Littlewood Fencing planned and installed our temporary security fence, badger and newt fencing with professionalism and to a high standard of quality. Their onsite management ensured that their logistics and safety were kept to a high standard and they were always courteous and polite in a difficult environment with the local population. Littlewood Fencings post installation service was also second to none with modifications and damage repair being undertaken quickly and to the same standard as the original install.
