"Hello Katie,I hope that you have managed to recover from doing your chocolate workshop with our Beaver group.It was a huge hit with all of those present so i would like to pass on a huge thank you for all of your hard work that evening. I am fully aware of how loud and how much work it takes with a group of young boisterous children so I take my hat of to you for doing what you do.Once again thank you so much for a wonderful evening.
