“…I visited Powis last week, and saw the tiger skin – which looked fantastic. The team there all commented on the improvement, and are very pleased with the results…. and your excellent reports that provide a very clear and detailed record of the treatment and your decisions – it is a pleasure to read reports like these! It is also very helpful to have the results of the XRF, highlighting the risks associated with these collections.”
