Greetings from the Northland Vintage Car Club. Recently our club held a 50 year celebration at which your firm, were the caterers. The event we feel was a great success due mainly to the hard work and organising skills of our club captain Lyn Wrack. The success of the event we feel was also enhanced by the high quality of food that was served and the efforts of your hard working staff. On behalf of our club I would like to thank-you for helping make the event the success that it was.

Thank you very very much for your wonderful catering & hospitality on April 24th when we celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary. Several of our guests have called to say how impressed they were with your excellent catering & some propose to bring their own group celebrations to you as a result. We celebrated with our entire family & several friends in Noosa on May 8th. Although it was a great occasion the catering was not a patch on yours. Thank you so much. With best wishes.

On behalf of the Management Committee of the Eagles Golfing Society of Northland I wish to thank A’Fare for your generous support of our National Convention held in Whangarei last week. Your catering went down “big time” at the ASB Stadium, nothing but praise for the quality, quantity and presentation. Your staff were excellent. The event was a great success and your efforts were much appreciated. Once again, many thanks.
