"We have just had a whole group of staff and children arriving back from the Village Cinema buzzing! They LOVED every moment of the experience and are so thankful. A mother told me she had never thought she would have ever have got to take her son to a cinema and he absolutely loved it. So thank you very much for giving our children such a wonderful experience. They said the whole experience and you hosting it was superb. Thank you"
