Garrison Church, 66 Lower Fort Street, Miller's Point

Remembrance Day, 2019

Since the recent dissolution of the 2/15th Field Regiment Association, members have met at the Garrison Church, 66 Lower Fort St, Miller’s Point, for the 9.30 Service to commemorate Remembrance Day. It takes place on the nearest Sunday to 11/11 and this year it will be Sun. 10th.

The Garrison (formal name The Holy Trinity Church) is a heritage-listed beautiful church built in 1840 as Australia’s first military church and features Regimental plaques throughout the church including those of 2/15th and 2/30th. It is a fitting place to honour our Vets. Street parking is available (about $3 per hour).

After the Service, the local parishioners invite us to join them in morning tea on the front lawn. They are very welcoming and we usually chat with them until 11.45a.m. We then move over to No. 81 to the Hero of Waterloo Hotel for a very informal lunch. There is a dining area and the Hotel provides one long table to accommodate us .The menu is varied and prices range from $18 00 to $34.50. At the end of the meal a basket is passed around and each person puts in the cost of their choice. (Cash would assist). Drinks are paid for individually.

Two week’s notice of intention to attend would be appreciated. Please ring Ray Stanborough on 9365 4543.
