Happy New Year!

 

 

Happy New Year to all our friends, followers, supporters, visitors and guests!

Times and fashions may have changed since this New Year postcard, showing Queen Street and the Post Office Clock in Brisbane, was sent out to friends in circa 1908, but the sentiment remains the same! We hope you all have a bright year ahead and can’t wait to welcome you to our own Redlands heritage gem, Historic Ormiston House, in 2019!

Christmas Wishes from Historic Ormiston House

default

Whatever your plans are for this Christmas period, we hope you have as much fun as these children did, on the Cleveland Pier, with Ormiston in the distance, c. 1908!

The volunteer team at Historic Ormiston House would like to wish all our supporters, friends, followers, visitors and guests a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Thank you for all your support throughout 2018 – without that support, we could not continue to share the peacefulness and heritage of this beautiful house and property with the community.

We would like to wish you all well for 2019, and look forward to welcoming you again when we re-open on Sunday 27 January, at 12 noon!

Thank You Cleveland Office Supplies!

 

At Historic Ormiston House we recently updated our volunteer guide books and training manuals, which involved lots of research, printing, book filling and effort from our amazing volunteers!

Our wonderful volunteers helped us fill all the folders with the plastic sleeves and printed pages, and enjoyed a morning tea to launch the new edition of the book. Lots of work was involved, but our volunteers enjoyed the time together.

This project would not have been possible without the sponsorship of Cleveland Office Supplies, a local, family owned business. Our printing job was completed so well and professionally by the friendly staff, who really made us feel at home when we popped into the shop. It’s absolutely wonderful to have such a professional and well-equipped business like this right here in the Redlands! Thank you to the wonderful COS team for supporting this local heritage gem!

So if you need office supplies, stationary, equipment, furniture or printing, head on down to Cleveland Office Supplies and support this local, family owned, Redlands business!
