Furnihire has worked with D&D Marquees for a lot of years, we have worked with an harmonious and friendly relationship to offer the customer the very best.
John Moore, April 2019
Andrew was an absolute pleasure to deal with, from start to finish we could not of been more happy with the service we received. The end of result of how the marquee turned out was amazing, attention to detail was next to none and any queries we had along the way were responded to and dealt with immediately. It made our wedding day so special and I was blown away with how it turned out. Thank you, to you and your team for creating the vision we had dreamed of.
Mr and Mrs Preston, December 2018
Absolutely amazing service! Couldn't rate them higher. Really friendly, helpful and responsive. Provided lots of help to ensure we had everything we needed- thought of things we hadn't even considered. Beautiful marquee even better than we hoped for. Would definitely use them again. Thank you so much
Natalie Hayes, October 2018
Thanks to the hard work of all of your team the marquee was perfect. We had many positive comments about how beautiful it looked.
Your staff were a pleasure to work with and were always available to talk to and give advice. They are a credit to your company.
We would recommend your company to anyone interested in hiring a marquee.
Online Review, October 2018
Superb service from everyone involved at D&D. They made our wedding day so perfect. They returned to tidy a few bits within a few hours of calling to make sure everything was perfect. Cant thank them enough!
Rob and Louise, October 2018
Thank you to the D&D team for putting up such a wonderful marquee for our wedding day at Hinwick House. From the start, Andrew was very responsive to all of our questions and provided us with his fair and honest opinions throughout. We had asked for quotes from several suppliers but ultimately went with D&D because of our interactions with Andrew.
In the lead up to the day, the entire team that helped put up the marquee were so accommodating and efficient in putting up the marquee. We thought the overall look was so professional and just stunning for the venue, in particular the clear gable end which allowed us to have a great view of the beautiful house and lawn at our venue.
Everything was also very easy to use (e.g. lights, generator, lifting up the sides) and the team were on hand to explain these all to us. Overall, we couldn't be happier with the large role that D&D played in making our wedding day truly special and memorable and for being so reliable throughout.
Catherine Cheung, July 2018
Please accept this letter as our big thank you for the supply, installation and removal of the marquee for our daughter’s Wedding on 20 June 2009. As we had not arranged anything of this nature before we were extremely apprehensive and concerned that everything should be just perfect for the 'day'. We invited a number of organisations to come to the site and discuss our requirements and submit their offer for the marquee arrangement on a like-for-like basis. Although you were neither the cheapest nor most expensive of the quotes we received we chose your company from your general approach and presentation, your suggestions and recommendations and by visiting other events where you had supplied similar marquees. The marquee supplied was immaculate and very clean and tidy. All your site team members worked quickly, efficiently and were extremely courteous and obliging with all our requests. Their attention to detail was without question. I was on-site both for installation and removal and they worked very well as a team and cleaned up leaving the field as found and ready for the horses to return.
On the day I can say that without exception our guests gasped in appreciation as they entered and many told us it was the best looking marquee they had ever visited. Obviously the choice of the tables, chairs, lighting, decorations and flowers all aided and added to the effect but we are pleased to state that we truly believe we made the right decision by choosing your company and have no hesitation or reservations whatsoever in recommending you to others.
Once again thank you very much indeed for helping make our daughter's wedding day so special and memorable for all the right reasons...
Eric and Stephanie Jeffs, Biggleswade, 29 June 2009
Please find some photos of the inside of the marquee. I hope you will be able to use them to your advantage.
Here also are some truthful words about your service:-
Sam & I contacted Andrew approximately 8 months before our wedding day. Sam was very encouraged by his response and we decided to go with D & D for our marquee even though they weren’t necessarily the cheapest.
Leading up to the week there was plenty of communication about certain aspects, and never once did it appear a problem if we were changing our minds. On the day of putting up the marquee, Jay was a star, even when I had the marquee put at the wrong angle. A solution was quickly found and then end result was probably better then the original plan. The marquee simply looked stunning.
The day before our wedding vandals tried to ruin the occasion, but a phone call to Andrew, and very quickly an engineer attended site, rectified everything, and all was well, Sam didn’t even know about it!
Many thanks to Andrew, Diana, Jay and all your staff for all your help
Drew & Sam Bradshaw
Sorry for the some what later letter but my honeymoon was fairly long and then straight back to work. I just wanted to thank you for organising our Marquee for our wedding. I was really impressed by the quality of the goods you provided right down to the little extra’s like the night lights, bar and dance floor. Everyone said how lovely the Marquee looked. From the moment I booked you, you kept me updated and delivered everything on time with my requests and budget. It was important for me that during this economic recession, as we were booking the Marquee for our wedding, that we used a reputable reliable company. It was also important for me that I used a local company.
You proved to me that you were the best in your field. Thank you for helping me make my wedding run smoothly and taking away a lot of the stress of organising the venue. I would willingly recommend you to anyone.
Back from honeymoon now! And just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for a fantastic marquee and service for our wedding at Rockingham Castle on 3 July 2009. The marquee was perfect and made the day just perfect.
Thank you for all your help before the wedding and to your team for setting it up on the day.
Chris and Lucie.
Received via email - 25 July 2009
Just wanted to say thank you to all your staff for the Marquee on Saturday May 30th 2009.
The whole product, delivery and organisation was excellent. My guests were very impressed with the whole Marquee and the extras that Andrew suggested.
We will definitely use your company again for our future celebrations.
Even though it was a small do in our back garden the whole thing was fairytale with such beautiful surroundings.
Please feel free to use as a reference to future customers.

