Corporate Facilities Service 

 "We have met with Susan Hodson, Sandy Morris and Belinda and all three have been extremely helpful, professional and supportive. Our premises have been reassessed, inspections reports provided, a training plan has been put in place, and we have had meetings to support us through a difficult period. Susan has offered to return and speak with our Caretaker direct and to report back in writing. Information has been emailed to us to assist us with our discussions with the staff concerned and caretaking/cleaning supply cover has been provided to cover holiday periods.

I think people are always quick to complain and very often don't pass on their appreciation, so we really felt the need to say thank you. Not quite sure what we would have done without their support over the last few weeks! Perhaps you would be kind enough to pass on our appreciation to the team"

 SBM of a Warwickshire Maintained school

 

"The support and advice that has been provided has been really helpful and very much worth the price of the service."

Construction Services 

"I just wanted to take the opportunity on the day that the work at Kenilworth has been completed to say what a pleasure it has been to work with Simon Guild.

 Simon has been the ultimate professional throughout the planning and subsequent completion of the work and has ensured the seamless completion of the task. He has spoken with irate neighbours and has smoothed the waters in discussions with elected members. I cannot begin to tell you how impressed I have been with his work ethic and commitment to the completion of a job well done"

 Operations Manager of a Warwickshire Maintained school

 

 "Just wanted to say thank you very much for arranging the tar-paving works that took place during the February half term.  The widening of the path and the new waiting area have made such a difference for the parents in particular who no longer have to walk over muddy / sodden grass given the rain we've had this winter!

 Please also pass our thanks to your contractor who caused no disruption to us at all."

 SBM of a Warwickshire Maintained school

 

 "I have just had the pleasure of a handover meeting with Lindsey, Tony and Mark and I just wanted to let you know that their planning, discussions and execution of the works was faultless. They have been very supportive at a time when school personnel during the holiday period was particularly stretched. I felt very assured that the keys to my lovely school would be in safe hands. The quality of finish to all areas of the completed work is excellent - Thank you"

 Headteacher of a Warwickshire Maintained school

 

 "Just a quick message to say a HUGE thank you Matthew. The site is clean and tidy and your coordination of this asbestos removal meant I arrived to find, exactly as promised, a reoccupation note for today. I appreciate how much you have done to make this happen!"
