The Environment Agency.

“White Horse Contractors carried out works to create different habitats within 2 lagoons at the RSPB's Rye Meads Reserve. The base of the lagoons was removed and sluices installed to control water levels. White Horse Contractors carried out these works to a very high standard and were always helpful and easy to deal with. The reserve and its paths were left neat and tidy. I would happily use them again.”
