Thanking you all for an enjoyable day, all you hard work is greatly appreciated.


Many Thanks for organising a fantastic event. It was great day…..


Our heartiest congratulations to you all for a great Creswalk 2007. Your professional organisation , friendly and courteous reception made this an enjoyable event and we look forward to the next one.


It was a great day , had a lot of fun and  a flawless event. Thanks for everything. Congratulations to the Crescents team for the great job.


As-salamu alaykum. Well done today on an excellent event. This is actually the first year that I have joined the Crestwalk. I thought it was a great day!


Congratulations to all the crew on another wonderful Creswalk. You guys did a great job again, and it's good to see you not resting on your laurels, but adding things like the Tug-o-war which proved to be very popular. There were many first timers with us today and you can judge for yourself how the event went by their reactions. After spending more than an hour convincing one family to come, they had a ball, and have already asked me to book them for next year. Another is sorry that they have not been more involved in the community previously, and have therefore missed the last 3 years of Creswalk, but are already eagerly awaiting next years. And another was surprised to see such little cultural diversity in the attendees, and could not believe that it wasn't supported more by the wider Muslim community.


Congratulations on a very well organise and fun Creswalk. I feel a lot fitter tonight. Well done!!!


And the Smile that Surely Says It All!
