    As Chairman of Eastern Airways, I first became acquainted with George, his lovely family and their successful business around March 2005. Since that time not only has our business relationship grown in success, but more than that, our personal friendships have become something special. George has the charisma and business etiquette that has made his business what it is today, highly efficient and hence successful. Thank you George for your efforts on behalf of Eastern.

    Mr. Bryan Huxford, Chairman, Eastern Airways

    Congratulations to you and your team for Saturday's event at Fyvie Castle. We arrived around 5pm and didn't stop jiggin' till we left! The entertainment was spot on the whole day. Then to top it all the fireworks display, with the perfect weather and a glorious back-drop, it felt like the fireworks were close enough to touch. The day would not have been complete without us 40+ revellers getting our faces painted for the occasion.

    Over 19 years of co-ordinating Emmerdale Events, I have never worked with such an organised calm and efficient event management team as George and Jenny Walker. The Emmerdale Extravaganza, under their leadership, has grown consistently over 8 years to be one of Scotland's largest fun filled and most profitable events. If you are thinking of doing it, then do it with George and Jenny - you can't beat them.

    Dancers from the Gordon School of Dance, Montrose are always delighted to be part of the exciting events organised by George Walker. The most memorable being the Queens 80th birthday outdoor celebration at Balmoral Castle - how George managed to create the "Brigadoon" atmosphere in the evening after a day of torrential rain says it all.
