They were all very impressed with your showroom and loved learning how baskets are created.
Your talk was very well received and enjoyed by our members.
I would like to thank you for the wonderful basket you donated to us. It was kind of you and ws very much appreciated.
With kind regards and many thanks,

E Roon , Scotland
You lovely people, thank you so much! When I ordered our replacement cushions for our patio suite, we knew how late we had left it and had absolutely no expectation that we would have them for our Jubilee celebration. Well, imagine our surprise and delight when a courier ( who was also lovely- both polite and very helpful) appeared with two huge black parcels - our cushions. What a fantastic service. If there were more companies like yours, this country would not be in its current mess. I am tempted to say, on this very special weekend, that you exhibit similar qualities of service and dedication as we have had from the Queen for the past 60 years (though, I assume, that none of you are 86 years old)! Flowery compliments aside, we are very pleased indeed and the suite looks like new again. Thank you.

We had a really enjoyable time. From the moment we walked and Gill was so welcoming and friendly we felt at ease and relaxed.
The basket making course was very informative and interesting. Ken is very patient and encouraging and tells so many fascinating tales we were entertained the whole time. Robert was so helpful and kept his eye on us ready to help us out if needed. And Carol....what can I say? She thoroughly added to the ambiance and experience.
I can only thank you all for such an interesting, instructive and enjoyable day and for the tea, coffee, biscuits and hospitality in general.
We are practicing our new skills so be warned we will be back when we get stuck, which won't be long!

"Dear Mrs Johnson, I felt I must write to you and say many thanks for the lovely visit to your shop. It was so unexpected 'tea & cake' and the chat with the members of the firm. All because 40 years ago I bought several lots of shopping baskets, and went to the chicken shed to collect them. Today I bought a laundry basket which will have a special memory in my heart. I will always remember my visit to J.Johnson & Son. Thank you again it was so nice meeting you."

It is with great pleasure that I passed on details of your business to The Associate Parliamentary Manufacturing Group (APMG) recently, informing them of the wonderful work that you do inside my constituency.
The APMG exists to 'encourage the exchange of knowledge and understanding between Parliament and the manufacturing industries, helping to raise the profile of manufacturing both inside and outside of Parliament' and I was asked to forward details of a business in my own constituency for the site.
I recalled my visit to J Johnson & Son and felt that the company deserved the chance to have some recognition for the exciting and unique work that it does. Below is a copy of the statement used,
A strong family business creating all kinds of quality basket wear using traditional methods passed down for generations. JJohnson & Son's methods haven't changed over the years & the company even provide demonstrations for anyone interested in the craft of basket making and weaving.
I was extremely proud to be able to pass on details of such a wonderful company and I wanted to inform you of your place on the site which can be viewed here;
With very best wishes as ever,