I would just like to express my sincere thanks for the excellent service I have received from our company in prodiving the marquee for my Son's 21st Birthday. This is the fourth time you have provided a marquee for functions in my garden, including two Summer Balls and two Birthday parties and on each occasion the services you provide have been impeccable.
I have often found that family run businesses such as yours have a far greater degree of commitment to customer satisfaction than some larger companies and I can honestly say that, even though some of my requests have come late in the day, you have always done your best to cater for my needs with the utmost courtesy and efficiency. In addition to this your pricing structure has always been extremely competitive and I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to any potential customes who are looking for value for money, efficiency and the utmost courtesy.
Maria and I would like to take this opportunity of wishing you and your colleagues continued success in the future.
With kind regards

Marquee Hire at 28 High Street, Yelvertoft - Wedding Saturday 6 June 2009
What a truly amazing day we had on Saturday 6th June for our daughters wedding reception here at "Stoneleigh". The rain came, the sun didn't shine, but happiness and joy just radiated from both inside and outside your fabulous marquee, which made Anna and Martin's day complete. It has become part of our home over the last few days, enhancing parts of our garden we had taken for granted over the years, and as it is being dismantled a mixed feeling of sadness that it has gone, and joy at its memories is quite overwhelming. Both you and your team has been second to non- wonderfully working together to create a mini palace at our home of over 32 years.
There have been so many compliments from people, and I hope that the photos which we will send as soon as they are ready, can reflect just a little of the electric atmosphere that was achieved, both during the day reception, through to the twinkling lights of the evening disco.
To say thank you for all your company's organisational skills is not enough. The personal attention that we have received from yourself and your family, right from the day you first came to measure up back in February 2008, through to our last minute decision to order a heater, has been dealt with in a wonderfully efficient, helpful and personal manner. The precision from your team for both erecting and dismantling the marquee has been faultless - all carried out with great respect for the property, and lots of good humour. We cannot recommend your company highly enough to anyone who wants to turn a dream day into a reality!
Our thanks to you all.
Rosemary and David Shakespeare, "Stoneleigh", 28 High Street, Yelvertoft, Northants.
When catering for a marquee wedding or any other outside function everything has to be exactly right on the day.
That is why we at The Austin Fel Partnership are always ready to recommend D&D. Marquees to our customers, happy in the knowledge that they are in safe hands. Reliability, service and attention to detail along with the personal touch that only a family run business can offer are the key reasons behind D.&.D. Marquee Hire's success.
Recommendation is the best form or advertising; may they go from strength to strength.

