“I am just writing to say thank you very much for your very prompt delivery of my bread and cake mix order. I placed my order on Wednesday and as if by magic it arrived this morning. You can't beat that for efficiency. Also I would like to say that I find it always a pleasure to speak to you both when it comes to ordering my next batch of mixes, but even though I now have to pay delivery it is worthwhile just to be in contact with you both. It is very refreshing to speak to people like yourselves who are always friendly, helpful and very efficient. Thank you once again and I look forward to the next set of recipe ideas and information from the club.”Anne Phillimore
