Just a few lines to express my gratitude to your security staff

Just a few lines to express my gratitude to your security staff (and dog) for their actions last night in dealing with our trespassers at Mill View Hospital.

I was just looking out over my back garden over the weekend and seeing what a good job that had been done and wondering who best to contact, so pleased that you e mailed.

We saw the guys work very hard clearing all of the rubbish (and shovelling what need to be shovelled!!) I would like to thank them and yourselves for sorting this issue.

The site appears to be well protected and the fence fixed.


Hi Jim,

Thanks for the fantastic service, Tony is on site now.

Anonymous – I have added you to the top of my list of go-to contractors

Just a short note to say how grateful and impressed I was with your company’s service. You were able to supply me with the fencing I needed within an hour or two of the initial phone call late on a Saturday afternoon. My Customer and their neighbours were equally impressed with how your staff were really helpful, professional and polite, throughout the installation. They were even more happy when you turned up the next day just to check that everything was OK. I have added you to the top of my list of go-to contractors, thank you.

The team did a great job during installation.


I wanted to say a massive thank you to you both in assisting with today’s ILRS set up at Enfield. Your behind the scene’s efforts were second only to Paul’s outstanding performance on site. He is quite simply a huge compliment to your firm; his attitude towards the task required and his tolerance, patience and enthusiasm, mixed with his natural character were nothing short of exemplorary and I would like to formally mark his efforts with a gift to say thank you.

Have a good evening both.

Maltaward who deserve highlighting for being so responsive

I wanted you all to see this circulation today, as all of you made a significant contribution last week to the issues related to the encampments at Broad Street & Rydes Hill, Guildford. To be successful required working as a team (particularly as I work part time) and we probably all felt the pressure created by the circumstances. Our contractors Maltaward who deserve highlighting for being so responsive (out of normal hours) and doing a great job, cheers


Praise for your Tony !

I wanted to email to say a very huge THANK YOU.

Today came Tony (the bollards chap) who again, was wonderful. He was on time, friendly and just got on with the task effortlessly and with good humour.
