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.
What a year this has been, with lots of events cancelled again, and unfortunately (and we know you won’t be surprised) the Committee has decided to cancel the rest of Linnwood’s events for 2021. There is still so much uncertainty at the moment, particularly with the Cumberland LGA having been a ‘hotspot’ for quite a while, that we don’t think we can hold large gatherings at the house this year.
With the current suggestion that anyone attending a large indoor event may need to show proof of being double-vaccinated, it would be very hard to check this at the front door and we feel that it could be quite stressful for our volunteers on the welcome table, and also for some of our visitors.
We are going to be very optimistic about 2022 though, so please keep checking our website for dates of Open Days etc.
We will be taking bookings for Group Tours for 2022, so if you have a group of friends (minimum 15 people), or belong to a community group who would like to visit in 2022, please contact us. We look forward to seeing you back at Linnwood in 2022.
We do have a Covid Plan in place, a QR code for entry and for those who cannot use the QR code, there will be a sign-in sheet available.
We ARE also taking bookings for Group Tours of Linnwood.
Linnwood has a new look!
