"Just a quick e-mail to thank you and all the staff for a great evening last Friday, we really enjoyed it.

Several of our members said it was better than our Christmas dinner. That's not saying their was anything wrong with the Christmas dinner, I think it's just that with the Piper and the Scottish dancing, it was something different for them. Also I don't think several of the had eaten haggis before, so again something new.

So again, thanks for all your help."
