OLD GOVERNMENT HOUSE NEEDS VOLUNTEERS
Did you know?
In the middle of our district we have an historic treasure - namely Old Government House - in Belair National Park?
Are you among the many local people who have visited over the years? Due to a shortage of volunteers, Friends of OGH now open once a month only, instead of weekly, and public holidays. Adults - gold coin donation. Children free.
Yes, volunteers are needed - why not become one? The tasks involved are neither onerous or arduous and current volunteers are very helpful.
