This marks a huge improvement from last year and a sign that the business is growing in the right direction.

Hello, John,
I'm afraid I won't be able tohelp you to do the report for the holiday park.Something very important has just come upand for the next two weeks I'm going to have to focus all my attention on it.
Have you thought about asking Karen Taylor to help? She has experience of writing these types of reports.
Sorry again for not being able to help you.
