February News

This is crazy. I knew I wasn’t having a good time with my last surgery but didn’t know it had been so long since I have posted here. I am so sorry. I wish that you, the readers, would let me know if I am wasting time or not.
For those who are reading this. I had spinal surgery on my L2 level. It has been painful and I am just not healing as well as I would like. Please if you want to see more from Campbelltown Lapidary you can see us on our Facebook page here:

So I really haven’t left you high and dry, there is always somewhere to see whats up if you are worried. You can always ring us and leave a message too.

We have a field trip coming up and also just fyi we are back to our regular opening hours since our Christmas break.
