    Christmas party night – December 2015

  • Hi Nicky,

    The evening was a wonderful success, thank you.  The senior officers were delighted with the venue, the food and the service we received.  Our commanding officer was particularly impressed that all of the cadets were treated as young adults rather than children by your waiting staff.

    The squadron will meet this evening as usual and I’m sure that we will get lots of positive feedback from everyone.  They had a fantastic time on Saturday and were all buzzing at how the evening was the best annual dinner they’d been to for a number of years.

    This is all a great credit to yourself, Steve, and your team of kitchen and waiting staff.  Our commanding officer tried to find Steve towards the end of the evening to pass on his appreciation for everything he did for us but he had already left for the night.

    Many many thanks from me personally for all that you have done to make the night the tremendous success it was and the hangovers were not too traumatic thankfully!

    Pudsey Air Cadets Dinner – November 2015

  • Hi Nicky – it was fantastic everything went well, the food was amazing – I had already had plenty of Prosecco prior to everyone arriving.

    Thank you so much for all your help and support and can you also thank Steve and the team.
