To Whom It May Concern

 

We have had the pleasure of knowing the Atkinson family since 2000. We had Management Rights across the road from Bill and Gayle’s Management Rights for a couple of years and we developed a great relationship with them during that time.  

 

Once we sold out Management Rights and moved on our friendship continued even when we moved overseas to Hong Kong for a number of years.We are involved in Social groups of which Bill plays an integral part of the organisation. His interpersonal skills are amazing in whatever situation he is in.

 

He never ceases to amaze us with the communications he had with all people in different walks of life. His zest for life is an inspiration and his continued enthusiasm in all activities is a remarkable asset that draws people to enjoy his company.
