Our customers love us!


As a company, Gates and Fences UK really do believe in giving back where we can. Over the years we have been involved in multiple good causes –  from larger TV features to smaller charities and school fund raising events to memorial gardens. As we are a nationwide based company, our donations have been given throughout the whole of the UK. If you have a good cause that needs support, contact us to apply for a donation. (
Here are a few that we are most proud of being involved in.

BBC ONE Children in Need – DIY SOS The Big Build


In September 2013, we were contacted from the BBC and asked if we would like to donate custom made side gates and fence panels to ‘The Little Miracles’ project, part of BBC’s ‘Children in Need’ featured in the BBC One special programme ‘DIY SOS: The Big Build with Children in Need’. The cause, a life changing transformation to the centre for disabled children in Peterborough called ‘The Spinney’.

To match the exterior of the building, we were asked to manufacture the gates and fence panels from Thermowood to the architects design and dimensions. This needed to be completed to a strict deadline and delivered on site. To help the build, we were also asked to install the goods in Peterborough – a fair drive from Devon! So, with one of our van’s and three staff members (one being the Production Director!) we turned up on site the morning before the ‘big reveal’. This wasn’t through choice, in an ideal world we would have been there before hand but as it was only a 10 day build this was the day we were told to turn up!

With over 160 other tradesmen on site and a traffic light system in place due to all the vans being parked to say space was an issue would be an understatement. The gates and fence panels were installed (with labour help from the Army and an architect). During which, we were also asked to manufacture and install two further side gates. Thankfully, we were finished and off site at 8:45 pm…others didn’t finish till 2:30am!!

This is being aired on TV in November 2013 – look out for any gate or fence panel as these will be the ones we supplied and fitted and also three chaps dressed in black with the ‘Gates and Fences UK’ logo!

Overall, a great experience and we, as a company feel honoured that we were chosen to undertake this task. From office staff communicating backwards and forwards to the BBC, joiners in the factory manufacturing the gates and fence panels to spec and the three who turned up to fit, a good job done – and obviously done with no charge. A great way to donate for such a good cause and a highlight for 2013 for Gates and Fences UK.

ITV 1 Love Your Garden with Alan Titchmarsh


Late September 2016 we were contacted by ITV 1 and asked whether we would consider manufacturing and donating a metal framed side/ pedestrian gate in the York design. The cause was a complete garden makeover for a WW2 veteran and POW who was 93 years old. Due to health reasons, he requires the use of a mobility scooter. Our donated gate would provide a side access for his scooter to enable him to get to his garden. The gate, finished in Iroko hardwood with a metal frame would also be fully automated allowing easy access through with a push of a button. The end result was truly wonderful. The garden looked beautiful and the chap involved was over the moon. We hope our gate has helped him to enjoy his garden more.

Show aired on ITV1 Wednesday 26th July 2017 – more details, see here.

Rowcroft Hospice – Metal Gates and Fencing

Another wonderful charity. Rowcroft hospice provides specialist care, support and comfort to over 2000 patients per year. As an independent charity, they rely solely on donations to enable the charity to run. Known mainly for there comfort provided to those with only weeks left to live. Patients are taken in and given care in a beautiful surroundings rather than a hospital.
In 2016, they approached us to construct a large metal gate with matching railings to protect one of their shops. The shop is used for people to drop off clothes etc to which is then sorted, cleaned and resold – all ran by volunteers. When we heard who it was for and found out what they were about, we were happy to help. Proudly, we donated a stunning set of gates and fencing which definitely helps protect the area.


Operation Braveheart – Memorial Gardens

2017 we were contacted by “Operation Braveheart”. A small group of people who had been given some land by their local council to develop into a memorial garden for all those lost at war. It was being run by someone who had recently lost their grandson. The aim was clear, to provide an attractive metal garden entrance gate large enough for wheel chair access. After browsing our gate designs, they came up with one that would suit. To enhance the gate and really make it look the part, they asked whether we could produce a feature image and incorporate it into the gate. We think it makes a fitting finish to the garden.



Stunning service from start to finish with text and mail updates on build progress, Then when the gate arrived I was really pleased with the quality of the build. Would buy again.

This is the second gate we have bought from Gates and Fences. We were very happy with the first although the queue at that time was long, they kept in touch all the way until it was delivered as and when promised.

We like the quality and finish of the first so felt quite happy to wait for the second and we were delighted when it was promised and also delivered in a much shorter timespan.

Communication throughout the process was excellent and the care taken to ensure that our order was accurate and contained everything we needed. Well Done!

Quality product and excellent service. Very pleased with my new side gate which is solidly built and will clearly last many many years. The ordering process was efficient with clear and helpful responses. I’d definitely use this firm for any future needs.

Lance Pitts


Easy to use website, well followed up with email progress reports as build progressed. Arrived on promised date, friendly crew unloaded gates.
Builder confirmed good quality gates and hinges/fittings also look good. Gates have now been installed and we are very pleased with the way they enhance the kerb appeal of our house.

Harry Richardson


I received regular updates on progress hence able to plan fitting easily (gate is for busy hotel) The gate was well packaged, everything was present and correct. Build was very good, it’s a decent weight and I think it’ll prove solid enough to cope with the use it’ll get for many years.
Visually it’s excellent and has already drawn several admiring comments.
Overall a super service and quality product.

Kevin Hardy


A properly made gate built to last.
The whole experience was excellent, I was helped measuring the opening, discussing the options and finally choosing the right gate. I was kept informed during the UK manufacturing process, order was shipped as arranged, all well packaged. Hanging the gate (on my own) was possible, the instructions could be a little clearer but help is at hand via telephone. After sale service is also first rate. Overall – Very impressed 5 *****

Toby Arnold


From my first phone call to delivery, the information, advice and general communication was excellent. I was firstly advised that there might be a 4-6 week lead-in time but the gates were delivered in 4 weeks from ordering. That is 1st class service. E-mails kept me informed of the start of the manufacturing, to the end of the process of staining, oiling, quality control to delivery date. Well done.

Ron Wallace


An excellent product at a reasonable price. Right from my first enquiry the company was very professional. They helped confirm my calculations for a bespoke size and kept me informed every step of the way. Quoted 5 weeks the our gate arrived in just 3. Product was of good quality and arrived well protected against damage. I found the website very good too. All in all very pleased with our purchase. Andy Boulter

I ordered a side gate from Gates and Fences as they were one of the few companies that could offer a bespoke gate at a reasonable price. I was very pleased with the quality of the end product, and it arrived well within the advertised turn-around time.

Cheryl Robertson


After completing the on-line order information, the company were very quick to respond and clarify my requirements.They did this by email and it a was a very efficient process. I was updated by email throughout the manufacturing process right up to when the side gate I ordered was delivered. Although I have not installed it yet, it looks magnificent ‘a beast of a gate’, but very good looking. I would highly recommend this company.
