    Summer Swing Festival

    Dear Mr Beale

    I apologise for this late email as I had meant to send this to you at the beginning of the week. However, I wanted you to know how much my friend and I had enjoyed the Summer Swing Festival on Friday 14 August. It was a huge success and enjoyed by everyone I spoke to which was a lot of people. A superb imitative which I hope you will repeat next year along with the rumoured Jazz evening I hope. Will really does need congratulating for this initiative and pulling it off so well. As always the staff were superb and did a wonderful job at not just serving but really looking after everyone. The chefs also need complementing too the standard of the food was excellent

    My thanks to everyone for this wonderful occasion Kind regards

    Hello Andrew, what great team work on the Beekeeping Experience Day. West Lodge Park characteristic thoroughness and attention to detail, from Adrian who carried our heavy boxes and directed the guests, Will who welcomed us and sorted out the room, Matthew for organising lunch, phone numbers, and looking after us at the end of the day, Andrew who asked us if there was anything we needed doing at the apiary when we there a few days before, and Jane who prepared all the information packs. Lunch was great, the pork excellent and the honey parfait popular. It all came together, a big thank you to everyone we encountered on Saturday, and others behind the scenes who we did not see, for making the day go smoothly for the guests and for us. There is a great atmosphere in the hotel and we really enjoyed running the beekeeping day, it went so quickly. The weather was great too!

    We are looking forward to the staff visits on 14 July.

    Best wishes, Mary and Ron

    Dear Andrew,

    Thank you from the Bridge Quartet for your wonderful hospitality and generosity last Friday. We really enjoyed the evening and meeting members of our knowledgeable audience after the concert over tea.

    For me it was a pleasure to chat to you and Trevor and appreciate the enthusiasm and anticipation which lies behind such a successful and long-standing enterprise.

    We would love to be able to return and play at West Lodge sometime, in the meantime I hope you enjoy our recent CD, released a couple of days before we came to play for you!

    I wanted to say 'thank you' for allowing us to attend the concert on Friday evening. Both I and my mother had a lovely time; as well as the talented musicians, mum was particularly impressed with the meal and the wonderful company at dinner!

    Thanks again for your generosity in letting staff attend these events.

    Kind regards

    Mary Howell called me on Wednesday morning to thank you and the wonderful restaurant staff for a fantastic evening at the concert last Friday.

    They were a table of 8, it was her husband’s 80th birthday and she said she simply cannot praise the restaurant staff enough who looked after them superbly. She also said that the concert was just wonderful.

    A happy customer!

    Dear Ben

    City Livery Club Music Section
    Guy Fawkes Bonfire Night Dinner & Dance Saturday 5th November 2011

    Further to our telephone conversation last week, I am writing to advise you that at our recent Committee Meeting, our members requested that I write and thank you personally, and indeed all of your staff at West Lodge, for making our weekend with you so special and enjoyable. They were particularly impressed that we were able to have our own private room and how attentive your staff were that evening and throughout the weekend.

    We were blessed with such good weather that quite a number enjoyed walking in and around the grounds during Saturday and Sunday morning.

    We met with Mr. Trevor Beale this week and he was so pleased to hear how much our Music Section members enjoyed the weekend at West Lodge and how you and your Staff had created such a special weekend.

    We are all looking forward to another weekend with you, maybe at another time of the year and I would be very pleased if you could forward one or two of your 2012 Events Brochure.

    Kindest regards and once again, very many thanks.

    Yours sincerely

    Hon Secretary – Music Section

    Dear Andrew

    I just wanted to let you know that the course was very informative and detailed and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day which was very well run and very professionally put together with lovely food throughout the day.

    My partner would be interested in doing this course but I understand that another day is not yet planned. I attended with a girlfriend whose husband was on a golf trip with my partner and we asked if they could have a private course at all but we were advised to contact you on this subject.

    Great Day!

    Thank you

    Dear Sharon,

    I am writing on behalf of the NSPCC Barnet and District branch to thank you so much for all your friendly and efficient help in respect of our Musical Soiree last night.

    Not only did we have the beautiful Lancaster Room for the concert but also the John Evelyn Room for the reception and interval which was a delight for our guests in being able to move around in such lovely surroundings. Your kindness in giving us these rooms on a complimentary basis meant that we were able to raise over £1700.00 for the NSPCC which was a great result.

    Thank you, and also Adam and the other members of staff, for helping us to make it such a successful evening.

    I have of course writing separately to Andrew, to express our warmest thanks.

    With all good wishes,

    Yours sincerely,
    Joy Mather
    Chairman – Barnet and District Branch
