Just to let you know how pleased we are with our lovely new shelter. It looks great and fits in very well with our entrance. Will send you photo when we take one. Also wanted to congratulate your workmen on how polite and accommodating they were to schools needs. They are exceptionally sympathetic about children and parents using the entrance while they were working and went out of their way to please everybody in school. They were pleasure to have on the premises. Please pass on our thanks to them and to the Contract Manager who made everything happen so smoothly. A McGourty, St Augustine’s Primary

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the two fitters who worked on our canopy. They were very co-operative and professional in their work, and kept us informed throughout. They were also very safety conscious and considered the safety of the children at all times.
We were very impressed and would recommend them.
L Denyer, Owner, Early Steps Pre-School

Battle Primary –
We are very pleased with how they look and that they will be a ‘boon’ for our children in terms of shade and rain protection.
However, my main reason for writing is that I am very pleased with the way in which your staff Martin Sears and Timothy Barclay, have carried out the project.
The space we used for the canopies is a main thoroughfare to our playgrounds. They have managed to keep this are very tidy and safe throughout the week so that we can function as a school without any inconvenience.
This was mainly due to Martin and Timothy, who in addition to doing such a good job have worked exceptionally well, ensuring ‘business as usual’ and have been very friendly with staff and children.
They are a credit to your company and I hope that you will let them know that I have followed up my appreciation of them with this letter.
A Long, Headteacher, Battle Primary

I am writing to say how pleased we are with the new canopies which you recently installed at our school. The whole process, from initial visit to completion, was carried out most professionally with minimal disruption to school life. The installation team were courteous and helpful and took great care to ensure that the site was left clear and tidy.
We are all delighted with our new facility, which is a massive improvement on what we had before.
Thank you once again.
J Jarvis, Headteacher, Boughton Monchelsea Primary
Crosby-on-Eden Primary –
Crosby-on-Eden Primary School has just had one of your canopies fitted over an outside play area for the reception and nursery classroom.
I wish you to know that this is the most superb structure and exactly what we wanted. It is very stylish and has been greatly admired by governors, staff, children and parents. I also want to tell you that the help we received from Douglas Cox has been exceptional.
I also want you to know that Warren & Anthony who came to carry out the work were the most pleasant, helpful, efficient and ‘warm’ workman that I have had the pleasure of working with. I am sure you will let them know of my gratitude to them and, of course, your company.
M Briggs, Chairman of Governors, Crosby-on-Eden Primary
Hi, I would like to thank your staff for the excellent job on the canopy, I have had reports from the classroom staff and the admin team and all have said how polite your guys were, how well the work was carried out with minimum disturbance to the daily life of the children, many thanks.
R Dray, Site Manager, Foxwood School
I am writing to express our satisfaction with our two new canopies, which will provide cover for our students at break and lunch times.
We have found the staff of your company very professional from the outset, flexible in their approach and producing workmanship of a high standard. In particular, the construction team caused the least amount of disruption to our school working day.
We would like to thank Gary, Warren and the team for all their hard work and would be pleased to recommend your product and your company to other schools.

