Tenacity often WINS the day.

Tenacity, Speed & decisiveness – again – wins the day. This year has been a BELTER. We’ve placed some smashers & some placed fast & easily as they were spotted a mile off & they were whizzy at getting back to us & responding. So once found, it was ‘all systems go’. I’ll bet we […]
