Dear Rowan,

Thanks very much to H J Burt for partnering with us again this year to promote our Big Picnic, which happened on Sunday.  People certainly noticed your boards and commented to me on what a good way they are of promoting the event. The weather was amazing and again we had an excellent turn out – I’ve since had some really positive feedback which is always encouraging!

 Finance wise we incurred quite a few costs this year so have only just broken even, so your contribution has turned out to be pretty important too

Please Note: This will be withheld if any relevant person (including any guarantor(s)) withdraw from the tenancy, fail a Right-to-Rent check, provide materially significant false or misleading information, or fail to sign their tenancy agreement (and / or Deed of Guarantee) within 15 calendar days (or other Deadline for Agreement as mutually agreed in writing).
