Richard Hughes, Chief Executive of The Assembly House, said: “The whole crew had so much fun when they toured with us and Grace and Ainsley were absolutely lovely guests whose enthusiasm for what we do was truly heartwarming.

“They were both really stuck, whether it was learning how we serve up to 350 afternoon teas a day or how we clean the dozens of chandeliers in the building, and we were sorry to see them go.”
