Thank you message from Ashley, Site Manager - "I just wanted to thank you all for the help, co-operation and friendship during the project. Everyone has been so friendly and welcoming to both myself and Karen. We still have our meal to look forward to with the voucher you kindly gave me. We will pop in on a Sunday now and again to keep in touch with all you all. This has been a very special project and it has been a pleasure to have helped it come to fruition." Ashley
