Just a quick note to say ‘Thank You’ for letting us use The Dockyard for our finishing venue today. Chatham was as splendid as ever despite the awful weather! Please send our gratitude to your hardworking staff who helped to direct the cars in, and to their parking places. Danny and Tom did a Stirling job at the gate and the gentleman whose name I’m sorry I’ve forgotten who helped park them up and who I later met in the gallery. They are a credit to you and I can’t give enough praise of their efforts in what we’re difficult conditions! Thank you once again. Until The Festival of Steam and Transport!
The visit was excellent. From start to finish, the organisation was second to none. Dealing with yourself in relation to the booking and catering organisation was completely hassle free. All our members have said how interesting the day was. The food was superb and the staff could not have been more helpful. The ropery tour was the last thing we did and it was a brilliant finale. In short it was one of the best visits we have been on. You could definitely show The National Trust and English Heritage a thing or two.
Thank you for all your help - we had a wonderful visit to the Dockyard today - everyone remarked on how much they had enjoyed it. We were a little late in arriving as the coach got stuck in traffic on its way to us so you will find a few slightly panicky messages from me on your answerphone where I was trying to let you know! All was well however as we were met by Teresa who quickly and calmly sorted out a slightly amended timetable for us whilst we relaxed with our tea and biscuits. She also did the coach tour around the site and the Call the Midwife tour and she really made both tours come alive for us with her tremendous knowledge and little anecdotes. It was clear that she loves her job. The buffet lunch was also exceptional. It was nice to be able to have the reserved space in the restaurant so we could eat together as a group, and everyone commented on the quality of the sandwiches. The catering staff were also really friendly and helpful. Finally, we were also "relieved" to find that the toilets were nice and clean and such a good idea to have them for ladies or gents! We would definitely recommend a visit to Chatham Historic Dockyard to others.
The visit was a great success. Everyone enjoyed themselves immensely and I have had 100% feedback. There is so much to explore and members got to see and explore their personal choices. One or two decided to sit down and sketch and paint and of course the weather was on our side. There were no negative comments at all. Provision for refreshments and lunches were enjoyed by all. The most important comment from our members related to all the staff at The Dockyard, without exception, which was how friendly and helpful everyone was, whether that was on the reception, on the various vessels or in the refreshment areas. So a big thank you to you all for making our visit a very enjoyable one.
