Good to see you both today... hope the weekend has gone well for you. Our friends thoroughly enjoyed the morning and were impressed how friendly everyone was. Good to have a chat and catch up with Mark Thatcher too.
I shall count my pennies over the next few days and let you know my requirements.... see what I can stretch to.!
Many thanks for a great day , as always ,good to see Jamie ,can't remember last time I had seen him, congratulations on 15 years and I hope many more
We wish you well on your anniversary and hope you all have an enjoyable weekend. Unfortunately, we will not be able to attend as my wife has broken 3 toes in her foot! I have to be on hand! I wish you continued success in the future.
Very sorry can’t be with you all this special weekend.
Thinking of you, and hope you all have a great time, and that the sun will shine.
CONGRATULATIONS on your 15th anniversary ...
Unfortunately I am off on holiday tomorrow and unable to call in. Have a great weekend and thanks for your help and advice over the last 10 years since I started out on the garden railway. Its wonderful to have your shop in driving distance.
