Bakers Christmas Tea

Dear Martina,

I want to thank you on behalf of all our friends who enjoyed tea at Bakers Hall on Friday last week. You worked so hard to make the occasion special for us and all our friends have written to say how much they enjoyed it.

You told me that you volunteer at weekends in a charity shop in Wimbledon, so that has prompted us to make a donation in grateful thanks for your kindness. We have decided to make our donation to the Salvation Army to help those less fortunate than ourselves.

Buffet lunch

Just a very special thank you from me for each of your help in making the event exceed my expectations to become a spectacular success.  There was quite a buzz in the room and I had more than one flattering comment about both the hall which not all were aware of and of the catering. All of you really made an informal event special and flow so well – a great lunch and a really successful event.

Thank you so much for yesterday. It was a pleasure to work with you and the Beadle. Everything was great. You did a wonderful job for us and I was absolutely delighted that everything we discussed had been fully taken on board – the seats downstairs were in rows and close to the front as I had asked for; the tables were perfectly positioned; the vases for the flowers were remembered and a perfect size; the timings were spot on; and you have the most friendliness of welcomes as people arrived – thank you.

I must say it was an absolute pleasure to be working with people who quite simply, wanted to get everything right for us and you did. A number of the guests commented on how wonderful the hall looked too.

I thought the food was great, the caterers very helpful, the tables laid out beautifully and I loved the wine glass for the water.

Thank you everyone – we are already receiving feedback on how much people enjoyed it.
