"Just to say thank you very much for the kind invite to your Annual Gala. I really enjoyed myself and would like to congratulate the team for a wonderful occasion. I thought the venue, informal format, food etc. were all excellent. And as for the Raffle prizes, I have never seen so many, let alone win one. Oh, and I thought the speaker was excellent too – what an inspired choice. In terms of the participants it really is heartening to see so many successful businesses on our patch. I never failed to be amazed at the variety of things going on right on our doorstep.

Once again, Congratulations and well done on another very successful year. Have a lovely break at Christmas." - Saj Butt, 3B Systems Ltd, 13 December 2011 - 11:23 am

"Just a brief note to record, my personal thanks and that of my colleagues to everyone at the Chamber, for your help, support, co-operation and understanding throughout 2011. Without doubt thanks to your support Gresham have recorded an excellent year as a first time exporter. To have this recognised on Friday at the Annual Gala Luncheon was a great motivator and will I am sure help us do even better in 2012. I am pleased to tell you that the whole Company are very proud to have won this award which reflects the investment, hard work and effort made by the company and its staff.

“CONGRATULATIONS” The Annual event was as always well organised and attended thanks, to the hard work and effort put in by you all.

“Excellent Venue, Enjoyable Company, Good Food, Great Result” What else can one ask! Sadly I missed out on winning the batteries maybe next year.

Finally may I take this opportunity of Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Successful New Year." - Peter Dowdy, Gresham Office Furniture, 14 December 2011 - 10:16 am
