Dear Chris. It is a shame that you've felt it necessary to post this. I've only just seen it but it's extremely damaging to me. As you're aware I did apologise profusely for the workshop not going ahead (I had no other bookings for it and therefore decided to take up another commitment for that week). I sent you an email saying I needed to change the date to allow more time for others to book. Your statement that 'I did not even bother to tell you' is simply untrue - why say such a thing? As you're equally aware I never took payment or confirmed your booking and just wasn't aware that you'd booked a hotel - your contact was a long time previously and there had been no other contact between us since. You'll also recall that I sent you a list of local accommodation providers but you did not choose from this list but went with a chain hotel some distance away with an advance booking no refund policy. I could have secured you a refund from all of the local providers. It is harsh to infer about my being 'more than happy to take your money' - I never requested payment and even for the original place. It is also unfair to report the £159 cost. This was a brief 4 hour evening workshop for which you seemingly booked 3 days in a hotel. The dates that you booked did not even coincide with the date that you anticipated the workshop going ahead. I had mentioned Weds 10th Feb as most likely date but your hotel booking was 11th - 13th. You are also aware of the extensive email exchange between us about trying to get hotel costs back I find it such a shame that you felt it necessary to post such an unbalanced account with untrue statements and unfounded inferences.
