"Probably the best Morris weekend I've ever been on" 
Mel from Foxs

"Extremely impressed with all the organisation. Absolutely brilliant weekend and great location."
Maybe Morris

"We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We had enough dancing, good food, good beer and wonderful company. Exmoor surpassed any weekend we have been on for years. Everyone has worked incredibly hard, everything seemed to run like my digital watch. We thank everyone, naming no names, because you all deserve every possible credit going…. the masterstroke on the camping front was the showers. Easily the best portable showers we have ever seen, hot, comfortable and decent water pressure … The pub was splendid, a lovely choice of beers, and many of the side enjoyed the splendid food on offer" 
Pink Bunnies from Hell

"We wanted to write and say thank you to all the team we know how hard you must have worked to pull it all together. It was well worth it as we certainly had a fantastic weekend. So thanks to you all you did a great job and are a great bunch of people" 
Therese (Squire), The Powderkegs

"Wow what a weekend we all had, great organisation, great company, great location, no complaints what so ever, it was fab!! Thank you and your team very very much, we had the best of times. Love to you all" 
Pat, Stone the Crows.

"On behalf of Wicket Brood I would like to say a big thank you to you and the EBM side for the truly wonderful weekend. The organisation was superb. Just to have organised one part of the event would have been enough for most people but there was so much more. You definitely went the extra mile to ensure that all the events went smoothly. We felt so well looked after and there was never a time when we didn't know what we were doing." 
Sylvia, Squire - Wicket Brood

"Quite overwhelmed with the work, effort and energy put into the weekend. Great organisation from start to finish, including the tourist information from Nigel, which kept us entertained for the whole coach journey! We thoroughly enjoyed every part of the celebrations and everyone who came along from Foxs has expressed their gratitude to yourselves and all those involved." 
Andrew & Carol - Foxs
