I just wanted to write and say a massive thank you for today! It’s been an incredible day and my sister was absolutely over the moon with it. The host was incredible and clearly so passionate about your role. Thank you thank you! We also didn’t notice until we were leaving that there was an extra special surprise for my sister which was a really nice touch. Fantastic day. - Kelsie, April 2023