Dear D&D Marquees
Thank you so much for the wonderful marquee you provided for our wedding day (August 6th) When I first walked in Icouldn’t believe how big it felt, even though it was on our back lawn, it felt so much more spacious.
We had so many comments about how beautiful it was and how well you had managed to incorporate a tree into it. I was a little worried about having ten people around some of the tables because as you had suggested eight was more comfortable, however we did fit ten around two of the tables and they people weren’t too squashed.
The people who erected and took down the marquee were fantastic. I had recently planted the flower beds to look their best for the wedding and your men allowed me time to move a couple of plants that were going to get squashed before completing the job. They were very careful and despite it being a tight fit they did not squash any of my plants or damage any of the flower beds.
The linings and chandeliers gave the marquee that final finishing touch which brought a lump to my throat. Once again thank you.
Catherine & Peter Billingham, Broughton, Northamptonshire
Wedding at Chicheley Hall, 11th August.
Now that the fun and excitement of our daughter’s wedding at Chicheley Hall have subsided a little, I felt I must write to you to express my very grateful thanks for the wonderful marquee and accessories which you provided for my daughter’s wedding at Chicheley Hall.
It is always difficult for a client to make a choice from a number of possible companies, but the care and attention which you gave to my daughter’s very exacting requirements (!) were immense and the competitive price was a great help to me personally! I spoke to her only yesterday and asked if there was anything she would have changed, with the benefit of hindsight – “not a single thing” was her reply and she particularly asked me to pass on her own special thanks for all your help.Erecting the two adjoining marquees and catering tent for 220 guests in the dismal weather last week was always a challenging task which you coped with magnificently – nothing was too much trouble. We have already received many letters and telephone calls saying how wonderful the marquees were and especially the children’s area, which fitted our requirements perfectly.
Please pass on our sincere thanks to all your staff for their kind attention – it would have been nothing without you! Please feel free to show this letter to any other potential clients and use me as a reference in any way you wish.
Christopher M. Smith, Bromham, Bedford
Dear Diana (and team),
A short note to say a very big thank you for providing such a wonderful marquee.
We were thrilled with the service that we received, it meant we had one less thing to worry about. You were all set up well before time and everything went so smoothly. You had been recommended to us, and we shall certainly pass on your details.
Thank you very much.
Charlotte and Matt Jarrad, Stoke Goldington, Buckinghamshire
Dear Andrew, Diana and Malcolm,
Once again, thank you so much for everything you did to contribute to a wonderful weekend for Fiona and Gavin’s wedding. The marquee looked fantastic and so many of our guests were very impressed by it
We were also very impressed by the professionalism of the young men who erected the tent under Andrew’s direction. It was all completed much quicker than we thought and the co-ordination of the delivery of the generator and toilets was very efficient; which I am sure was down to you, Diana. On the Monday following, everything was dismantled and taken away efficiently as well.
All the suggested little touches – e.g. the ribbon and pegs for the hats, the hanging baskets and the spotlights on flowers and shrubs which could be seen through the windows of the marquees and by the river made such a difference.
We attach a few pictures that you might find interesting. A friend of mine took a picture of the hanging hats and when I get that I will scan it and send on to you. Thank you once again. We have another daughter so you never know we may be calling upon you again.

Dear Mr & Mrs Darlington & Andrew,

We just wanted to write and thank you for supplying us with such a lovely marquee for our wedding on 1st October. It was lovely and clean and just what we had wanted. It was also warm thanks to your advice on the heater! The day went so smoothly and was absolutely perfect.
Thank you for your help in making it happen.

