What do people say about us?



"Having said that it would never have been as enjoyable had your army of volunteers not been so energetic, friendly & motivating throughout the 3 days. I remember thinking they were like lemmings and just popped up when you desperately needed a lift. (except for the photographer who seemed to have a knack of catching you at your worst moment)"
