Fawkes House wins 4th award in 4 years!
What a fabulous night !! The heavens opened up and had all the guests running to the safety of the Boronia Room for a glass of bubbles and enjoy Mother Nature’s spectacle , a November thunderstorm. Plans were underway for a possible acoustic night via candle light but it was not necessary. The fairy lights twinkled, the dinner smelt sumptuous and Lynda Smyth and The Borrowed Few were able to amplify their amazing tunes.
