“Thank you for all your good work on the Newark Wonderland shopping campaign. The campaign was very well received by councillors, businesses and members of the public. The partnership approach seemed to work particularly well. There are certainly some impressive statistics and public comments that prove the value of the campaign. I imagine it will be a contender for a PR award or two.”
