Dear Ray and Jackie,
Just a note to say thank you for organising the ball. As you know it is
the first time we have attended, and
we thought (and the other 10 members of our party), that the whole
evening was fantastic!
Great food, band, and brilliant entertainment!
Andrew's brother, Richard is having great fun on his new chopper bike!
You'll probably see him at Rose Green on it!!
Anyway, thanks again, and Happy Christmas!

Thanks for Saturday it was a great night/morning and a real tribute to
all the hard work you all put into the evening.
Thanks for a really great night, everyone on our table really enjoyed
This was our fourth year, but only the first where we had our own table - two
couples had been to a previous, but the other four couples were 'virgins'.
Well done on the amount of funds raised, it is a great tribute to all your hard
Did not realise how well Val & Paul know you all, they are keen to not only come
next year, but drag us to the summer event as well.
I saw Scott at th e golf club on Monday, I apologise for previously not knowing
who he is.
He tells me you are already taking bookings for next year - so please reserve us
a table of 12, we'll be looking to keep our 100% attendance.
Once again, many thanks for a wonderful evening and congratulations on
the funds raised.

Just wanted to write and say 'Thank You" for a
wonderful evening on Saturday.
I enjoyed it even more than last year and have every intention of making Martins
Ball a tradition in my Diary.
You are an incredible couple and should be so proud of yourselves for
turning a very negative happening in your lives into such a positive.
Scott is such a tribute to you and to see him as happy and balanced as
he is amongst all that has happened, is another tribute to you. I am sure Martin
is very much with you and would be so proud of you both. It doesn't take away
your pain but I am sure it must go a long way to know that you are doing such a
worthwhile thing in the face of adversity.
My love and best wishes to you all.
Dear Ray and Jackie,
just a short email to thank you both and your helpers for the excellent
evening. Barry and I really enjoyed ourselves. We both thought that
the entertainment was great although I did hear gossip in the ladies that the
drums went on for too long - well you can't please everyone.
Once again thank you so much and can you add Henry and Peggy Wood to the
list for next year please.
Take care, carry on the good work,
Barry and Sue xxxxxxxxxx
Another excellent night, the best yet, you have
certainly set a yard stick for next year. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening,
along with everyone else.

We didn't think that the ball of last year could be
bettered, however, we were totally wrong. The ball this year was even better
than last year.
City Connection were absolutely fantastic and all the boys fell in love
with the lead singer. The cabaret was totally different from anything we have
ever seen. Not only was it extremely funny but they were very good musicians as
well. The dinner was superb, as was the service. All in all it was a fantastic
night and as we all stayed overnight, it made a great weekend.
We know the effort that you put into the Ball is immense and we would
like to thank you very much for that work and hope that the Meningitis Charity

Thanks again for a super evening. We, and all our
guests, enjoyed it very much.

Henri and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and look
forward to next year. Your love for Martin shone through in many many ways
throughout the evening and your commitment to this cause is a wonderful gift to
all of us.
