Hi Louise,

Thanks for your email.  Yes the party flowed perfectly and Mum & Dad had a wonderful time. The venue was perfect and every one commented on how lovely it was.

The food was so good and can you please thank the girls who made and served this.  They communicated with us at all times and the quality was excellent, so thanks.  

The photo booth was such a hit.  It was so funny!  If you ever need one for anyone they were 'photoboothexpress'.  It is about £300 but you get three hours, a book of all pictures and everyone gets a copy like passport pictures of their own too.  

Thank you again.  Please thank Trevor and the bar staff too for us.  It was all smooth, stress free and well organised.  Next party we will be in touch.

Hopefully not too soon, lol!

Good luck to you all. I had the opportunity of being involved in the project in my professional capacity at the very beginning and am very impressed by the dedication of those who have seen it through to completion.

Hi Louise

Just got round to saying a huge thank you for the brilliant hire of the Beeches. It's such a great venue and isleham is lucky to have such wonderful facilities.

A good example

My family recently organised a large 90th birthday party for friends and family. Our natural choice was the Maltings. However, when we compared the facilities and management of the Maltings and the Beeches at Isleham there was no comparison. Isleham is a modern hall with adequate parking. The entrance lobby is bright and inviting. The toilets are clean. The bar is a proper bar with all facilities, a range of beers on tap and a full range of other drinks. The bar staff were obliging and efficient. The drink prices were reasonable. We were able to make our arrangements with a knowledgeable manager who could make decisions without reference to a committee.

The fact that the price for hire was a third of the Maltings made the decision inevitable. There were two other events in the hall on the same day making it a vibrant community centre for Isleham. After a decade of abuse by the district council, The Maltings has been languishing in the hands of the city council for over a year.

I find it disappointing that some of the councillors responsible for this state of affairs got re-elected. The city council would do well to go and check out The Beeches at Isleham to see how it is done!

Great facility, I am looking to move to Isleham (ask a local how to pronounce it) and checked out The Beeches, outside Park is great our little girl loved it. Zip wire... Excellent side lime facilities when when the local team play football. Great evening classes too.  Simon Giles

Hi Louise

Just a note to say thank you to you and your colleagues for all your help on Saturday. Everyone was so helpful (even helping us tidy up allowing us a lay in the next day!) and the hall really worked so well. It couldn't have been better and a large part of that was the positive and helpful attitude of you and colleagues.

Hope you have a wonderful night with Back to the Eighties. .I have a spare neon tutu if you want to borrow anything?!!!