Dear Andrew, Malcolm and Diana,
Thank you so much for supplying a beautiful marquee for our daughter’s wedding on September 17th. It was everything we had hoped for and was a significant factor in making the weekend a very memorable one for the whole family.
You have been very kind and accommodating in meeting our every need. We very much appreciated your thoughtfulness and co-operation with working with others involved during the event. All things which make for a thoroughly happy and enjoyable occasion. We shall have no reservations in recommending your company and using you again in the future.
Mr & Mrs Dawson, Gt. Brickhill, Milton Keynes
Belated thanks for the marvellous job that you and the team did at our wedding reception in August. All of our guests commentated on the quality of the marquee and accessories, and we would not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends or relatives.
We also greatly appreciated the “total package” that you were able to put together, saving us the effort of locating portable toilets etc.
Please find enclosed photo of the interior of the marquee. Feel free to use it in your promotional material if you wish.
Brenda & Paul Foster, Little Staughton, Bedford
Dear Diana, Malcolm and Andrew,
I will never be able to thank you enough for the wonderful service you gave us over the last few months. It felt that nothing we asked for was too much trouble, and Andrew and his team made erecting the marquee on a difficult site look easy!
The marquee itself was fantastic and everyone who came to the wedding was amazed at how spacious and glamorous it was. Everything about the day was perfect and John and I were disappointed to see it go on Monday, we quite liked our “Garden room.”
Please pass on our thanks to all your lads who came, it was a pleasure making tea for them. I enclose a few photographs for you and if you ever need a recommendation please do not hesitate to contact us. Once again thank you for making my daughter’s day everything she dreamed of.
Elaine and John Turner, Finedon, Northamptonshire
Thank you very much indeed for all your hard work that went in to ensuring that our party last Saturday was such a success, it was the most wonderful evening. It helped that the weather was as near perfect as can be hoped for, the evening was faultless, we could not have wished for more.
We were so impressed with the quality of both service you provided and by just how hardworking and willing you and your team were.
Interestingly one of our guests, who is a very high powered international event organiser, commented that everything was faultless, well done you.
We cannot recommend you highly enough.
James & Elizabeth Saunders Watson
On behalf of Jamie and Oona, Maggie and myself, I would like to thank you and your team for the enormous contribution you made to a successful wedding day last Saturday.
When we specified the main marquee, together with the reception area and play area for children, little did we know that the weather would dictate that the whole event would be held in the marquee area. Despite wet weather and, on the wedding day, high winds the marquee was erected, fitted out and retained its pristine looks throughout the day.We were able to use the space flexibly, and through the evening the marquee took on a magical appearance as the `star spangled sky’ over the dance floor came into its own. Interestingly some of the photographs look as if the event is taking place outdoors under a star lit sky - magical!!
Finally, when we were on “come down” after the wedding weekend, your team appeared and disappeared promptly, leaving our property in its original condition.
Well done to all concerned.
Maggie and Mike Davies
Thank you again for the excellent service. The team putting up the marquee we used for our Daughter's wedding reception at Plum Park Hotel made the whole process seem easy, and gave us the piece of mind that we needed by putting up the marquee in plenty of time for us to finish setting up the wedding reception.
From the first meeting with D&D right through to the final stages of our Centenary Celebrations, we were guided expertly and wisely to make the right decisions and selections for our marquee requirements. The whole project could not have gone better and the two major events held in the marquee were a great success. There is no doubt for our next Centenary Celebrations D&D will be the first people we will call and for any major functions between now and then.

Hi Andrew – thanks for your email and apologies for the delay in responding, unfortunately I came down with the dreaded cold after the party!
The party was a huge success and everyone loved the set up, marquee, etc. It all worked out extremely well. Jay was extremely professional and very pleasant to deal with. In fact the housekeepers reported that all the set-up team had been very pleasant. I haven’t heard if there were any issues with the de-rig so I am assuming that everything went well there. Depending on the state of the grounds after the event, I have to tell you that Sarah and Paul enjoyed hosting the party enormously and were even talking about doing it again in the summer! So you may have a future client there.
The catering was done by the Head Chef from Glamorgan (who catered for the Ashes Test at Cardiff) – so the food was stunning. I do hope we have some pictures of the food on tables, etc. However, I haven’t seen any of the pictures yet but if we have some that are suitable for sharing I will certainly send them all along.
This was the first time I have ever ventured into this space – and based on the roaring success – I would certainly think about doing it again!
Many thanks for all your help.
Dear Andrew and Diana,
We would like to say a Big thank you for everything you did for us on our very special day, our day was perfect it was just what we wanted, a lot of that was down to you and professionalism and attention to detail you gave before the day.
Everyone commented on the marquee could not believe on what they saw, the heating was fantastic and everybody was saying how hot is was even when it was snowing outside. Could we also say a big thank you for all your attention to detail and the quality of the furniture you supplied. The toilet was a huge god sends and hit as well.
So overall our Renewal of wedding vows was fabulous and really would not have been the same without you. Could you also please thank you team for their hard work and punctuality even in very cold conditions, you left the garden just how you had found it and very tidy, you could hardly tell you had been here.
Many thanks again

