May proved to be a very busy month for us and with the lovely weather that has greeted the start of June we hope to continue in this vein.

At the end of April, the winner of the Kebur Community Challenge as run by radio station 96.4 Eagle was announced.  The lucky winners were St Michael’s Project Group in Camberley.  They are a group of people who live in four storey flats with little or no garden or community areas. The housing association has recently given them three overgrown gardens to work on and create a beautiful area where the community can come together for social and community events. They can work together to create something good and we are sure the £2000 worth of materials will go a long way towards helping make that happen.

We regularly advertise on 96.4 Eagle and we hope listeners will have enjoyed our recent series of adverts based on a farmer and his wife discussing their relative needs for garden products!

We have been busy further improving our show areas, with new boards displaying yet more paving, block paving and the ACO groundguards.  Our shed area been enhanced with the attractive black and white granite chippings and there will soon be a couple of sample arches and arbours within that area as well.

A couple of years ago we were supplying the popular Rugdwick Multi clay brick pavers.  These proved to be popular for courtyards, patios as well as used for edgings.  Unfortunately the Rudgwick factory had to be closed down.  But we are now pleased to tell you that another Wienerberger factory is producing a very similar product and we have plenty in stock here in our yard in Farnborough.  The new brick pavers are called Smokejacks, they are available in either a multi or a terracotta shade and are 220x115x50mm.

We are pleased to say that our new range of artificial grasses launched earlier this year has proven to be popular, with the sales of Wembley (held in stock) being especially encouraging.
