To celebrate the achievements of this great pioneer, the Toowoomba Branch of the National Trust
of Australia, Queensland, is holding a free Open Day from 10:00 a.m.to 4:00 p.m. at the Royal Bull’s Head Inn in Drayton. A church service will be conducted at 11:00 a.m. By “Glennie” who will arrive at the Inn in a sulky. The parishioners from St Matthews, St Mark’s, St Luke’s and St John’s churches will walk the final few hundred metres to the Inn, reminiscent of how people would have travelled to church in 1848.
At the end of the service the donation of the white picket fence that once stood at St Matthew’s church, will be recognised by the unveiling of a plaque. Following this everyone is invited to enjoy their BYO picnic lunch in the grounds – refreshments will be on sale.
A talk on the Rev. Benjamin Glennie will take place, as will entertainment by the children from the Drayton State School. The girls from the Glennie School will be acting as guides for the day and their choir will boost the singing of the hymns during the church service.
Everyone is welcome to come to enjoy the celebrations.
