News from the Janet Frame Eden Street Trust


May 2014

Thank you
The summer tour season ended on April 30th and we sincerely thank all the Friends of the Janet Frame House who have helped our Trust once again to keep the doors of 56 Eden Street open to visitors.
Your donations and subscriptions swell our coffers; your practical skills are invaluable in the challenges we have with house maintenance and gardening; your volunteering supervision enables us to open the house daily for 6 months of the year.
The Trust is also very grateful to Auckland artist Annette Isbey who has donated a handsome portrait of Janet Frame to us. The reception room is beautifully enhanced by this art work.
