Hi Sharon,

Thank you so much for delivering such an excellent workshop on Humphry Davy's Poetry at Morpeth Library yesterday. It was a real pleasure to meet you in person after all our email correspondence and we were so pleased that the group gelled so well together and got such a lot out of the session.

We have received some really lovely comments form the participants and they very much appreciated your welcoming and inclusive approach which enabled everyone present to feel comfortable and happy to join in the discussion. I am sure Kate and I would agree with all the comments saying how much they learned during the session, it was all so interesting and the powerpoint slides really enhanced the experience. Many thanks to Kate for her technical management.
