About us ……
During each year, The Society gathers for a variety of social activities that enable members to meet each other on a personal level. Details of forthcoming events are posted in our Calendar while other information about activities in Glebe appears on our News and Events page and in The Society’s Bulletin. Please watch these sources for information on new activities.
Previous events have included:
* an inaugural trip on the Light Rail extension to Lilyfield combined with a walk through the Glebe rail tunnel, followed by lunch at the Kauri pub near Wentworth Park;
* a ferry trip which showed Glebe from its maritime perspective;
* a picnic at Bicentennial Park;
* our 30th birthday Twilight Drinks at Lyndhurst; and
* progressive dinners at members’ houses.

New Members’ Functions
From time to time we have informal get-togethers which encourage new members to meet with members who have been involved with the Society for a longer period of time. These functions are advertised in our Bulletin and on the web site.
Our archives were previously languishing in the dank, lightless basement of the Glebe Town Hall, much to the distress of our ‘resident archivist’.
Fortunately Forest Lodge Public School came to the rescue of The Glebe Society and has provided us with a much more ‘archive friendly’ storage space until a permanent home can be found for our records in the future. A ‘working bee’ was held and the archives were successfully transferred to their new home.
The Society is most grateful for the help provided by members in affecting this transfer and especially grateful to the Forest Lodge Public School.
