TESTIMONIALS


We are always delighted to receive comments from our members and their guests; here is a selection of what they have to say about us:

"I could not go to bed without thanking you most sincerely for guiding me towards Lin and Ian Luder to have my photograph taken with them.  I owe them a HUGE debt because they encouraged me to pursue my love of the City of London and, as our guest speaker said, there is always somebody who has helped us along life's highway. Once again you and Judith have provided Guild members with an unforgettable evening.  The Guild is getting stronger and stronger - all thanks to yourselves. I sat next to some amazing guests and members with such interesting stories to tell.  The food, as usual, was superb, the waitresses/waiters were excellent, the orchestra their usual high quality of music, the amusing speeches,  I could go on and on ........ etc.  Thanks again to you and Judith for arranging all of this." - Miss V.H.
