I write to thank you and tell you how much my group enjoyed The Argus Achievement Awards.

The work that must have gone into organising such a wonderful event was first class.

Everything from the welcome at the door by the staff, the decorations, the pens on our chairs, the meal so promptly served, the photographer and not least the friendliness of Nick Owen, went to make such a wonderful and memorable evening.

Although we didn't win our award, the evening was a complete success and I can only say what a privilege it was to be at such a gathering, meeting so many local and gallant heroes.

Thank you very much.
