I was recently at a WTC conference at Telford Campus. This is the second time that I have been to one of these and both times I have been blown away by the service and the staff at the site. I just wanted to write to you to thank you for this. The catering staff were especially always helpful and gave the impression that nothing was too much trouble. Likewise, the staff on reception were helpful and patient. Conference Attendee, Westminster Theological Centre
