We were delighted with how our conference ran. The process was seamless - I really could not fault it! I felt very well supported in the run up, and it was lovely to be able to sit back and soak in the event as it happened, in the trust that everything was under control. Ten out of ten!"

On behalf of the Scout Association I would like to pass on a huge thank you to the team at Church House for hosting our Silver Wolf Luncheon on Saturday. The event went very well, and we had a lot of compliments from guests about the well-dressed tables, delicious food, and excellently mannered staff. We were especially happy with how your staff responded promptly, courteously, and effectively to matters arising on the day, particularly when two of our guests were unfortunately taken ill."

I just wanted to say a big thank you for last week. You and your team were really helpful throughout the day, and I even appreciated the littlest things. For example, assembling the big banner, keeping food aside for me, printing signs for me and if there was an issue with our presentation slides then someone would notify me. You have an amazing team and I am always impressed how friendly and helpful everyone is. You’re a joy to work with. Thank you, once again."

Neelam Sheemar, Stakeholder and Events Manager, Electrical Safety First

I wanted to thank you and Sue for all your help last week. We really enjoyed our week with you and the team. Everybody was extremely helpful and organised which made our job so much easier. We had nothing but good comments from the delegates, especially around the look of the venue, the catering and the friendliness of staff, so please pass these thanks along to the team. I hope to work with you again soon."
