Feedback received following visit to Probus Club of Frenchay in March 2016
The content and material used in the presentation was excellent and was exactly as requested. The quality of the presenter could not be bettered and our members found if both informative and entertaining.
The subject of senior safety is an important, but often overlooked aspect of personal safety and this was presented in a very professional way.
We would highly recommend this presentation to other groups"

E-mail from Severnsiders Dining Club - Visited by Public Presentation Team in Oct 2016
Just a quick note of thanks for visiting Severnsiders last night, along with Rachael, to give your talk. As I had anticipated it created a lot of interest and was much appreciated by our members. One accurate measure of the interest in a talk is the volume of follow on questions and comments and last night we heard a great many of both.
Thanks again for making it an excellent evening.

E-mail received from the Henleaze Townswomens Guild (Senior Safe Driving) - Visited by the SCLT Public Presentation Team in May 2017
I'm responding to your e-mail requesting feed back on Mr Ashley Jones' presentation to the Henleaze (evening) Townswomen's Guild. I've spoken to a number of our members about it and their consistent response was that this was an outstanding presentation. The advice Ashley gave about safe driving was excellent. Important points were clearly and concisely made. The videos from dash cams illustrated these points excellently. We couldn't think of any way of improving the presentation, which most certainly is useful and beneficial to older drivers.
Some members would like other presentations from the SCLT.
with good wishes,
E-mail received from the Evercreech Friendship Club (The Nobel Prize) - Visited by the SCLT Public Presentation Team in May 2017
To all at the Senior Citizen Liaison Team
Thank you for a very interesting and polished "Nobel Peace Prize" presentation. It was much appreciated by all members. The presentation was excellent, with graphics and sound. I know we all went away with much more background knowledge about Alfred Nobel and the Prize itself, what an interesting life.
Perhaps we could call again on the services of SCLT in 2018.
The magazine, "Senior Siren" has been expertly put together with many stories and features close to home, and a timely reminder in this day and age of the various scams. Each member I know appreciated that extra offering from the SCLT team.
Thank you again Ash
Best regards Edward Porter
Chairman Evercreech Friendship Club

"Certainly one of the best presentations we have ever had, I learned so much"
"I was sorry it was all over - I could have listened to the presenter all night"
" Had no idea that a man, such as BIll Slim came from Bristol. It was a real pleasure to learn about his remarkable life tonight"
"If we had a speaker like that every week, we would have twice as many members!"
E-mail received from Wrington Vale Rotary Club (Uncle Bill: Britain's Forgotten Hero) - Visited by the SCLT Public Presentation Team in May 2017
I have received some very favourable comments regarding your presentation to Wrington Vale Rotary Club last week. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole presentation and I know I was certainly not alone.
I will keep you on my radar screen and after a reasoable time hope we can entice you or a colleague to come and give us another presentation. If you do have any new subjects which you think may be of interest to our members please let me know.

"A truly fascinating and unusual presentation"

E-mail feedback received from Weston-super-Mare Ladies Tangent Club (Senior Safety Presentation) - Visited by the SCLT Public Presentation Team in Oct 2017
Thank you so much for joining Weston-super-Mare Tangent and 41 Club last night and giving us such an excellent and informative talk.
As I said last night, we are so lucky to have a charity like yours in our area with such dedicated and personable speakers.
I feel quite sure that our members went away last night much better informed and better equipped to deal with difficult situations.
We are also enjoying the news letter, and one of our lady members has already told me that she is going to try the recipe at the weekend.
Many thanks once again.
Yours in Friendship

Audience feedback received from Taunton Orchard Ladies Probus Club (British Honours Presentation) - Visited by the SCLT Public Presentation Team in Feb 2018
"I have been a university lecturer in nursing and midwifery for many years and that was a truly well executed presentation - congratulations!"
"What a wonderful and exceptionally informative presentation - I have learned so much today"
" I thought I had a a fairly good idea of the subject, but now all the blanks have been filled in and the honours system has been demystified for us all"
Audience feedback received from Taunton Somerton Family History (Uncle Bill Presentation) - Visited by the SCLT Public Presentation Team in July 2018
Thank you for an excellent talk last night. Lots of people knew nothing about the Burma campaign and were interested to learn about Slim's life. He was given an almost impossible task to pull together a defeated army, the supply situation was very difficult and inadequate – and they got very little publicity or appreciation. The presentation was very expertly made and the delivery was just right for that audience.
I will mention your SCLT talks to the organisers of our local U3A because I think they would be good for a monthly meeting.
Thank you again,
