Huddersfield Junior Football League
Many thanks once again for sorting the room for last night’s meeting. Nearly every seat was taken which shows how cramped the old venue must have been! I have had some really great comments from clubs about the venue and how much better it is
Holmfirth High School | Year 11 Prom
The kids loved it - really good - thank all your staff for their hospitality.
The headteacher said it was one of the best Prom's he had been to!!
Will be in touch for next year.
I just wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of all the family. The reception was perfect in every way. Please pass on our thanks to all the staff involved on the day.
Thanks again for all your help.
CKAM ‘Make it in Manufacturing’ Event
You have been an absolute pleasure to work with and thank you for your patience, reassurance and support!
The feedback from schools and manufacturers has been nothing but positive on all aspects of the day. We just managed the catering for 70 with nothing much wasted at the end so that was good. The team were absolutely brilliant and please do pass on my thanks to them all for their help in making it such a good event. We plan to do it all again in the Autumn of 2023 so plenty of time to plan! Errol Brown | Black Business Expo 2022 Thank you for all of your assistance in supporting us with hosting this event. A big thanks also to Jamie and the team who did a fantastic job on the day. Danny Martin | Eaton Smith Solicitors
It was my first time organising such a large event for my new employer, and I could not have asked for more from Nicola and her team. Every time I had a large request or the smallest query, Nicola was always on hand to sit down with me and talk me through the different options available. The catering staff were absolutely outstanding on the day of the event, welcoming and catering for 150 people with the highest professionalism and friendliness. The Revell Ward Suite at the John Smith’s Stadium is a fantastic venue for any function, big or small, and I will most certainly be holding any future events here – thank you Nicola and the team!
Dawn Owens | Reach PLC
I just wanted to say a huge, big thank you for looking after me and indeed all of our guests last night, the evening was just amazing. Please pass on my thanks to all of the staff who got us fed and watered at such a good pace.
Michelle Hodgson | Director of Huddersfield Literature Festival
Please thank the staff, especially Anthony, who were really helpful on the night. The cake was lovely!
Onita Harrison | Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce
Thank you for hosting the event and for you and your team’s hard work in bringing the event to a successful outcome. We’ve had lots of positive feedback, with many looking forward to KBC 2023. Please do pass on my sentiments to Ian and the team.
We and the students had a fantastic night last Friday, it really was a great night, thank you for all your help and support for the event. Thank you also to Jamie and the team for all their work on the night. I will definitely be in touch about arranging future events.
BOK Swimming club
Saturday was a roaring success, everyone had a wonderful time and exactly what the swimmers needed after a very difficult couple of years.
On behalf of BOK Swimming Club could you kindly pass on our thanks to:
The staff on the evening were absolutely brilliant (security and bar staff were very professional).
The food was delicious, lots of people commented on the quality, so big thankyou to the chefs/caterers.
The DJ was brilliant, playing appropriate songs which made for a lot of signing and dancing.
Massive thankyou to you for making the booking process really simple, and setting up the room, everything was spot on – brilliant job Nicola.
We will definitely be booking the room again, probably around the same time next year.
