Everyone was so helpful to them. They really enjoyed their time and their confidence grew in that short time. So I want you to know that they say thank you to you all. I appreciate everyone was busy but they went the extra mile to make it a special time. Lovely memories made that will they will talk about for a long time. Thank you."

You bring joy to so many kids (and grown up kids like me) and I'm not sure if anyone thanks you for it very often - so in case they don't, thank you, thank you, we really can't wait! All the best to you and yours, Lydia."

"We made it to your fair this afternoon and your guys didnít disappoint us!! We all had a great time a huge and very special thank you for your very generous free ride passesÖ. They extended our visit and my little guy was thrilled to be allowed to ride the Yeti another time!! Thank you so much we will definitely be visiting again the next time you are local to us! Take care and stay until then, Rebecca"

"I had to come here again to comment because I'm ever so grateful for the kindness, effort and care my daughter amiyah was given again today on our visit to the fair. She has disabilities which cause alot of problems for her, but everyone we came into contact with at the fair went above and beyond to make us both feel safe. A massive thank you to the 2 girls on the harness trampolines, I cannot thank you enough for taking care of her today and making sure she was happy and comfortable and just having the best time while doing it.. I understand people have been put off by prices this year, but I'd pay double what I did to see the smiles on my daughters face. She isn't allowed to theme parks so to be able to have this right on our doorstep meant the world to us. Your staff are incredible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Charlotte (Eastleigh)"

June 23, 2021: "Good morning. I brought my son to your fair last Saturday and he adored itÖ he didnít want to leave! He has been promised that if he was a very good boy all week snd tried really hard at school that we would come back on Friday afternoon. Obviously the weather today is very different than last weekend!! I donít want to bring him and then for him to be devastated if youíre not able to operate under these weather conditions, so I thought I would ask you firstÖ. Are you still going to be opening up at 5pm today please?? My son has ADHD and autism which make it very difficult for him to understand some situations and to deal with them when circumstances change and things arenít as he was expecting them to be. I want to minimise any stress/anxiety for him so thought It was best to ask you before coming!! Please come back to me when you can. Many thanks and have a great day, Rebecca"

Our response: Thanks for your kind message & glad your son enjoyed his time at the fair. Weather looking brighter tomorrow so hopefully youíll be able to make it then. Any problems please get back to me. Thx again Sharon

"Hi Charmaine - I visited Stevens fair in Corby this afternoon with my nephew as we do every year. The difference this year was that he wanted to go on the bigger rides, I was dreading this as I am a wimp! However, we decided on the waltzers first and I had my head tucked down the entire time!I was amazed that not one, but two of the lads working the ride asked if I was ok and did we want spun round or not. I wanted to let you know that it made my day that they were so considerate and compassionate. It also made my nephew's day that I was so scared! Hopefully you can pass this on to the ride's owner - they have great staff! Thanks again Anne"

"Hello Charmaine,

I'm really pleased to have heard nothing adverse and glad that you have had a good run here too, the event is popular as ever and is a major attraction so I would be happy for you to return next year.

Kind regards William

"Hi Charmaine,

I just wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thank you to you and all the team that put the funfair on this year. I can't tell you how much positive feedback we had back on your rides and the overall appearance.

Despite the weather we had a record year and have made over 20k profit for charity and I'm really glad we got to meet and work together on this event.

Thank you again for all your efforts into this year it really made such a difference!

Theresa Ball

"Good afternoon Charmaine,

Thank you for the opportunity regarding hiring the Twister, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and the team for the support you have given us this year, sometimes at short notice.

Many thanks

Operations Manager
Butlins Skyline Ltd, Bognor Regis"

Sport and Recreation Officer, Corby District Council, CORBY:

"I would whole heartedly support that Stevens FunFair in its fifty year history of visiting Corby has been an ambassador for the Showmanís Guild. In all respects a good neighbour, aware of the difficulties both of ground maintenance staff and local residents, the management of the fair have always treated this as a priority. The community appreciates the visit of the Fair especially the free special needs session held for school children. All the Fair people ensure the children are well catered for and get an opportunity to go on rides they would not be able to access during normal public sessions."

Chesham Town Clerk & Councillor, Chesham Town Council, CHESHAM:

"I am pleased to say that Stevens Amusements were a pleasure to work with. The fees were paid promptly in advance and all correct paperwork was provided for inspection. During the first week-end, a couple of local residents complained about the level of noise but this was quickly rectified by Mrs Stevens to such a degree that both residents later thanked the Council for a peaceful second week-end. At the end of the fair, the operators departed promptly and left the site in a clean and tidy state. Perhaps most importantly however, the Council actually received compliments rather than complaints in respect of the fair. We received letters and phone-calls congratulating the Council both on the vibrancy and variety of the fair and on the courtesy of the operators themselves."

Support Officer, Chelmsford Borough Council, CHELMSFORD:

"I am pleased to confirm that Stevens Fun-Fair have visited Central Park, Chelmsford for many years and have always provided a satisfactory funfair. AU fees have always been paid on time and any problem however small has been dealt with promptly. I have never encountered any Health and Safety Issue. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to you."

Councillor, Adur District Council, SOUTH WICK:

"I have been asked by several residents to express their thanks to you and your colleagues for this yearís fair. Whilst a few may complain you should be assured that many residents enjoy the Ďtraditionalí fair, long may you continue."
