If, like us, you’ve noticed the brighter days and the garden springing into life, you’ll be in no doubt that Spring is finally here!

2015 has well and truly dawned and we’ve decided to get the workshop off to a positive start by opening it up to you!
Top of our New Year’s Resolution list (just above ‘keep workshop tidier’ and ‘stop buying hammers on eBay’…) is ‘start workshop blog’, so here we are!
