At Christmas we celebrated with Jane and David Hide as they retired from hosting for Abbey Communication. They really have been ideal hosts. Those of you who have stayed with Jane and David already know their hospitality was second to none. Jane’s fantastic cooking was always extremely popular with their guests and our course participants regularly commented on the couple’s rich conversation, generosity, and readiness to help and listen. Host families such as Jane and David really contribute to the success of Abbey Communication’s training and to the enriching experience of our course participants. We wish them the very best in their retirement and other projects.