Wedding Reception for 150 guests, Saturday 19th June 2010, Rockingham Castle, Corby
We had a wonderful day on Saturday and everything went smoothly and to plan.
We were very pleased with the marquee and indeed with all the planning with you beforehand. Thank you very much for working so hard on our behalf and for all your excellent service. I much appreciated how understanding you were of my ‘mother of the bride’ anxieties.We had several compliments on the marquee and we were very pleased to have the heater on a rather cool, but luckily dry, evening. We were also pleased with the larger dance floor and in having the extra space generally.
I also found Jamie (Jay) who set up the marquee very pleasant and helpful and the young man who knew about the microphones and managed to get them reset and working, the day before, was essential and prevented any hiccups on the day.
We will be seeing the full range of photos when Lizzie and Jon get back from honeymoon in 2-3 weeks and I will certainly let you have any pictures of the marquee.
Hope the rest of your weddings this summer go as smoothly as ours! Thank you and Diana again for everything.
PS The loos in the car park were a success and the owner, who came himself, very pleasant to deal with. Again you made a good choice for the supplier/sub contractor, thanks.
Marquee at Warkworth, 26th June 2010, Party for 60 guests.
Now that all the guests have gone home and I have a chance to catch up with things I would like to say thank you to D & D Marquee Hire and to your team in particular for giving us such good service at Warkworth over the last weekend in June.
Everything was just as we expected and the men who put it up and took it away were efficient and easy to deal with. Everyone thought it looked beautiful and the guests of honour (our daughter and son-in-law and my mother aged 90) were very happy with the lovely setting for their parties.
I am in no hurry to cook for a big party again but if I do I shall know who to come to for the marquee!
All the best

I would like to thank you for the excellent service you provided last Saturday for my daughter’s wedding.
The Marquee you provided was magnificent, a point repeated by many of our guests, as were the additional services such as the toilets and power supplies. I was particularly impressed with your team of men. They were efficient, courteous and helpful and survived on just the odd cup of tea!
I would not hesitate to use or recommend you in the future.
Wedding at Oundle on 24th July 2010
I've just realised that I didn't send you a thank you for the brilliant service you provided for our daughter's wedding on 24 July.
Everything went very well and the guys who came over and put up the marquee were brilliant! I only wish I'd known in advance that one of them had a birthday - I'd have made a cake!!
We were also at the wedding celebrations at Grange Farm, Barnwell recently and noticed it was your company who had put up their marquee! You obviously have a good name around this area!
Thanks again. I'll certainly recommend your company to folks in the future.

I hope that my daughter will be tying the knot in the not too distant future, and when this does happen, I will have no hesitation in asking you to be involved again.
Thank you once again for your involvement, and help in making such a happy and memorable occasion!

Hello Diana and Andrew
Thank you so much for being a great Marquee Hire company. Everything was great - the marquee was lovely. It was all fabulous. All of our guests were very impressed, and your guys who put it up and took it down were great - Jamie especially sang a guy called Jamie's praises, and I don't think it was just because they share the same name.
I work at the Open University and will gladly advertise you on our Internet site, which is our Virtual Notice board, so hope you get some business out of that.

Thanks for your letter, we did have the most fabulous day, guests couldn't believe their eyes and didn't stop commenting all day on how stunning the Marquee was. It created an amazing atmosphere and friends and family said they felt like they were in a hotel not in the middle of a field! It was like a wonderland with the fairy lights and couldn't have looked better. We are so happy and can't thank you and your team for such amazing effort and planning. We will forward on some pics as soon as i have some, friends are beginning to email me them now.
All the best in the future, and thank you again so so much :o)
Black Tie Dinner for 220 Seated Guests
Saturday 9th October 2010
Mixbury, Near Brackley, Northants
Marquee was supplied with all starlight ceiling, pin spot lighting and flat white walling with LED up lighters.
I just wanted to say a big thank you from the Collins family for your wonderful tent. It was the perfect size for 220 people and the dance floor (full all night) equally was exactly the right size.
Your team were charming, polite and so helpful and it was very good of you to add on the extra side to the middle of the tent, which made all the difference to the entrance,as well as making the floor safe, through to the Loos. (Through an outbuilding with a rotten/uneven floor) It was all done with minimum fuss and I really appreciated it, as I had not realised quite how stressful the run up to a party is.
I have had many lovely comments from my friends, all who said it was one of the best tents they have ever seen and I shall thoroughly recommend you to anyone who asks.

