Beauty of Japan
Thanks for a great evening last Thursday, what a cheerful one it was, not only did we experience Japan with John and yourself but had lots of laughter along the way !  Programme planning is not for a few months but had many requests for another talk, will be in touch.

History of Cider
A short note to thank you once again for your super talk on Cider last evening.
You clearly have your research well organised and your visuals, complete with film, were very good.

Market Towns
Thank you so much for what was a most enthralling and entertaining talk describing what should be all to familiar to us about our local heritage, only to discover today that there is so much more to discover…..
I look forward very much to engaging you again at some point in the future.

History of Cider
A huge thank you for your wonderful presentation on Herefordshire’s Cider Making History which you kindly gave last week.  I am still receiving so much positive feedback about the whole morning – and not just the sampling!  Your expertise and knowledge came across so well and was greatly appreciated by our members, and your confident and amusing style was hugely enjoyed.  One man said that it was the best talk we’ve ever had!!

Amsterdam to Budapest
On behalf of our members who attended our February meeting at, I should like to thank you (and John for the IT input) very much for taking us on  such a fascinating and enjoyable “cruise”.
I think you’ve inspired several of us, including me, to try such a cruise or a similar one! I can see why they are so much more appealing than a sea cruise.

Market Towns
Very many thanks everyone really enjoyed the talk about  the market towns – something for the locals and for those of us who are ‘incomers’  even if we’ve been here a while!   Anyway, very enjoyable.  We are very keen on the idea that you might come back to speak to us next year and the talk  that you suggested to me before you left sounds really interesting – ‘Tracks of Africa’.

Half Timbered Herefordshire
Just a quick message to thank you for a very interesting presentation last night. Everyone enjoyed it and members are keen to have you back next year but I think we may have trouble agreeing on the subject!

Five Extra Ordinary Churches
A very interesting talk, which has inspired us to visit Kilpeck and Dore Abbey – when the sun comes out again.

Herefordshire Market Towns
Everyone said how much they enjoyed your talk last night.  It was very informative and even those who have lived here all their lives learnt something new. It sounds as though you are being kept very busy with your talks.  Your enthusiasm for your subject is evident and I really don’t know how you could improve your delivery as it’s so clear and the photographs were excellent.

Half Timbered Herefordshire
Thank you so much for an excellent talk last night, I hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we all did. A wonderful event in a fine timber framed building which was so appropriate.

Marches Tours & Talks
I am delighted to have the opportunity of recommending these wonderful tours. They are not only super in good weather but almost as enjoyable in the cold weather, as you can hop in and out of the car between showers.

“Black & White Villages Audio Tour”
A wonderfully animated way to treat my elderly relatives to the delights of Herefordshire. I followed the Audio Tour of the Black & White Village Trail which played from my car CD as we enjoyed the adventure. The historical notes informatively nestled the pretty villages into interesting context. Definitely recommend, especially as a treat for those less mobile, and with plenty of audio goodies to further explore on foot a wonderful experience for all.

“Black and White tour.”
This is brilliant for a day out. I used it while staying near Leominster. It’s great to listen to all the history as you drive along and then park up in the villages to have a look around and take photographs.. I incorporated a visit to Hergest Croft gardens which are beautiful (and allow dogs which was a bonus)
Would recommend these tours to anyone – money well spent. Enjoy!

“A nice way to spend a day!”

The 5 CD’s that we have used are professionally made, well researched and take you to some beautiful hidden treasures. We have lived in this area for 40+ years yet discovered so many new places, The historical facts bring the landscape to life. Well recommended.
