Get Ready NOW – The Barbecues Are Coming Out!

Following the recent announcement of a planned relaxing of COVID restrictions, garden centres are, apparently, running out of furniture, pots, plants, firepits and barbecues. There’s been a run on fence paint and sales of outdoor picnic ware has rocketed.
