From 10am, there will be scones freshly cooked, bottomless tea and coffee, stalls with plants, quality knitting and handcrafts and continuous music from the Maldon based Platform Souls. Other musicians are welcome to bring their instruments and join in. Raffles will be drawn at the end of the morning.

After such a long dry summer, the gardens are not looking too bad. All are welcome to come, friends and neighbours, those looking to support cancer research and those who wish to see the outside of this heritage-listed 1840s homestead or just to have a social morning in a pleasant garden setting with great views towards Cairn Curran.

Cancer in its many forms never ceases. Every family can recall numerous experiences with cancer, many with fatal endings, but as a result of your donations which help to fund critical research, many more people are surviving to live normal lives. All funds raised at Plaistow are sent directly to the Cancer Council.

If anyone would like to help the Skilbeck family during the morning, your help would be appreciated. If you wish to donate online

Entry is by donation from 10am until midday.

Parking near the house is limited, so parking on the drive is encouraged, leaving space for the ‘not-so-fit’ near the house.

Plaistow is located at 324 Rodborough Road Joyces Creek, 7 kilometres west of Newstead; follow the signs and flags from the Pyrenees Highway or from the Black Duck at Campbelltown.
