Just a short note to thank all the people who had created the 2008 Olympics. We spent a fabulous day on Tuesday exploring your village and eating delicious cakes and burning them off on safari. My two daughters and I enjoyed the whole day and were most impressed by the Boxing Kangaroo and synchronised dolphins. We will make sure we attend next yearís event. Once again thanks to all involved. Catherine, Heather & Lily Burscough
