Customer review :

Hi John, the goods were delivered as promised on Thursday and we erected our double compost bin this afternoon. I just wanted to let you know that we are absolutely thrilled with our choice. It was incredibly easy to put together as the instructions were so clear and the materials so well made. Plus it looks fantastic and is very sturdy – a really good piece of kit! Thanks very much.
