Bowral

Lunch is planned in Bowral on Monday October 5th.

Bowral Public School is the venue to be from ~16:30 to hear the Campanologists across the road at the Uniting Church, and then we move indoors to the School Hall for the Commemorative Ceremony followed by some entertainment by local choir The Glams.  Food is also a part of the equation.

We then return to the  Mittagong campsite.

Original March:  What happened

They marched in misty and bracingly cold weather from Moss Vale to Bowral, one of the main tourist spots in New South Wales and were escorted from Chisholm’s Hill into town by the Mayor, the band and a cavalcade of young ladies ‘sitting their horses well’. They then marched on to Mittagong where they would spend the night.
