Sarah T, 1 year ago

Dear Eloise Thank you!! You were fabulous and completely made the evening perfect. You have a fantastic talent combined with a wonderful personality. I’m sorry we didn’t help you to load your car and say a proper goodbye- you started the dancing off so well that we just got carried away I hope that your journey home was smooth and that you managed a little New Year celebration yourself! Yours with sore feet but a big smile Sarah
