I have been in place as the Sothern Region Head of Security, Crime and Resilience since January 2023 but the team have been working with Lingwood Security since October 2022. From my inception, I have been thoroughly impressed with the service provided. I have regular meetings with the management team where we discuss performance and are able to drill down into the value for money provided. My team advise me that Lingwood are an integral part of security of the railway. They contribute to the overall intelligence picture by reporting issues and responding to incidents on a 24 hour basis. They form part of the tasking process contributing to where they feel they can add most value. I have been particularly impressed with the flexibility of the team. The nature of our business means that we often have to respond to last minute security requests and Lingwood have always been able to deliver, often going over and beyond what we ask.

Paul Langley, Head of Security, Crime and Resilience, Network Rail, Southern Region 

Thank you for having me – it was great to see the job. The overall feedback I have for you is hugely positive. I was taken with the professionalism of the entire team from the moment I arrived. This included ‘Riz’ on the gate who was polite, well informed and a credit to the team. Riz was an exemplar of how it can be done well. I was also taken with the general housekeeping on site and the standard of compound. This extended into office cabins and welfare – and gives a good first impression. The Site Induction and overall brief, as well as the discussion, were very good. This inspires confidence and it was evident that this was an experienced team with a high standard throughout. Please pass on my thanks to all. The site Tour was also informative, and it was good for my understanding of how this non-contestable job was being executed. There are multiple moving parts and lots of Risk. However, these felt measured and a sound plan in place.

I have had Lingwood Security on site for the last 5 months, in this the time I have had no issues at all. The guards are always on time, polite and carry out their duties to a high standard, even leaving the cabins mopped and sanitized to help with the fight against COVID19 and keeping our site working. We have frequent visits by the company management and a good line of commutation with Summer. I  will definitely be using Lingwood Security again and have recommended them to my collegues.

Lutfur Rahman (Canal and River Trust), Community Roots Engagement Coordinator

The Security Officers were professional and did their duty very well. Thank you very much.

Kiera Whittaker (Holker Hall and Gardens), Event Administrator

The officer was great, please thank him from us! He went above and beyond and absolutely no complaints from us!

I was completely satisfied with the service your men provided whilst working on our site in Bournville. WPD have strict rules and procedures for obvious reasons and your men adapted to them accordingly whilst maintaining a professional outlook.  Look forward to working with you again in the near future, stay safe.

Ian Edwards, Rosebank Electrical Engineers

First off may I express my satisfaction with the excellent work the cleaners have done at Stonepit quarry. The areas they cleaned are sparkling and they have put in a good shift. The second thing I’d like to express is our happiness with the daytime security guard we have had this week. The guy has performed very well indeed and deserves praise as such.

Dave Carling, Site Manager, Wood PLC

Please pass on this praise to both the cleaning team and the security guard.

The security guard turned up in plenty of time, and he was really helpful and looked after our site for us well. The festival went really well. Even though we all got soaked at the end when we were packing up.

Andrew Watton, NG Contract Co-Ordinator, Chubb Systems Limited

Thanks for your response to the St John’s Wood callout last week. The feedback was very positive with regards to your response and your attending security officer – they made a point of passing this on during our Monthly Meeting this Weds. Every time Lingwood have attended an NG site so far, we have received positive feedback, which is fantastic for me to be able to offer your services more regularly moving forward.

Graham Wood, Duty Manager Operations & Events, Anderton Boat Lift - Canal & River Trust

Can I thank you for providing some excellent staff for our recent Beer, Bands & Burgers event which we held on 24th to 26th May 2019. I must compliment your staff who turned up punctually each evening, very professional, helpful and were very efficient in the way they cleared the public from our lift view marquee after the event was over, they are a credit to your company. Thanks once again for all of your help and I look forward to speaking to you in the near future about our Firework Spectacular later in the year.

Nichola Sykes, Assistant Quantity Surveyor - Balfour Beatty Rail

Having used Lingwood Security Management Ltd for a number of years on site projects across the country, I am continually impressed by the excellent and reliable service they provide. The phone is answered immediately and everyone I have dealt with has been friendly, professional and on-the-ball. They are always willing to bend over backwards to supply security solutions even at a moment’s notice. I would highly recommend Lingwood Security, and look forward to working with them on future projects.

Rob Hopper – Galliford Try

I am the Site SHEQ Manager for the National Grid House in Warwick where we have your Guards on site. I would just like to say that we have had a very positive experience with your guards and will be looking to employ them on future sites should there be a requirement. Two Guards in particular have been extremely helpful and carried out their duties with tenacity and followed company procedures to the letter. I must add that these two guards are a credit to Lingwood and promote a very positive image of the level of service that your company provides. I would therefore seek to hire these guys again should the opportunity arise.

Michelle Whitton - Secretary to the Friends of LRGS

On behalf of the Friends of Lancaster Royal Grammar School, I would like to thank you for your help and assistance in making our Burns Night celebrations a memorable occasion on the LRGS calendar.  We particularly wish to extend our thanks to Liam and Brandon, who were friendly and helpful, and assisted until late in the evening to ensure that the event was a success and safe for all attending.

Louise Collinson – Truckhaven (Carnforth) Ltd

A brief note to say that our car park attendant is doing a really good job, he has settled in well and picked up the role with no problems.  The drivers are passing on comments that it is reassuring to know that he is out patrolling the park, and that he is pleasant and helpful. The staff say he is a pleasure to work with and they feel confident knowing he is around, and that he is doing exactly what is expected from him. A big thank you to Lingwood Security and your facilities management department.
