Below is an email I received in November 2011.
Finally home in the USA, but I do miss England very much indeed.
This is the second time I have used your wonderful cab services. Last year in summer and once again this year.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you have done to help make things easier for me, during my stay in the UK.
Picking me up from Heathrow airport and driving me to Worthing, the one-day lovely trip to London and all the sightseeing that went with it, and last but not least my departure from Worthing towards France. The ride on the Eurostar, the arrival in France and the drive thereon towards Brussels - passing through Dunkirk and all those lovely French towns.
What can I say , you are indeed the perfect professional - always dependable, a very safe driver (by the way the car is so comfortable too)courteous in all your dealings, well - the whole works. I really appreciated your cab service and will always call upon you when I come to the UK for more trips.
I will also be sure to give your information to all my friends coming to England - so they too can enjoy the comfort and great cab services that you offer to your customers. With such service, your company will indeed go far, achieving superior ratings.
Take care, and once again thank you for everything.

Happy New Year Worthing! What an exciting year 2012 is going to be, with lots of events and attractions in the town. We have already started with the Ice Rink in Steyne Gardens proving to be huge fun. This initiative shows good partnership working with Worthing Borough Council and the Town Centre Initiative jointly funding the project. You still have time to beat the Mayors record of 12 minutes before she fell over, get your skates on before January 8th!!
2012 is Olympic year and Worthing has been included in the celebrations. The Olympic torch will pass through Worthing on Monday July 16 as the torch makes its way from Portsmouth to Brighton. The runners of the relay for the area will be revealed in the coming months. It is a huge honour that the torch is coming through the town, It will bring a sense of excitement about the Games to Worthing and it also celebrates all the great athletes we have here. I hope the whole of Worthing will come out to celebrate this event. Im calling to all the schools to let their children off for an hour on the day so they can come down and help cheer the torch along.
And dont forget The Queens Diamond Jubilee on June 2nd this year with lots of events and street parties planned all over the town. If you
havent already got involved, you still have time. The 16th June will see a Diamond Jubilee Celebration all along the promenade from Worthing pier to George v Ave, an event for the whole town to join in!!
Theres lots to look forward to and I hope everyone in the town has a very happy and prosperous new year!
