The bells of St George’s Anglican Church
Gawler, pealed out merrily on Monday
morning, January 8 – which puzzled a
number of local people.
The reason was a visit by a large group
from interstate, all members of the
Royal School of Church Music, who
made St George’s their ﬁrst stopping
place on a bus tour of the Barossa
But the main reason for their visit to
the church was to play and listen to
the “Bristol” organ which has gained a
reputaton for excellence throughout
through the ﬁles of The Bunyip

DRAMA AT SEA...A routne ﬁshing expediton in the
Southern Ocean has turned into a lifesaving rescue operaton
on the high seas for Gawler doctor John Smith.
John was aboard a customs and ﬁsheries patrol vessel in the
Southern Ocean just before Christmas when a distress call
was received from a ﬁshing ship in internatonal waters.
John and the crew found themselves on a mercy mission to
save the life of a Portuguese sailor who had fallen critcally ill
aboard the Spanish ﬁshing boat Arnela.
Teachers, school children, and others in this state, will be

GAWLER Quilting Circle members
are participating in a national project
that will see thousands of hand-made
poppies displayed in Melbourne's
Federation Square on Anzac Day.
5000 Poppies is a project aiming to bring
crafters across Australia together in a com-
munity tribute to all Australian servicemen
As part of the project, crafters are asked to
crochet, knit or sew red poppies, which will
then be sent to Melbourne to form a mas-
sive hand-made poppy field.
Gawler Quilting Circle secretary Anne
Webb said the club's members had already
commenced work on the project and were
seeking help from all knitters in the com-
"We think we've got well over 100 pop-
pies at the moment," Mrs Webb said.
"They are looking really good.
"We hope to have 500 poppies to send to
Melbourne by the end of February."
Mrs Webb said anyone in the local area
wishing to contribute can collect knitting
patterns and return completed poppies to
Kornacraft in Gawler.
A 'poppy-knitting day' will also be held at
the shop on February 7 and members of the
Gawler Quilting Circle will be available to
help those who have no experience in knit-
ting, crocheting and sewing.
Mrs Webb said there would be a window
display at Kornacraft in February, exhibit-
ing all the poppies created by the commu-
nity before being sent to Melbourne.
"From there the display will travel to
Perth, where it will be on display for
Remembrance Day in November and then
tour the country until 2018," she said.
