Throsby Park Open Day success
Despite the bitterly cold wind, people were keen to stay on, with many taking over an hour to tour the house.
Sydney Living Museums' Richard Taylor, Sarah Jane Rennie, Michael Larkin and former staffer Dave Wilson put together a great day, assisted by SLM volunteers, Throsby Park Supporters and Moss Vale locals Patsy Bingham, Paul Sabatier and Kylie Gillespie.
It was nice to see Del Throsby’s old jumping arena back in use for the event by the Moss Vale Pony Club.
For many, the highlight of the afternoon was the Southern Highlands Pipes and Drums skirling their way up the driveway.
There was also much genuine interest in the future management of Throsby Park, with people very keen to see it lived in and well cared for.
