    Good afternoon,

    I recently purchased a 3 seat Dale bench as a memorial to my Mum. It is sited at her local bowls club, where she had many happy times.

    I cannot express my gratitude enough to TDP, for their 5-star customer service. They provided a friendly, extremely helpful and professional service. Their attention to detail was amazing and the product itself was absolute quality. I could not have asked for any better. All those that have seen the bench, have commented how nice it looks and also how well made it is.

    Seeing the bench with the beautiful engraving, at the bowls club in memory of my Mum, certainly bought a tear to my eye.
    Thank you to everyone involved at TDP. A very fitting and perfect memorial to my Mum.
    Means so much to me.

    Hi Nicola,

    Thank you, the second bench has been delivered and is placed in the beer garden at Preston Marina. We spent a lot of time here together and I still do.

    So it will be a lovely spot to sit and remember. I think the marina may be customers when they renew the outdoor furniture, they were impressed with the bench.

    David commented on our recent Kings Award win and sent this patriotic picture of a Dale bench he purchased from us back in 2017

    “This is fantastic news. The memorial bench we got for my father-in-law is still going strong”.

    Many thanks

  11. Janis I

    Many thanks Michelle,

    We were very pleased with the Dale bench we purchased last year and which is sited in our new Quiet Garden at St John’s in Pittenweem. It was used well by both locals and visitors to the area during the Summer season and we now look forward to having a second bench to provide people with an opportunity for a moment of calm in their day.

    Again, many thanks,

  12. L Green

    Hi Nicola

    Just a quick email to say how delighted we are with the new Dale bench.

    We were pleased to see that it came all assembled and members loved how sturdy and heavy it is. Our tennis courts attract the wind, and this bench is certainly not going anywhere! Being maintenance free is also an added bonus! Picture attached.

    Kind regards

    Just to let you know that the memorial bench arrived safely this morning and looks absolutely perfect situated in front of a flower bed in the garden at the Bournemouth Natural Science Society.

    Thank you so much for your kind help and so pleased the bench arrived a week before our grandson’s birthday.

    Kind regards

  14. Louise B

    Hello Nicola,

    Big thank you to all! We are all overwhelmed with how brilliant this bench looks! Absolutely over the moon with it! Such a lovely way to commemorate our loved one.

    Thank you again to all at your team.

    Kind regards,

  15. Emily

    Dear Nicola and everyone else who helped/communicated with me over with this – Anne, Michelle, Lindsey and Rob,

    I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the bench and all the organisation around delivery. You were all so patient and helpful at every stage. The delivery person was great and so helpful too.

    We couldn’t be more happy with the bench and the plaque – it looks perfect as the replacement for the bench which had been there for 37 years. Let’s hope it might outlast that one – it seems very resilient and less likely to be washed out to sea (that happened, 5 years ago, to the last one but it was found 60 miles up the coast and returned).

    Here are a couple of pictures from Port Isaac – I imagine you don’t always see your benches in their destinations spots…

    Many thanks again,


  16. Ian H

    Good morning TDP

    I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all you did to get my wife’s memorial bench to me in super fast time and amazing customer service.

    We raised £2400 on the day for our local cancer charity and thank you all for playing your part, my daughter, son and I are truly grateful.

    Kind regards

    Good morning
    Just wanted to let you know that we are absolutely delighted with our recent purchase of Dale benches and Tea for Two sets.
    We were looking for something low maintenance, sturdy and stylish for the gardens at our holiday rental accommodation and these are perfect.

    Excellent customer service who kept us informed of the order progress. Items were well wrapped/packaged when delivered on pallets.
    Very comfortable to sit on easy to clean.

  19. Jennifer

    Dear Kym,
    I just wanted to send a thank you for the lovely memorial bench you provided for my aunt on the IOW.

    It was much admired by many people at her memorial service on 20th November. It is in a lovely position in the churchyard with a view overlooking the river Medina, a view that she loved, and a church where she spent many hours during her lifetime. I have attached some photos so that you can see the lovely spot.

    I would also like to say that I have been very impressed by the friendliness, helpfulness and professionalism of everyone I have spoken to in your company and would recommend you to anyone.



  20. Carol Barker

    We do have lots of your seats – 34 at least!

    I am still trying to get ALL of our seats as TDP recycled ones, I have been in post 10 years and we have a few left to replace.
    We have them placed in Hinderwell, Staithes, Runswick Bay, and Port Mulgrave.
    I have recommended your seats to neighbouring Parish Councils and I see some when I am out and about.
