Thank you Afare so much for the super meal we all enjoyed last night. The food was great, there was plenty of it, it was hot, and everyone really enjoyed it.

Your girls were courteous and punctual and very efficient.

Everything was left clean and tidy at the end of the evening and one wouldn’t have known they had even been, so again, a big thank you.
