Time tables will be published about a week prior to each Dence Park day, please keep an eye out so that you know what is happening each month.

There is a break in the middle of the day’s schedule for a Pot Luck lunch. This would be a great time for anyone who would like to try out some of their period cooking on a receptive audience to bring out some of their creations. Alternatively just bring along something to share, it does not have to be a period dish. Remember to bring plates, cutlery, and a cup or mug if you wish to make a hot drink.

Bring a project you are working on, start a new project or come and learn something new, or even just bring a game to share and play.

This is a child–friendly event with boffer and games. All persons under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Trains: there are regular trains to Epping Station. Epping Station is 1.1 km from Dence Park, so the walk from the Station will take about 10-15 minutes.

If you get off at the Epping Road near Crandon bus stop just two stops or if you miss that one the next stop will get you to within 80 meters of the Centre.

Fighter Practice, Parramatta Park, Sundays 2pm

Hi everybody,

A few of us who live in western Sydney and struggle to make it to the regular Rowany practice because of work/family commitments have decided to have a fighter practice every couple of weekends. We will try to ensure that it does not clash with the Rowany war practices.

The first practice will be held at Parramatta Park on Sunday 30 August from 2pm.

Thanks, Chuck (Sir Jock Mactavish)

To check if this practice is on, please check the Baronial Calendar, or contact Chuck.
