The total external support given for this project totals £5,500 shared between the John Hewson Bequest, the Residents Association and the HGS Trust.
The Fellowship Committee wishes all Suburb residents the very best for the New Year. Fellowship House will close as usual for the holiday period on Sunday 23rd December until Wednesday 2nd January. Some improvements to lighting in the courtyard and in the hall will be made during this time. The traditional New Years Party with entertainment for Fellowship Members will be held on Tuesday 8th January. Reservations necessary.
As usual, Fellowship House will be closed for the month of August for redecorations – and a well earned rest for staff and volunteers! The first Tuesday Talk after reopening will be on September 4th – a DVD showing of the John Freeman ‘Face to Face’ interview with John Osborne.
Janette was a leading light for many years on the Fellowship Committee and will be remembered for her hard work and wise counsel.
