Its always difficult to pass on what people say about you, but having assembled so many lovely letters of thanks and compliments, it seems a shame not to share them on my web site. Here is a small selection of lovely things people wrote:

“Just wanted to tell you that mum and dad said the beef wellingtons were a huge success and the other members of the family who heard about them were very jealous. Thank you for all that you did on the Saturday. I’ve been given a refund for the cost of the hall finally although no real apology for the mess up with the heating! However, everyone had a lovely time, the food was superb and by the end of the weekend there was nothing remaining, apart from a few bottles! Mum and dad said how successful it all was and wanted to thank you for being so inconspicuous and efficient, again. It will be a topic of conversation for many months to come. We will certainly recommend you and may be will be in touch again with another family celebration, although this time if it is winter in a lovely warm place. Best wishes to you and your family.”
