First of all thanks very much for 'phoning this morning to let me know your workforce was delayed due to the dreadful accident on the motorway; but the real reason for this e-mail is to express my fullest appreciation of the three really nice guys who turned up and got on with the job. They were simply fantastic. I had been dreading hours of upheavel and chaos; mess everywhere. But I was so wrong. The work site was contained to the smallest possible area; the repair/renewal carried out with what seemed to me to be the very minimum of upheavel and on finishing my utility room floor was much cleaner than when they began!

Please convey my sincere thanks and appreciation to the men; I commend them and give R D Water Engineers full marks for employing such an excellent workforce. I will certainly recommend R D whenever I can and will also tell SWW of my complete satisfaction.
