Just a note to say a huge thank you for all your work for the Camborne Switch On last night. The audience was estimated at 2500 people which is more than they have ever had before. From my point of view, thank you for your patience and flexibility to make this new event work. The clients are very happy with the whole project and with the service received from all suppliers.

Thank you for your support of our recent bonfire on Tremorvah Playing Field. The lighting rig made a big difference to access and safety on the ground. We had many comments of what an improvement this was, thank you! We raised £6453.68 on the night which we have sent to four local charities.

A big thank you for what you did for us yesterday it was fabulous. On behalf of all of our committee, please accept our thanks for your support. Same time, same place next year. Great day, great event, well enjoyed by the 1,000s who attended it....thank you for the part you played in it.

Truro Day Committee

Please pass on our thanks to your guy who delivered the generator to the Nare Hotel yesterday and also who picked it up today. He was helpful, polite and knowledgeable and helped us in getting the Nare up and running on the mains again.

Nare Hotel

Many thanks for all you did ‘above and beyond the call of duty’. The Festival was a great success and knowing we can rely on contractors like yourselves to help smooth out the inevitable glitches and last minute changes allows me to focus on what I have to do, so thank you again. All the best and, yes, we’ll remember you next year.
