I would like to thank you and the security staff at the SA Museum for making our Christmas Show a huge success. I have received nothing but positive feedback from staff and partners who attended. The service we received leading up to our function and on the night of our function was first class. All staff were very pleasant to deal with and were willing to assist when needed. It has been a pleasure working with you, and I look forward to working with you again in the future.
