Southern Events provide fantastic marquees to hire out. They offer packages which include food and entertainment as well as different styles and sizes of marquees. Everyone had a great time and loved the marquee set up.

Pleasant Guesthouse in Historic Town

If you are wanting a winter escape my friend recommends Arden Hotel which is in a coastal town called Eastbourne. The town itself is charming and stooped in history especially along the Victorian seafront which is just but a minutes walk from the guesthouse.

Restoration job

He is very grateful for restoring his garage roof and also his confidence in quality craftsmanship.

Grim, smelly car completely transformed

My wife bought a SEAT Ateca not long ago which was second hand. It was in good condition and drives well and it is one she has wanted for a while. It only needed a valet to bring it up to a quality condition. It smelt of dog and had grime on all the car seats, floor and ceiling. Eastbourne Car Valeting kindly took on this job and said he could easily get the interior of this car looking pristine again. And what a transformation! My wife is utterly thrilled with the outcome. The interior looks spotless and smells fresh. She would definitely highly recommend this company as they did a truly fantastic job.

A welcome change

The Best Bookings software has completely altered the way in which my parents working day operates. They wanted the guesthouse to be thriving and busy all year round, but they were beginning to feel a bit snowed under and overwhelmed with keeping track of all the guests checking in and out. Thanks to the new software, all guests now have the choice to book their stay online and check availability independently should they wish to. My mum feels less stressed and has fully adjusted to the pleasant change and even flow of guests coming and going. A welcome change! They now enjoy what they do once again.

Course structure

My niece had a sudden change of heart when she left school. For years she aspired to be a hairdresser but when it came down to enrolling at Partners 4 Training college in Uckfield, she decided to study a Barbering Course instead. The barbering world has really progressed in recent years and she finds that there is now a lot to learn and she found the course varied and current. She particularly appreciated being taught by professionals who have worked and lived the barbering career and who knows what they are talking about. They provided expert tips and tricks that she found invaluable. She wasn't fazed by being the only girl on the course and felt that the course structure and support that was given was fantastic.

Very satisfactory service

My niece's boiler needed to be removed and replaced and this was accomplished by Sam Mercer Plumbing who are a local company. She was apprehensive about the work that needed to be done and the disruption through the winter months. The engineers were courteous and worked fast as they understood the urgency of the timing. She was impressed was their empathy and how they tried their best to minimise the inconvenience to her and came in to complete the work on the Saturday morning when they could have easily left it until the Monday. She was beyond satisfied with the work and customer service.
