I Just wanted to say a massive thank you from all of us at Wealden Works. We are so grateful for the large sum of money you have all been so busy raising. It does go a long way towards helping the wonderful young people of Wealden. Thank you for continually supporting us, turning up to all the graduations and even providing the entertainment.   Tora, Lisa Frances & Ethan x   Wealden Works

Hello Boys, I saw you on Saturday. I was the one who asked about the 8 string Uke.......

Ukes work so well with the double bass and the 8 strings and full vocals really fill out the sound. I was impressed with this......

Keep up the good work. My wife is organising a charity ball next May so we may well be in touch. Thanks, Paul Butler

Rog - you were fantastic!

 So sorry I missed you on Saturday as you packed away. Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the boys, for donating your time and supporting Raystede at our Christmas Fair. Each time I passed by I saw a lot of happy faces, public joining in and having a boogie.

Thank you again and hope to see you again in the summer.

 Cheers Donna


Hi Phill, I just wanted to drop you a quick line of thanks for last evening – we really appreciated Roger, Bob and yourself playing for us, it was very entertaining and so much fun!  I have had a steady stream of people visiting my office this morning to say how much they enjoyed the evening, which is lovely. I have let other developments in my team have your details –  hopefully you will get other business from it.  I am certain that my homeowners will be requesting a return visit later in the year! Anyway, many thanks again and good luck with your continued fund raising efforts – it is such a good thing that you do. Kind Regards Karen Evans, House Manager, Ridgeway Court.

"Happy new year to you all, and thank you so much for the great gig you put on for us at the High Rocks, we thoroughly enjoyed the show and the fact that so many joined in and had a sing along and a bit of a dance showed how much everyone enjoyed it.

who help young people find work or return to education.

A really good night, and you being there definitely made a difference, you know that now we're you're charity again next year, you've gotta come back and do it all over again. Roger loved it, and said he'd be back next year as well, and great to get a start with the fundraising. Thanks it really made a more relaxed and fun atmosphere." - Frances Conway (Wealden Works)
