The venue for this year’s Christmas Party is special. It is a house that has risen from the ashes of an infamous deliberately lit fire in the kitchen of what was then a restaurant. It has been wonderfully restored by the owners, Peter and Bridget Hawthorne, and is now their home. The National Trust honoured their work this year with a Built Heritage Award that includes the following commendation:
This project involved total reconstruction of a house on the edge of destruction showing an extraordinary amount of passion and commitment by its owners who clearly love it.