Just a quick thank you for the excellent service and beautiful marquee that we had from your company. We had about 130 guests celebrating a recent 50th for me, an impending 50th for my wife, and a silver wedding anniversary for both of us - to each other! ;-) From start to finish, the service form your staff was faultless. They were careful in all they did and left us with a fantastic looking marquee on the Thursday, and a perfect garden on the Monday.
I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone who asks, and you may be getting another call from us when (if!) my daughters decide to get married :-)
Many thanks again.

Other members of our family have used D&D before and we would not hesitate to recommend them.

Thank you so much for providing us with such fantastic service and marquee for our wedding day. The team were friendly and professional and coped very efficiently with some last minute changes.
The marquee looked absolutely gorgeous on the day - the perfect backdrop for a very happy day. We especially loved the roll up windows which meant we could enjoy the beautiful scenery during the day and when it rained in the evening all our guests were still able to enjoy the fireworks!
Thank you once again, please find attached some photos of the marquee.

It really was amazing and they could not have done a better job on site with the erection etc. George our photographer has some photos of the Marquee prior to people coming if you ever wanted them for your book?
Everything could not have gone more smoothly and the amount of praise the tent got was unreal so a huge thank you from us all and we look forward to seeing you soon.
With best wishes,
James and Katie
Wedding at Houghton Conquest, 3rd September 2011
Thank you - To Andrew, Diana and the Team
We just wanted to say thank you all so much for being part of our special day!
From the initial meeting right through to the taking down of the marquee we received a first class service.
Everyone commented on how beautiful the marquee looked, in fact many said it was the nicest marquee they had ever seen!
Jay and the team were brilliant ( and very patient) with the assembly and removal of the marquee. They certainly put our minds at rest!
We had the most amazing day, so thank you again for all your help in making it the day we had always wished for!

Hi Andrew and Diana,
We’re so sorry this email has been a long time coming; where does the time go!
We just wanted to put in writing how pleased we were with the marquee you provided us with on our wedding day, we received so many compliments and will certainly be recommending you to all our friends and family! Thank you in particular for the fantastic service we received from you both and of course the team setting up on the day, we couldn’t have asked for more. We never had to wait for an answer to any of our many questions!!! There are a couple of pictures attached to the email so you can see the finished result.
Thank you both again.

Dear Andrew and Team,
Just a quick note to send our Season's Greetings and thank you again for the outstanding marquee for the Wedding.
You all did such a great job and were great fun to have around in the run up.
The marquee was mind-blowing and epic - as was the party that followed - thank you so much!
All the best,
Katie and James

Dear D&D Marquee Hire,
We were delighted with the marquee and many of our guests mentioned it specifically in the letters we have received since the wedding. They loved the size but also the cleanliness of the tent and lining and the cream carpet, they also particularly liked the long tables which many said made it easier to speak to other guests. Another comment was about the clear windows which several people said they had never seen before.
From our point of view your chaps, led by the delightful Jay and Jamie, were superb in every respect. I am afraid I didn't meet them until Wednesday afternoon but they were always very helpful, courteous and attentive when I saw them. Andrew met my husband on Monday morning just to get things going. Thank you for this - it is reassuring to have an initial meeting. We were all here on Friday and again your chaps were extremely helpful, asking us if all was well, instructing us on how the generator and heaters worked, showing us carefully how to open the windows and even giving us a hand manoeuvring a tree into the reception marquee which was above and beyond the call of duty. I know my husband and I would have struggled with this! Our garden, which is very dear to us, was left completely unscathed by your lorries, vans and footsteps and we it will be at it's best as usual in June when we open. Again when the marquee was dismantled the greatest care was taken. I know the weather was on our side, as it was so dry, but we did really appreciate all the mens' efforts.
We were very lucky to have excellent people doing flowers, printing, singing, playing etc... and so we were overall absolutely delighted with the way the day went. We will e mail photos when we get to that stage.
Many many thanks once again.

Wedding reception at Rockingham Castle - 21st July 2012
Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful marquee you gave us on the 21st July at Rockingham. It was so lovely to come through the archway and see it on the lawn. Most guests couldn’t believe we had it put up just for the wedding as it felt so sturdy and permanent!
We couldn't have dreamed of a better venue and marquee, and your service throughout was also brilliant. Being able to meet up with you at Rockingham a few times really put our minds at rest.
So, thank you again for all your hard work and time.
All the best,
Rebecca and Perry Chambers-Clark
