  • Could you please pass my thanks to Richard for being so helpful, informative and generous with his time.

    He gave me  a really clear picture of all the options and  processes involved. His  informal advice was also really invaluable – such a  refreshing experience compared to poor information and advice I had been given elsewhere. From the moment I walked in the door everything lived up to your website.

    Thanks again

    Mr R
