Hi Guys - I might be wrong but I assumed this is a Photinia 'Red Robin' Tree/Bush. Anyhow I am a complete novice when it comes to gardening.

All suggestions greatly appreciated

In my humble opinion the best time to prune Photinia (Red Robin) is late spring just after flowering, although it can be pruned to tidy it up at any time during the summer. Don't be too brutal, just aim to get a bushy shape.
Is it in a pot?
I think it could be Photinia cassini 'pink marble.
It should thicken up in time, treat as red robin.
