From Shaun Trigg, Charity Fundraiser BBQ Party –Mr & Mrs Trigg

“Hi Gaynor,
Just dropping you a line to thank you and your team for making our fundraiser such a success.
Everyone from toddlers to pensioners had a brilliant time at your superb venue at Cottrell Park and were very impressed with the outstanding facility, fantastic barbecue and later on the delicious chicken curry not to mention the entertainment.
Special thanks to your good self,  not forgetting Sarah and Fraser who were most helpful.
All the guests were made to feel really welcome and everyone is looking forward to our next visit.
The total sum raised in aid of Prostate Cymru stands at £1509 for the event and that sum will be rolled over to another event later in the year to then be presented to the charity itself at the Penarth Freemasons Lodge at Stanwell Road.
Thankyou once more, and I look forward to our next meeting.

Sincerely yours,
Shaun Trigg”

From Theresa Godwin –
“Hello just a quick email to thank you for our wonderful lunch yesterday. We came for Mothering Sunday lunch even though it was a busy day & we were a very large group nothing was too much effort. The food & service by all members of staff was outstanding. I cannot recommend your venue enough. Please pass on our thanks to all your staff for making it such a special party.”

From Julie Brown –
“Hi Shelley,

Apologies – I should have emailed you on Monday! The Mayor was absolutely delighted.
Everything was brilliant, and your attention to detail beforehand made setting up enjoyable and not stressful.
The food was very well received and enjoyed by all, the Band were very happy and The Deputy Mayor (if he becomes Mayor next time), would like to do it all over again!
I think I may owe a bar bill – Chloe could see that I was busy (dancing), it’s the one for the Bands drinks. (I paid for the food).
The marquee would make a fabulous venue for the civic service lunch and I hope to suggest it to the next Mayor. This is not a fund raising event, it follows the official Church service, so it will depend on where the New Mayor is from. (It usually takes place on a Sunday in September).
David was kind enough to purchase one of the auction prizes for £200. I couldn’t take a card – do you think I should drop him a line?? (It feels really cheeky as he did so much for us already).
We are well over a £1000 up for the charities, everyone was very generous.
As soon as we have a final figure The Mayor will write thank you letters of course.
All very best wishes and many thanks, Julie
Julie Brown
Personal Assistant to the Mayor”

From Andy Morgan – 
“Hi Gaynor,
We just wanted to thank you and all your staff for the event yesterday.

Many thanks to all of you, we would recommend you without hesitation. Hope you all have a very happy Christmas.
Best wishes,
Andy Morgan”

From Anthony Perkins – 8370ebd6-2cca-11e2-8f46-bc305bd9eec9
“Hi Shelley,
I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you at Cottrell Park you have allowed us to raise nearly £35,000 over the last 5 years for Marie Curie. I have decided to take a couple of years out as I feel I have exhausted the generosity of my friends. I would hope that we could approach Cottrell park again in the future and you will be as supportive to this amazing charity.
Kind regards, Anthony”

From Steve Jenkins, Meeting Room Booking –
“Charles Derby have held 12 other seminars throughout the UK and 3 of the Directors present had been at all 12 – this was voted by them as the Best venue for appearance, Room, Surroundings, Food, organisation and Price.
So not much better accolade than that! – we use Hotels a lot, some of them 4* and the room venue and the food was every bit as good if not better than them.
Everything went right from the initial booking with you and being shown around, through to the room set up on the day – signs to the room and the lady who served the Coffee/Lunch (June?) was very accommodating as we severely over-run our 12.30pm time slot but still managed to get the food out served hot.
A nice Lunch selection – good food – good quality and the use of a separate dining room area was very good.
So thanks – I will advise colleagues who regularly organise meetings to use you and we will of course return ourselves.
Kind Regards,
Steve Jenkins DipPFS CeMap”

From Claire Lewis, attended a Christmas Party –
