On top of this Mant Leisure has provided equipment that has been exciting and value for money.”
Paul Russell, Stratton St Margaret Parish Clerk
“We needed a more exciting play area offering safe and inspiring play equipment for the younger members of the community. Mant Leisure was one of our chosen 3 play providers and it soon became clear that our youngsters liked the range of equipment Mant Leisure could provide. After several months, during which a number of visits were made to see us, backed up by supportive emails and phone calls from the team, I can honestly say I feel we have had first class support and service from a company who do care about their customers. Today we are close to reaching our objective. There is a sense of achievement locally, but it is in no small measure thanks to Charles Mant and his team that our new play area will be completed in the autumn of this year.”
Dot Spragg, Mawgan-in-Meneage Recreation Committee
“We have worked with Charles Mant on two major play area projects in Tenby in recent years. From initial concept through to design and construction we found his insightful advice, assistance, professionalism and reliability invaluable in the success of both projects and we would be happy to work with him again on any future projects within our town.”
Andrew Davies, Clerk to Tenby Town Council
“For anyone seeking to make new childrens’ play areas then all we can say is “look no further than Mant Leisure”. When we were planning to replace the old 1950’s equipment, Charles help and advice was first class. From the first time we met him, his enthusiasm shone through and his knowledge of the equipment, all safety requirements etc. gave us the guidance we were seeking and with his up-to-date modern approach he advised of what children of today would be looking for, and also at the same time giving them all the physical challenges needed within play . Consequently now we have a play park to be proud of. We are having people come from all surrounding areas to enjoy our facilities, and never has the park been so full of families with picnics – which has given the Parish Council a great sense of achievement. Parents are also so happy to see their children actively enjoying themselves, and the only problem is trying to get them out of the park and home in time for tea or bed !!
And of course following on from our first play park, because we were so pleased with it we returned to Charles to help, design and create our smaller toddlers play area in another part of the village.”
Ron and Shirley, Ipplepen Playpark Project
“I have known Charles Mant for many years and through him, whilst working for two town Councils, have purchased play equipment and a pavilion. He is a reliable and realistic ‘salesman’ who I worked closely with on a number of projects to deliver each on time following due procedure on tender process and funding sources; and I also wish to commend his after sales service.
I will continue to consult Charles whenever the Council wish to look at replacement or additional play equipment for our park.”
Don Bent, Clerk to Okehampton Town Council
“Northway Parish Council (and formerly Ashchurch Parish Council) have been associated with Charles for more years than I have been a Clerk. Charles was very involved in the design of a skate park that was installed in the Parish, probably 18 years ago, which is still going strong!
Through out that time, Charles has always made himself available to discuss any changes required and has been quick to respond to queries In more recent years Charles has been supplying the Parish Council with very substantial litter bins, benches, fencing and noticeboards. One of the pleasures of working with Charles is that he doesn’t need to do high pressure selling, his goods and reputation speak for themselves.
In this day and age where everything is so impersonal and computer generated it is so good to find a friendly voice at the end of the phone or alternatively a rapid response to an email. I cannot recommend Charles and his team strongly enough.”
Christine Woodward, Northway Parish Clerk
