Good morning Catherine,

I hope you are well?

I would like to thank you; Ash and all your staff for your fantastic service that we received this past week, we and our dealers really appreciated you hospitality.

I would like to thank you personally for all the help you gave me with setting up and preparing this conference, you were very professional and a pleasure to deal with.

Our dealer who is Vegan was blown away by the meals that your chef prepared for him. HE has just been over to Germany for a trip and be said there meals in Germany could not compare to your standard and quality.

Please can you send me the final invoice so that I can get Monica to pay any outstanding amounts?

I hope you have a great weekend and a fantastic birthday party for your daughter.

Kind regards
Daren Harvett

Dear Gary, Pat  and Catherine,

On behalf of all HOGGS who attended your braai at the lapa, a very sincere thank you to you and anyone else involved in the organisation of a wonderful evening.  Jerry Day was a tonic and he helped us all relax, enjoy ourselves and let our hair down.  Your generosity will not be forgotten and I trust the spin off will be fruitful.  I certainly will do as much as I can to promote St Ives as the jewel of the Midlands

With kind regards,


Dear Catherine


Our year end function was an absolute success.


Compliments to the chef on preparing a scrumptious lunch, the staff cannot stop with the praises for the exceptional quality of food served on the day.


We thank you for accommodating us on the deck. The games were exceptional fun and the space provided was sufficient.


Well done on delivering exceptional quality food and venue. The setup was beautiful and contributed positively to the ambiance and fantastic scenery.


Best wishes for the festive season and a happy new year.


Kind regards
