“Our company are new Members to the GGF and I have found everyone extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I am a complete novice to glazing myself having moved from the police into my current position, but I am excited to learn as much as I can and would like to thank everyone at the GGF.”

“I have seen many businesses show enthusiasm but become disillusioned when a campaign doesn’t turn out the way it was expected.

“I don’t believe that this will be the case with Slimline and I look forward to seeing the work they put forward to progress further in the scheme.”
