Thank you for the CD record of the making of our coat of arms. It was certainly a job well, and expeditiously, done and you would be very welcome to cite the Bursar of Wolfson College as an enthusiastic referee.

Just wanted to say thank you so very much for the wonderful job you and Fran have done. [The ironwork at Reynolds House Community Garden] is looking fabulous and it sounds like the children have really enjoyed and got a lot out of their workshops.

It has been a pleasure working with Tim, Fran and their team at Anwick Forge. They are spot on with their service and their detailed innovative work is second to none. From the moment you meet them their passion for their craft is obvious. Their work has featured in a number of my show gardens at Chelsea and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
