorne property and we are very proud of it. If you come to our Enjoyment Day to pay for and pick up your copy, you can save the $10 postage.

Payment can be by way of cheque (posted in the mail) or electronic or cash deposit into the Friends bank account. Note that order forms must also be forwarded with payment to ensure your copy is accurately posted to you.
