Many thanks to friends in the South west

I love this part of the country.

People are so friendly here and there is a real spirit of community. This has been highlighted by my first experience of having a home improvement done on our new house. We have been in the house for a year or so and have always wanted to get the driveway done because it was such a mess when we bought it.

….We now have a perfect resin bound drive that is the envy of our street.

But it ghas been a rollercoaster trying to get everything sorted with it. But it is the community spirit that helped us with more than one problem. The first issue was when the contractors accidently cut off our power. We were left with no mains supply for 2 days and both evenings we were invited to dinner at our neighbours houses!

Thank you very much to James from number 4 and Jant & Bob from number 11!

The second incident was when the building company we were using for our driveway construction had an emergency within the bosses family and they were unable to complete the job.

Fortunately they connected us with The Bristol Driveway & Patio Pro who came along and did a fantastic job taking over from the previous contractors.

Anyway as you can see we now have our perfect resin driveway!
