…Thank you for the invitation and kind hospitality – great table and company and probably the best table there last night.  Look forward to hopefully catching up with everyone in the near future”…

 

…”Thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable evening last night. Graeme’s email below sums up the event perfectly.  I look forward to the next awards dinner!”… 

 

…” Thank you and your colleagues for a good entertaining evening.  Well done to you all for your award.  Only observation I would like to make is that if Trevor needs a 7 iron from the ‘White Hart’ to the Hilton, is that he may need a golf lesson.  Thanks to all the team”…

 

…”Firstly many thanks for CAS and RateSetter for the invite this was truly appreciated, it was great evening and secondly I would like to echo Graeme’s comments as the table and company were indeed first class.  Speak soon”…
