We just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all of the team of staff at Downing who made our party last Saturday such an enjoyable event. We were so impressed by Lorna, for whom nothing was too much trouble, and all of the catering crew who supplied us with a delicious meal and kept us in drinks all evening. The weather was extremely kind to us and our guests really enjoyed all that Downing has to offer.Jane Magowan Private Event
