Simon Gooch 16th May 2022

We were able to fully discuss our requirements beforehand, making use of Paul's experience to sort things out, and everything went according to plan on the day. Whilst I might have hoped for slightly better email communication on a few occasions, really everything went very well indeed and we are very grateful to Littleproud & Son for their attention to detail, calmness and willingness to take on board our wishes.
