David Rackham epitomises the dedication and skill that you expect to see from a proponent of the ancient art of thatching. All his materials are sustainable and hand prepared; assembled with skill and panache. The finished article is splendid indeed: a roof is too small a word for it. What really surprised us was just how neat and tidy it looked close up. For a proponent of an ancient craft, David is a modern young man, polite and courteous and excellent company. He's a good man to have on your roof.

Dear David, Thank you so much for doing such a lovely job on the ridge of our barn. It was such a pleasure for Irere and me to watch you and your father at work, and to think of previous generations of your family who had also worked on this barn.

We should like to thank you very much indeed for the splendid work that you have done on the thatched cottage. The whole village, I believe, admires your handiwork and some of us envy your skills - its beats daily commuting to London hands down!
