Earls Colne in Essex has a War Memorial made of stone dating from 1921.
Over the past decades, the Memorial had become gradually dirtier due to traffic film, tree sap and other forms of clinging dirt in the air. As the Vice Chairman and Councillor with responsibility for the Memorial, I was authorised by the Parish Council to look into a cleaning of the Memorial. I contacted the War Memorials Trust and was directed to I.M.I.
Early 2012 I contacted I.M.I. and the immediate impression was of expert knowledge about the subject. After an initial chat, details of our Memorial were left. Within two days a reply was received to inform us as to how and what was required. I.M.I. had checked the details, 'googled' our Memorial and site and knew what was required.
After sanctioning from the Parish Council, they came down to us and not only cleaned the Memorial far beyond what we anticipated, but, also gave us a detailed survey of the condition of the Memorial. The cleansing has brought very good comments from the villagers and the Memorial now stands out as one travels the High Street.
I am very grateful for the service supplied by I.M.I. and would recommend their services to any Authority requiring work as supplied to us. Professional, caring,personal and communicative throughout.
