    Would you kindly pass on my thanks to Ben from Blakes who attended again this afternoon to attend to the mobility scooter/garage.

    He was professional and had empathy with the residents as they were concerned about opening and closing the garage door. Ben fully understood their disabilities and fitted a padlock accessible to them and they were reassured.
