"Berkhamsted School in Hertfordshire was founded in 1541 and places great emphasis on providing the best possible sporting facilities and surfaces for its 1,700 pupils. In 2017 a decision was made to outsource the application of herbicides, liquid fertilisers and any additional spraying requirements on the sports pitches. Further to meeting Will & Hamish Pryse and being impressed by their professionalism, the decision was reached for CWC to become the School's preferred supplier. Since then the pitches have been treated with selective herbicides and a programme of Clipless growth regulator, Elevate FE and Headland Xtend, with great success. CWC are a first class contractor, both Will & Hamish demonstrate a high degree of professionalism and attention to detail...I highly recommended." Mike Herring, Head Groundsman, Berkhamsted School.
