Background image indicating quote

Thanks so much for all your hard work and support in Spain. It was a great pleasure to meet you and I know that the media will remember for a very long time (as will I) those fencing battles in the courtyard. Superb. Your enthusiasm and eloquence ensured that everybody got maximum enjoyment out of the encounter with a new sport. I have since been inspired to watch some of those YouTube fencing clips which you suggested. Amazing stuff."
