A huge thanks for Saturday and I really hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. The final numbers for the day, according to STEAM, were 2833 which shows a real appetite for these events. I was really impressed with what you offered and the flexibility in helping me out with last minute problems, including running the fashion show!
