Hi, just wanted to say thank you for Woody’s party last Saturday it was brilliant and all of you at CSMEE were so kind and patient with us. Everyone who came along said how it was the best party they’ve been to.

I just wanted to thank you and all your fellow enthusiasts for providing such an excellent afternoon for my family.
Even the sceptical teenagers really had a good time ! People who only live down the road and regularly walk the path behind your site didn’t know you are there….what a well kept secret.
What I particularly liked was that it was so commercially free… no advertising or selling of pencils or ice creams! Just right for my liking (May 2023)
