What a great start to the festive season we had on December 1st at the BOLON Showroom in Paddington Sydney. Mark Andrews, MD The Andrews Group | BOLON Partner, presented the Bolon story, born in 1949 by textile waste turning into rag rugs. Today Bolon is a sustainable design-led innovator collaborating with designers and architects worldwide. Special guest Deputy Head of Mission, Per Linnér, Embassy of Sweden in Canberra gave us an update from Sweden. Another highlight of the evening was the Lucia performance from the Swedish School in Sydney.
Big thank you goes to Bolon and our Christmas present sponsors, Funkis Swedish Forms, Swedish School in Sydney, Nordic Fusion, Football Development Australia, Milla’s Vineyard Estate and Lewis Estate.
SACC Glögg and Lucia Event
It was our very great pleasure to host the SACC annual Christmas gathering in the BOLON showroom last week. The Lucia procession was certainly the highlight and we’d like to sincerely thank the children and teachers from the Swedish School for treating us to this special tradition.
We were delighted to welcome Per Linnér, Deputy Head of Mission and Malin Nilsson, Sweden Trade and Promotion Officer from the Embassy of Sweden in Canberra and of course, Jan Gardberg the SACC President and other board members.
Camilla Jennings deserves a special mention for pulling the event together at a very busy time of year. The involvement of Funkis (catering), Milla’s Vineyard Estate (Wines) and Nordic Fusion (Glögg and Raffle) was also greatly appreciated.
We’ve had some lovely feedback that the story of BOLON was well received and that the event was a great success. Being invited to be a part of the Swedish Australian community and to host in our beautiful space was certainly a highlight for The Andrews Group in 2022.
A message from the Andrews family
We look forward to building our connection with the community in 2023 and wish you a wonderful festive season.
The Andrews Family and the Bolon Team
