  • "To Reeds River Cruises, Now the dust has settled, I want to say a huge thank you to all of you for your hard work and commitment in making the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant a fantastic success. This project has been vast not only in terms of the event footprint but also in terms of the public communications, marketing, PR, fundraising, commercial and supporting services from the authorities and I know that this has taken a huge amount of time dedication to get agreement from everyone. It has been challenging at times but I feel that we have tackled everything head on and it is good to see that we are still smiling post 3rd June. What’s more if we do it again we have the blueprint to work from! It has been great having you all as part of the team and I hope you have enjoyed the project and are proud of the result. No doubt our paths will cross in the future and I look forward to seeing you all soon. "

  • "Dear Mr Reed, I wanted to write and thank you for taking part in the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant – a spectacle which I imagine was the most remarkable the Thames has ever seen. I have no doubt that the pageant will go down in history. Not only was it a remarkable spectacle, it was the central event in celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and only the second time such celebrations have taken place in this country. In spite of the weather, the team which organised the Pageant were, I hope you will agree an enthusiastic and highly skilled group. Even with all their experience, they had never been presented with a project of this scale and complexity. I hope that you feel they deserved all our gratitude, but I especially wanted to thank you for taking part in such a happy and constructive spirit. I so much enjoyed meeting some of the participants in the days preceding the Pageant and witnessing that spirit myself. The Queen has already told me how much she enjoyed the day and appreciated the efferts of everyone who took part and I hope that ou will remember the event with as much pleasure as all of us in the team who organised it. Everyone on the Pageant team is immensely grateful to yo and your crew for joining in and being a part of History. "

    Yours Sincerely, Marquess of Salisbury, Chairman of the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant
