Following the earthquakes that occurred early morning on 14 November, Fyffe House is CLOSED indefinitely.  Although the house appears to have sustained minimal damage, it will remain closed until until a full structural engineering assessment can be carried out. 

There may be some time needed to tidy up inside following the assessment, and fortunately our staff are all safe.
