“Many thanks to everyone who helped to make this a very special day – The Marsham Court Hotel and their super staff, The Forresters for the great presents and our lovely Father Christmas, Krazy Kev and his beautiful rabbit, Lucy and Charlotte from 4Com and volunteer helpers Brian, Anita and Avril.”
