50th Birthday party - Wroughton, Jan 2011

Dear Jellies,

Just to say:

My 50th birthday party was everything I had hoped it would be. Jellied Reels proved to be a great choice! My purist folk fan friends appreciated your "twist" on ceilidh and the old rockers were in their element. My guests were aged 6 - 76 and everyone was able to join in because the pace was relaxed and the steps were easy. I liked the fact that you came down from the stage to give clear instructions and demonstrations. I feel I got excellent value for money, something quite different and have had lots of messages and comments from friends to say how much they enjoyed it.

I know that it may have seemed that I was being overambitious in inviting two bands and wanting the CD playing time too. However, our long discussions and careful planning of the timing and processes involved appeared to pay off and I thought the evening ran very smoothly. Thank you for all your cooperation with me, throughout, and with the Wroughton Silver Band.

I arrived at work this morning to find that people who hadn't been able to make it had already been told what a great night they had missed. I had a fabulous time, and so did my guests. Thank you for your part in that. I think I need to invent a reason to ask you to play for me again!

I hope I managed to look after the band ok and that you got sufficient food/space etc.

Very best wishes

Diana (Birthday girl)
