Low Commission

The South of England Agricultural Society - Patron: Her Majesty the Queen

From the South of England - Agricultural Society

Dear Vernon, I write to thank you most sincerely for carrying out the valuation of the society's trophies during the South of England show.

Not only was this a considerable amount of work both in research and in valuing each of the trophies, but you operated in a very confined space where the trophies are displayed in the members pavilion. A challenge in more ways than one!

We ;are most appreciative of your expertise in valuing each trophy and for the detailed valuation documents which describe each trophy with weight and value.

We note that you have calculated the revised valuation figures realistically allowing for fluctuation for the next 10 year period.

Vernon, we are most grateful to you for all your help and assistance and for the professional manner in which you have carried out this task.

With Kind Regards
Your sincerely 
Deborah J Barber (MBE)
