A true representation

My neighbour was set on the shutters that they wanted Winchester Blinds to fit for them. They provided a helpful, and professional service and the shutters look brilliant from out the front of the house. My partner had a nose on the company's website and the previous work they have done and the website is a true reflexion of the outstanding work that they do.

Pride and joy

My sister bought an aga after saving for quite some time to buy one. She really enjoys cooking with it and it is her new pride and joy. She will only give it a professional clean because she wants it to last her for her many more years of cooking and entertaining. She's so proud of it and since getting in Mrs Ovens to do the job, she's now even more pleased with it! It really is the focal point of her kitchen and my sister has fallen in love with it all over again!

Restoring to formal glory

My friend was working on a restoration project and needed to have a company that was understanding and sympathetic to the needs of the building. It was an old historic building that needed much renovation but particularly to restore to its formal glory! She contacted Sash Heritage Restoration in the interest in helping her acquire support in restoring the old sash windows! They were very sensitive to helping her with the needs of the building and were able to help with the keeping of the period.

Tired and achy muscles

My auntie had been on an exercise plan and healthy eating plan but she was also feeling tired and achy. Have a Hart Fitness recommended her to have a sports massage to relieve the extra stress that she felt in her muscles. They were excellent and this was a good recommendation! They provided a very professional and high standard of personal service, and she felt that she would benefit to go back there again fairly soon! She set up a regular plan to have a massage every month and it made all the difference. Massage, alongside an exercise plan, and a healthy eating plan was all that she needed.

Different course of direction

My wife looked to Partners for Training to help her change her course of direction. She needed to learn some new skills and they helped her to see the way ahead. She had decided that she wanted to retrain and do an Apprenticeship in Health and Beauty. She found that the course was fantastic! The trainers were very good and they were very skilled in teaching the course content that had been devised. Her tutor was always available if she needed any help with any extra course content. She sometimes had group tutorials and other times she had one to one tutorials. She found the teaching style very varied, skilled and informative!

Fire Safety in Pub

My brother sent his team of employees on a fire safety training course as he was shocked to learn that 3/4 of his staff had never had fire training in their previous jobs. He had their training day with ETC Fire and he found it to be highly valuable and very thorough. The actual style of teaching struck the right balance between relaxed yet engaging. He asked his employees how they found the training and what their thoughts and feelings were about the day, and he was pleased to report that they all found it relevant and interesting. But what delighted him the most, was that his staff seemed to bond together and really interacted with each other. Training days like those are extremely valuable to a work force, not just for the obvious reasons but they just seem to be great team building exercises.

Ice cream shop

My uncle owns a small, independent, Italian ice-cream shop. Over the summer he was very unfortunate as his main large freezer went bust, resulting in most of his ice-cream melting and turning into a complete waste and loss of money. He was very angry as he had to close the shop down for the day. He called up 4Facilities who came to his assistance in a very speedy fashion! They carried out a consultation with him where he discussed the options available. The very next day, they were back in the shop and installing the new freezer. They were incredibly professional and worked very hard and quickly. They really went the extra mile for my uncle.

College Drama

My half-sister works as a receptionist in a college and had to urgently get a plumber in throughout the holidays. One of the girls toilets had flooded over the time the college was closed and with enrolment day not too far away she had to get it fixed as soon as possible. Sam Mercer Plumbing came to the rescue and did a fantastic job of fixing the problem. The girls toilets were in such a state after the flooding, she didn't think it was possible to get it fixed and back to normal in time for enrollment day. Luckily, she went to the right company who got right down to work and left the girls toilets looking as good as new.

Great Advice

My uncle was so glad that he listened to Steve Ely, he gave him advice and guided him in choosing the right sized cowl for his chimney. The cowl acts as a sort of blocking system and stops leaves and even animals from getting in your chimney. He was surprised at how simple it looks but how effective it is. He hasn't had any problems with a blocked chimney since the last time he called in SE Chimney Sweep. If you haven't already got a cowl and are finding your chimney is not working as you'd expect it to, then buy a cowl. They are great!

Vandalism at Work

My friend owns a small business and has a few employees working for her. She was delighted to finally have bought some offices as the first year was spent working from home and as you can imagine the house got a little busy for business. She and her team left on the Friday for the long bank holiday weekend ahead of them. When they returned to work on the Tuesday, she was so angry to find that the building had been vandalised. There was graffiti everywhere, over the door, on the window frames Reid Briggs Insurance Brokers had her covered for every penny and the vandalism was soon cleaned off. She was so pleased that she was insured with such a great company.
