• Barwell Boys and Little Brothers Family and Friends Association

    Formed in the late 1970s, this Association brought together the British boys who migrated to South Australia in the 1910s and 20s to participate in the State Government’s farm apprenticeship scheme. Although the original migrants have now passed on, their descendants continue to meet annually.
