We had a lovely email a few days ago from a customer who had bought some Heptonstall benches for their local park.

Messages like this are wonderful for our Testimonials Page as they help and inspire us, but we’re also putting it here as we thought you might find the before and after photos interesting.

“I am the Chair of Friends of Longsight Park and we are very happy with your service and the benches we now have in Longsight Park, Bolton. I attach a photo from today and one from 2014 showing the disgraceful seating we had before.
We were initially advised to pay £1800 for wooden benches and were very pleased to find a use for all the plastics which we pick up in litter picks at a much more manageable price, and you did a 4 for the price of 5 at the time! The seating stays warmish unlike some others in the park which are metal so cold, does not need painting so does not peel off like paint. The park looks a lot better for it. They are well used as the locals now have clean seating for many years to come, thankyou.”
