Further reactions at the end of the evenings included:
“They should do this more often and get out and about.”
“The evening was so well put together. It was a joy to be there. A good opportunity to talk to many attending too.”
“It was great, well done to all involved…just what we all needed to hear…forward, onward and get out there!”
