Mr & Mrs Da Costa, NE Lincs

John Drakes helped me with my pension pot; I was looking to reinvest it and John came and saw me. He explained everything to me in an easy to understand way. My wife and I were very impressed with his knowledge, very professional and friendly manner. My pension has done very well and I have encouraged family to speak with John. I thoroughly recommend John and Flying Colours.
