When we got to the hotel we were very tired and went to bed early. When we walked out the next day, we couldn't believe our eyes. The place was so nice, covered with flowers, everyone so friendly. To be honest, it was one of the best weeks we've had, even on the Wednesday afternoon at the small Bingo up the alley opposite a place called Focus in the High Street [possibly Tarry Lane opposite Co-op Local - GKS] We didn't see a policeman or see anything vandalised all the time we were there. You must be very proud of your town and how clean it's kept. It's a pleasure to visit such a nice place and meet nice people.
