What a wonderful day that was yesterday!  Thank you so much for organising it.  The Fry exhibition was so much better for having the talk first, and the visit to Great Bardfield was just amazing.  We both enormously enjoyed ourselves.  Many, many thanks

Thank you for an absolutely wonderful day!

Well was a really enjoyable and informative trip…loved it .Thank you.

Just a brief note to say a big thank you for the splendid Kettle’s Yard outing to see the Ravilious exhibition. It’s been a while since we took part in any Friends event and it was rather special to sit on the coach again with old acquaintances and enjoy their company.

Once again, thank you for your peerless organisation on Saturday . It was a memorable day.
