Good evening Joshua,
Please find below, a draft of a letter that I wish to e-mail to Leisure Alliance PLC, and I would appreciate your advice on the wording of the letter etc as to whether it is acceptable and correct.

Dear Mr Hamilton
We are in receipt of your intimidating/threatening letter dated 12 March 2015, demanding we make a payment for annual subscription arrears and administration charges for Club Class Holidays Ltd.
We were advised in the year 2011 that Club Class Holidays Ltd had been placed in administration and subsequently ceased trading.
Upon receipt of your above letter, we made some investigations into Club Class Holidays Ltd, and discovered that a combined effort of The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and their Trading Standards Department, together with the Insolvency Service were successful in having Club Class holidays and various associated companies wound up in the High Court in London.
We have had confirmation from a legal team that Club Class Holidays Ltd were dissolved on 08 September 2009, this means that the company no longer exists, and your claim is invalid as you cannot collect monies on behalf of a company that no longer exists.
We therefore deny any indebtedness to Leisure Alliance and if Leisure Alliance believes that a debt is owed then we require you to provide us with a full set of documentation demonstrating how the debt falls due including details of any original contract, and any assignments of that contract in order that we can consider the matter further.
On checking our records it would appear that we made a payment of £55 by standing order in November 2009 to Sochalls, after Club Class Holidays Ltd had been dissolved, which Messrs Sochalls would have been aware of and should have refunded the monies back to us, but at this time, we shall not pursue the matter any further.
We trust this matter is now concluded and you will cease to look to us for any further payments.
Martin Elbrow Susan Elbrow
