  • We've been going through changes....

    The Shops...

    Signs New Signs

    The quieter winters in Glenridding give us a great chance to make the improvements to the shops that we’ve dreamt about all year – hopefully without disruption to our few hardier customers.

    This meant that two winters ago we could take the opportunity to swap out our old front entrance for a beautiful Oak frame with display cabinets to match.  This was a huge job by our standards and we’re really happy with the end result.

    We also renovated our lovely Beechwood floor with a serious amount of sanding, sweat and elbow grease from Mike and Jamie, they got it varnished up and looking great.

    As a general overhaul, both shops were fitted with new signage and lighting, as a result of which we can honestly say that the shops have never looked better and we’ve got plenty more ideas up our sleeves too!

    Projects like these are great to keep us busy but really it’s more of a pride thing, we’re tremendously proud of what we do here and aim to keep the standards high.

  • The Big Picture

    Fortunately I have a relatively long nose.
    There was a time when I wasn’t that keen on its length.

    My daughter has inherited this feature from me.
    (She says that she has corners on her head, my fault too.)

    I don’t think she blames me any more.
    She has A level biology now and understands about genes.

    Most people can’t see much further than the end of their nose.
    So in practical terms, I feel this gives me an advantage over many people.

    Especially in matters spiritual and philosophical.

    I wonder what keeps aardvarks awake at night.