I’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone at your firm, for the patience and professionalism that has been shown to use here at the school, bearing in mind the length of time it has taken for this project to be completed!!
The end result is fantastic. The build and finish are of high quality and already on our first day back at school we have received many compliments.
On a personal note my headteacher, Elaine Cooper, would like to pass on her personal praise for the workmen that installed the canopy during August, they worked really hard and were always professional. Thank you.
I will have no hesitation in recommending you to other schools in the area.
F Girdler, School Business Manager, The Horsell Village School
Humphry Davy School –
I just wanted to write and say thank you for the recent installation of the canopy on our school grounds. Students, staff and governors are delighted with the result and the extra panels that were fitted over the Easter break have made the project complete.
Our students seem to like the shelter more and more and when our new picnic tables arrive shortly we will have achieved our objective of creating a great place for them to sit, eat and socialise over morning break and lunch time.
Thanks again and maybe in the future you might like to pass our way and call in and see for yourself how much the space is used each and everyday.
L Hartman, School Business Manager, Humphry Davy School
Langton Green Primary –
I am writing on behalf of the staff, pupils and governors to thank you for the excellent canopy erected by your company during the school summer holidays.
The canopy is a tremendous asset to the school in providing a superb all weather activity area for our reception pupils.
The assistance of yourself and your colleagues at Clovis has been greatly appreciated and has resulted in a structure which has truly enhanced our school.
Our thanks must also go to your site erection team who undertook their work in a prompt, polite and professional manner.
We would not hesitate to highly recommend Clovis Canopies to any other school or educational establishment who are considering undertaking a similar project.
J Lees, Headteacher, Langton Green Primary
Lee Chapel –
We would like to take this opportunity of thanking Clovis Canopies for supplying and installing a superb shade canopy over our Foundation Stage play area which is proving to be “all weather”! The work was completed on schedule and to our complete satisfaction. Your company listened to our requests, provided a canopy which met all our requirements and was constructed with the minimum of fuss whilst the school was in session. The tradesmen who erected the canopy were most accommodating to the needs of the children and school and arranged their work schedule around the children’s play times. No request was ever too much trouble. I was particularly impressed with the regard the workmen paid to health and safety and with keeping the worksite clean and tidy. I also have to congratulate you on your professionalism and aftercare service, which has been second to none. A huge thank you to all of your staff.
I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Clovis Canopies.
S Jackson, Headteacher , Lee Chapel Primary
Longcot and Fernham Primary –
I am writing on behalf of staff, governors and pupils to thank you for the excellent canopy which you erected on our school site. We have had a variety of positive comments about the finished structure.
I wanted to thank you personally for the care and professional manner in which you set about surveying and quoting for this canopy. We were particularly impressed by the way that you attended to particular requested and necessary changes need to the basic structure (repositioning uprights to avoid doors, gutters, flashing etc). The team who built the canopy were so careful and thorough in their work and the finish of cement areas, paving slabs etc is excellent. I particularly want to thank you for the after installation care for detail which your company attended to. For example any minor details which could not be done during erection such as painting small scratches. This is most commendable to have this after sales service.
I have had no qualms in recommending your firm on grounds of value for money, installation and product to other colleagues.
Please would you thank all those concerned including the fabricators in the factory.
D Howlett, Headteacher, Longcot & Fernham Primary
Riverside Pre-School –
We would like to thank you and your colleagues at Clovis for all the help you gave us, especially during construction week! We would particularly like to pass on our thanks for your choice of contractors. Martin was helpful, polite and nothing was too much trouble. He was prompt and tidy which we appreciated as a lot of the work was on the schools property, not ours. We are very pleased with our canopy and look forward to a long hot summer outside, many thanks. R James, Riverside Pre-School
Extremely happy with the aesthetically pleasing design, build quality and courteous, cheerful workmen who erected the canopy. The children are proud of their new outdoor learning area and the staff keen to develop the Early Years Curriculum. A pleasure doing business with you and your team. S M Greenaway, Headteacher, Mereworth Primary
Shoreham Beach First School –
We just wanted to record our thanks for the work that your company completed at our school over half term. The canopy is superb and has been much admired – not least by the children who enclose their own thanks. It really transforms the courtyard into a much more versatile area which will now be well used throughout the year. Thank you, too, to your workman/men who were so helpful. Our caretaker lady, Betty, who I believe you met, was full of praise for their approachability and hard work. The site was left spotless – not always the case! We hope to erect two smaller canopies during the next couple of years and will be in touch regarding quotations. With thanks on behalf of the staff, governors and children at our school. S Searle-Barnes, Headteacher, Shoreham Beach First School
Many thanks for the installation of the canopy.I would like to congratulate you and your company on the professionalism of the project and also the installation team who worked extremely well and organised themselves and their deliveries etc in a very organised and timely manner. Please feel free to offer our school as a reference to any potential future customers you may have. The School are very pleased with the canopy. J Crittenden, Snodland Primary
Walton Holymoorside Primary
I just wanted to inform you that we have had one of your canopies installed this week and we are thrilled with it – it looks fabulous! Also, the workmen who have been on site this week have been fantastic. They have been polite, flexible and very aware of our “working needs” as a school. These days, we so seldom see companies delivering what they say they will and it has been refreshing change to have this installation done at the agreed time, on time and to such a high finish. Please pass on my thanks to all your staff involved with the whole process – from Lawson to the guys installing this week and everyone in between. Thank you. D Girdler, Headteacher , Walton Holymoorside Primary
The School is very pleased with the finished product; it fits in extremely well with the school and grounds. It is well worth spending the additional money to have the high-quality canopy. The men who installed the canopy kept us informed of the work and it certainly caused us no concerns regarding health and safety. It was a pleasure to work with the company. A Watts, Widcombe Infants
The two engineers that were working on the installation were extremely professional and we had no issues during installation – very well done, looks terrific! AP Barker
The Anthony Roper Primary School
I just wanted to say how thrilled we are with our new canopy!
We are extremely pleased and impressed with the final result.
The workman were very polite, friendly and helpful. They were able to answer any questions we may have had along the way. They were very professional and kept our site safe and tidy.
Churchfields Infants’ School
Our school has previously had numerous canopies built around it with different companies and sub-contractors involved – but Clovis has provided the most skillful and effective workforce to date!
I would thoroughly recommend you to other schools!
Congratulations … and thank you for a job well done.
School Business Manager
We have used Clovis Canopies on a range of projects for a variety of clients and always found them to be competitive , responsive and safe . Coupled with a “can do “ approach from design to fitting , this makes Clovis our first call when we require a canopy or shelter .
Clovis provides an excellent design service offering 2D and 3D drawing of the proposed canopies and quotation stage if required. This can be especially helpful to illustrate the proposed canopy to the client or Local planning Authority. Clovis will also visit the site if the host building has a complication or the canopy has an unusual configuration.
When an order has been placed, service continues to be timely and flexible and the end product has always been delivered and installed on programme and to a very high standard.
I have worked with Clovis Canopies for several years and have always found their response to be prompt, helpful an knowledgeable. We test the market value for every canopy that we procure and have found Clovis to be good value.
I am often asked to pass on Clovis’s contact details to those who have seen the canopies.
