Well we enter 2021 and another lockdown. Only this time we are in the middle of Winter, the days are short and look at the weather. Totally the opposite to the fantastic weather and longer days that we had during the first lockdown.
We were there for you back in May for all your gardening needs and we have everything in stock again ready to beat the winter weather and dark nights......
We've got a selection of torches and head torches - not forgetting the batteries or work lights and flood lights for bigger areas......
De-icer, screenwash, ice scrapers and car shampoo not forgetting the sponge. Yes, we have all been told to only make essential journeys but your car could be iced up this weather when you have to go out on your essential journey, and it is better to be prepared and safe. Don't forget those tyre pressures either as we always have footpumps and compressors in stock.
Our feathered friends can soon go hungry this weather. The display of bird food and feeders is just through the door so you can't miss it.
Keep warm head to toe whilst working outside with our range of Scruffs workware and wide our selection of gloves, not forgetting the O'Keefes hand cream for dry and chapped hands, and if it gets particularly wet underfoot we've got plenty of Wellies to choose from too. We even have flasks so you can take your tea or coffee out with you.
Don't get caught out and slip on those icy paths. We have both brown rock salt (with grit) and (pure) white salt in stock. The latter won't stain the carpets if it accidently gets 'walked' in ..... if you wanted to know the difference.
Talking of falling over..... well hopefully not..... we have a shelf full of different types of washing powder, conditioner, detergent etc to clean the mud off in a flash. Oh and there's even furniture polish on that shelf too, so if you've nothing else to do in lockdown you could always start spring cleaning. Well it was only a thought !! Easier still there a few lovely indoor plants left in stock if you want to just brighten the place up.
After being outside in the cold and frost there's nothing nicer than going inside and getting warm over an open fire or stove, and we are stocked up with logs, coal, kindling sticks, fire lighters etc to keep those fires going. Not forgetting we also stock electric heaters from domestic to industrial, so there's no excuse to be cold this Winter and hopefully not, but if you do get a burst pipe or a flood we also have de-humidifiers.
As you already know we always stock power tools and garden machinery and we repair them too. Winter is often the best time to bring items in for repair as you should get them back sooner than in Spring or Summer plus you are not normally using your machines over Winter. Give us a ring or call in to book the items into our workshop.
On a more mundane note we stock hand sanitiser, wipes, sprays, masks and gloves for protection against Covid and we have all measures in place in the shop if you come in. If on the other hand you would prefer not to enter the building, please give us a ring and place your order over the phone and we can bring it out to your vehicle if you park up in the carpark. Alternatively if you live locally we can always drop your order off for you - leaving at a safe distance of course.
Please keep safe and as a local family firm if there is anything we can do to help in these strange times, do not hesitate to contact us.
