You say...

I am writing to thank you and your team at The Rufus Centre for all your help in making our evening with Gardeners Question Time such a success.

All of us who were involved including the BBC team, were most impressed with every aspect of the centre and especially the helpfulness of the staff, to whom we would ask you to pass on our sincere thanks.

The Rufus Centre is a venue we most certainly will be looking to use again in the future and in the meantime congratulate you on running a superb local facility.
