I'd like to take this opportunity to formally thank you for having the vision to provide our schools with such amazing tracks. The pupils, staff, governors and community are absolutely delighted with the result. 

The professionalism of the companies has meant that we've had our fields turned round with the smallest possible disruption to daily life at the school.  

I can't thank the companies - WSP (Ben Corfield), Kier (Steve Ash and Andy Lawrence), Tarmac, (Mathew Pugh) and L and R Roadlines (Paul Evans) enough for their vision and engagement with the schools. 

The track for us is much more than something to run around. It provides us with a resource which can be accessed all year and hopefully a place where the community can get some exercise when the weather is bad. 

Thank you for giving our children something very special which will benefit both schools way into the future!

St Georges Junior School

I just wanted to thank you for everything you have done with the implementation project of our School 'Daily Mile' Running Track.  

The children and staff are thoroughly enjoying the new addition to our school field. The excitement on the children's faces and enthusiasm they showed when the fences were taken away as they got their first play was priceless.

Please extend our thanks to your team throughout who were very helpful, pleasant and professional.  Without them and yourself we wouldn't have had such a seamless install.

From everyone at St George's Junior, we are very grateful.  I have received the photographs you have sent and we will get some of them into our newsletter hopefully this term.
