What a fantastic course. I was totally happy with the course. Very informative and excellent tuition. I did a 2 week course. Came home and plastered up a wall and door in the living room, then had to do the ceiling because of a water leak. I was amazed at what I was able to achieve. I would recommend this course whole heartedly, in fact if I wasn't retired I would have gone into business. I cannot thank the guys enough they were excellent.

Willow re-pollarding was carried out with great skill, care, courtesy and tidiness. Remarkably good value.

Sam offers plastering courses to suit all needs, from those who wish to become full time plasterers to people like myself who just need some basic DIY training to tackle home projects and save a few bob. I went on the 2 day w/end course and for a reasonable fee was shown all I needed to start plastering with confidence. A good set up in a converted barn, his attention to detail and trade knowledge in the training is second to none, always on hand to offer advice when needed. You would not regret having a go at this and certainly would surprise yourself at how good you really can be with the correct tutor and environment.

I first spoke to Ashley a couple of years ago when my wife Jeanette started taking a big interest in photography and needed advice on camera selection and training. He was brilliant then, my wife has now just completed a second photographic course with him at nearby Painshill Park. Ashley is a great teacher and runs many different courses on varied aspects of photography. We would strongly recommend his courses for both beginners and experienced photographers alike and Jeanette has grown in confidence with his help. He is always there at the end of the phone for follow up advice. Thank you Ashley.

Ashley Gardners runs photo training courses both in UK and Northern Spain. He also provides photography services for weddings, events etc. Ash is particularly good at training people of all ages and skill levels. I have just completed a 6 day trip to Picos Mountains in Northern Spain and not only had a good holiday, but learnt an awful lot about how my camera works and all various settings enabling me to take much better quality shots. There is also IT education and advice on how to transfer photos and edit on to laptop.

Straight forward people to deal with, simple honest advice in very turbulent times, they talk about investments and mortgages in layman's terms (i find this helpful) We get a monthly news letter keeping us informed on the markets etc. Will certainly continue to do business together in the future without any hesitation.

Just finished 3 day First Aid at Work course with Margaret Smith (she is MCS Training Services). Could not have found a better trainer. Margaret has a huge amount of experience working with schools, companies, Duke of Edinborough Scheme, uniformed organisations, etc. She is happy to arrange training at a range of local sites or to travel to the customer location. She uses a clear and flexible approach to the learning and any issues that arise so that all in the class are comfortable with what they are learning and how to apply it. If you need any First Aid training (and we all should have some degree of awareness) for work or personally, I would not hesitate to recommend Margaret Smith.

Mr. Cooper really cares about the customers. He introduces to the utility warehouse discount club. Not only do I get excellent value from my club membership on all my home utilities, but Mr. Copper is always ready to come round and help, If I ask

Duckwood has helped me to feel more confident and motivated about my business because my marketing is now robustly planned and is actually working! I am also saving money because I am not trying out different ways of marketing which don't work.

After being with another Home Insurance company for many years, Bev from trader was reccommended to me by an associate. She managed to save me over £130 (nearly 40%!) on my home insurance and also made sure that the cover was exactly the same as what I had. In these days of comparethisandthat.com, sometimes the personal touch is still the best. Well done Allisons!
