Highlights the beautiful atmosphere of Chelsworth and why residents love it !- Query signage in the Brick Pavilion -This is for the public too - not just IGS

I have heard it is closely and extensively guarded by security guards - I have seen them nearby - but have not spoken to them myself- ED

Has anyone else been told by security to stop using south grounds / main oval recently. It was previously available to local residents before fences went up?

HI Jess / sorry for my late reply: Indigenous history is a bit guarded -as sites could be damaged if they were published. Call me 0427949951 for some tips.

Hi there, I was wondering if, beyond the scouts history, there is any information about the indigenous use/history of Wilson Reserve. Would love to know more.
