You said, we did...
“You said “The temperature in the conference room was stifling and it seemed to get hotter throughout the day” and “The temperature in the Room was very hot – we had to keep the door open, which was not ideal”. In April 2019 we purchased and installed a new heating/cooling system in the conference room and this allows customers to adjust the room temperature themselves as and when required.”
