Five years ago you helped me with the reception and catering at the Centenary Banquet of the Submarine Service at Lancaster Town Hall before the First Sea Lord. That also was a marvellous occasion, and I promised to write extravagantly in thanking you, so that you could show all your prospective clients. I let you down on that occasion, but at least I knew that when it came to our daughters wedding, there were only two people who I would ever contemplate doing the catering arrangements; your good selves.
It is difficult to convey a big enough “thank you” for all you did before, during and after “The Day” itself. I hope this letter captures something of our gratitude. May your enterprise continue to flourish. Be assured that we shall recommend you both to anyone who is entertaining a “big event”.
