Gosh how the vararies of the british summer impact on the way we run our businesses.  Not so long ago we were all jolly miserable because the winter was taking rather too long to shift and we were unable to buckle down to a good day’s work.  The weather did pick up by July, so much so that the tennis was interrupted for the first week and additional heat relief breaks were allowed and public announcements to the crowds to take onboard more water and sun protection were everywhere to be seen.   Folk carried on working and holidaying or living it up at home.

Today the weather need not be a problem when you want to live out of your garden – with hi tech protection on all wooden furniture and the vast array of designs, including some amazing space heaters, rain/sun parasols etc. there will be something to suit all tastes.
