The Fellowship Committee is delighted to report on the overwhelming success of the Iris Country Fair.
We experienced ideal weather and all attendees arrived ready to enjoy the iconic Fair.
The Fellowship Art Fundraiser was a sellout, with the beautiful artwork created by our members, friends of Frensham and current parents - an attractive offer to Fair patrons.
While Fellowship Wares and Memorabilia proved popular, with the bespoke custom socks, water bottles, Birthday Island Gin and irises pulled from Frensham Gardens proved to be perfect Christmas presents.
The Committee wishes to extend its thanks and appreciation to all our members who supported not only Fellowship but Frensham Schools on the day and in preparations for the Fair. Countless hours were given to the efforts, and we thank you!
Fellowship Iris Country Fair Drinks
On the eve of the Iris Country Fair, Frensham Fellowship welcomed all members from our community – partners, children and current parents – to Briars Inn for canapes and drinks.
It was a fabulous occasion to welcome in an exciting Saturday ahead and sample our Community’s Birthday Island Gin.
Thank you to Ms Melanie East (1993) for Briars Inn’s generous hospitality and Lord Howe Island Distilling Co (collaborators of the Gin) for ensuring a wonderful evening.
Birthday Island Gin
The Committee was thrilled to share our community’s Birthday Island Gin over the weekend of the Iris Country Fair and hear the wonderful feedback. The gin’s connections to our School could not be stronger – made by a current family of Frensham and son of an Old Girl, using citrus from our Fellowship Members orchards and rose petals from Frensham’s gardens.
The gin is available for a limited run and available to purchase: https://www.craftfoundry.com.au/products/birthday-island-gin-700ml.
Proceeds from this Gin directly support the programmes and initiatives of Frensham Fellowship.
Noting this is the final newsletter for 2023, the Committee wish all Fellowship Members a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Thank you for your support at the many Fellowship events over 2023 and we look forward to great 2024.
