Martin, me (Kate) and Jean had a great day out, it is always such a amazing learning experience, but also a relaxing one. We also attended a Spring Forage this year. Wouldn't be surprised if it becomes a biannual event! (October 2017 forager)

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and to all the suppliers for their wonderful goodies ... even the box itself is quite lovely... As a family, we're already big fans of Stokes and we've watched the Yum Yum Tree Fudge Company develop from very humble beginnings.... I look forward to growing the rocket and sunflower seeds and to sampling the damson wine. Also, I've not had a beeswax candle before and am intrigued to see how it burns ... and smells. This really is a super prize ... thank you so much ... Comelia Hepworth

As you know I was not at the Festival yesterday, but it sounds as though it was a HUGE SUCCESS. Well done to all your team, and you said you were going to turn it round and by goodness you certainly did. I am so sorry that Emma sold out of ice cream a bit early, but I think that lots of people sold out because it was so much more successful.

I just wanted to send a quick email to say congratulations on a great event yesterday. All the visitors to our stand we saying what a great day they were having. When you are ready to discuss our support for next year, do let me know. Philip Davies, Holmes & Hills LLP (Sponsors)
