Harry’s allotment

We have just received this great message from Harry regarding his allotment. Back in March 13 year old Harry Gunston approached us for some timber to line the border of his allotment because the ones that where there had become rotten.

“Thanks from Harry and me for your support in helping Harry with his allotment.  The wooden planks, which were kindly donated by Tate Fencing, were perfect for the job. As suggested, please see the photographs below of a very proud Harry with the timber in place, together with more recent photos of Harry  with his some of his produce”.

We are glad to have been able to help out, and its great to see his hard work starting to pay off with some great produce.

St Leonard’s Church of England Primary Academy allotment

A great update from Joe at St Leonard’s Church of England Primary Academy, we recently donated some timber to the Academy.  They wanted to open an allotment on site as part of raising awareness surrounding where our food comes from, promoting healthy lifestyles and enhancing outdoor learning for their children.
The planters are made ready to use and Joe added “I had some left over wood so was able to make a bench for reception visits as well!”

Customer feed back – Chestnut post & rail to Gloucestershire

Charles came to us to supply him some 2 rail chestnut post and rail for a job in Southrop. We were really pleased he chose to let us supply him in Gloucestershire.
And even more so when he sent us some great feedback on how the finished job went.

The fencing was delivered neatly on pallets on the scheduled date by a very friendly and efficient driver. Although we had a few holes that ran into Cotswold stone rubble under foot, most of it was pretty straight forward with about 18 inches of top soil over clay so, relatively  easy hole boring to a depth of 30 inches. The timber was well prepared and we only had to “fiddle” with a couple of posts. We completed the job in about 4 days and have a robust and attractive fence which will look even better with weathering. As you can see from the picture, it wasn’t great weather when we did the job (that’s my groundsman in the picture and a hired 3 tonne Kuboto digger) but its now been sown so should green up quickly.

Great service and well worth getting it all the way from Sussex.

Best regards

Charles
