* Report on Trip to Bathurst and surrounds.  19th – 22nd October 2022

A wonderful three days away was had by 35 Probians last Wednesday to Friday. Wednesday afternoon was our time to experience the lives of early Australian settlers at the magnificent Abercrombie House.  This is a work in progress as the owners are restoring the house to its former glory.  The grounds were extensive and still have the chapel and workers builders standing.  The owners provided us with a delicious Devonshire Tea in the ballroom (8’6” high, gold leaf pressed tin ceiling) after our tour.  Mayfield Gardens near Oberon was our destination for Thursday.  The weather was kind to us with only a few spots falling as we explored these magnificent gardens.  Sadly the bus is not running at the moment due to Covid so some of our group were left enjoying a chat and cuppa in the café.  After a tasty lunch some departed to visit Oberon while others set forth again to visit the maze.  Such fun getting lost while we straddled puddles on the pathways.  We were able to find our way out with only a little help from outside the maze.  We were lucky enough to strike two venues which provided us with the added entertainment of Trivia on both nights.  A lot of laughs and brainstrain was had by all.  On Friday the rain was threatening so some decided to return to Sydney, while an intrepid few drove out to Rockley.  A small town ½ hour from Bathurst.  Matt Moran, a well-known chef, has decided to restore the pub and build it into a five-star pub restaurant.  We all agreed the service and food was delicious and we would go again if the opportunity arose.  It was a lovely drive there with beautiful scenery all around this little valley.  All together I believe we had a fun, friendly and foody few days away.  Thank you everyone for making it so easy. 

 

* Report for Picnic at Heritage Park 13th September 2022

30 Probians, and a few grand children, attended the picnic in fine weather.

For many of the attendees it was their first visit to Heritage Park and all were impressed with the expanse of the park and the facilities.

All of us enjoyed a very relaxed day in great company with much happy conversations between friends.
