We booked Harry for a retirement reception for a member of our team who had 44 years service in the NHS.

Harry did a fantastic job, and stayed to be photographed for the Trust news letter, outstanding.

From the start of the booking , always good communication, arrived on time and played excellent.

THANK YOU HARRY.
