Just a note to thank you and the wonderful staff at The West Wing for helping to make our AGM such a success. Everyone was so happy and full of praise that they failed to fill in the feedback forms, but all unanimous in their appreciation. We would very much like to return next year. Rowena H

Peter who was the Operations Manager was fantastic, we had some problems with the registrar and he called them which was very reassuring to us. It was also good to meet him the day before and to see that he was very capable and unflappable. Abby & Nick T
