The Friends of Linnwood
The Friends of Linnwood Inc formed in 2002 after a community led campaign was successful in saving the Linnwood Estate from being sold and redeveloped. The Friends hold regular Open Days to raise money for continued restoration and conservation work on the house. The Friends are all volunteers, working together to promote Linnwood throughout the local and wider community.
OPEN DAY - SUNDAY 10TH JULY 2022
Due to the amount of rain which has fallen in the past week, we don't believe the grounds will be in any condition to be able to support the number of cars booked to attend. We have therefore made the difficult decision to close the area to the car clubs.
We will still open the house on the day, but cannot risk damaging the lawn, or the cars, under the current circumstances.
This is very disappointing for all concerned. Covid and the weather have not been kind to any of us over the past 2 years and we just hope that things will improve in the future.
Current advice from the NSW Health Department is that masks are no longer necessary in some indoor settings, however if visitors feel more comfortable wearing a mask, please do so.
We continue to be optimistic about holding events at Linnwood during 2022, and are going ahead with booking exhibitors for our Open Days and guest speakers for our Public Meetings this year.
We are also taking bookings for Group Tours, so if you have a group of friends (minimum 15 people), or belong to a community group (Probus, Historical Society, Church Group etc.) who would like to visit in 2022, please contact us.
Cost is $12 pp and includes Devonshire Tea, presentation on the history of Linnwood and tour through the house.
We hope to see you at Linnwood in the near future.
Linnwood has a new look!
