Reviews

Thank you to the team for another hugely successful 'Celebrate Africa' - you guys really are the A – Team! Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!

BVA has again run a successful event at Baden-Powell House, so we send many thanks to all in your tem who helped this happen. We also got favourable reviews for the catering, so please do relay that. Special thanks go to Adrian, who as always, was a stalwart and was able to meet all our needs swiftly, efficiently and kindly. Once again, thank you all for helping us to run a successful meeting.

I would like to thank you for all your help with the preparations prior to our visit last December. Adrian and Gomes were great as usual and assisted quickly and effectively with all enquiries. Please pass on our thanks to them both.

There are not many spaces in central London big enough for a symphony orchestra, so it is great to be able to use Baden-Powell House on a regular basis. Especially since the people we deal with there are so helpful and accommodating.

Everybody really loved the weekend! The whole thing worked so well and the comments from people were so positive. Everyone wants to do it all again next year! Thank you so much for your help and support and for having such a superb venue.

I first met my husband at Baden Powell House in 1966. He had brought up to London the Dartmouth group of Deep Sea Scouts to meet with us Sea Rangers..We married in 1969. Can we share in your 50th year celebration? 07770 381911 (mobile)
