Buying a hammock online

I've just found this on their "About us" page:

"Where are we based? Newton Business Park, Talbot Rd, Hyde. SK14 4UQ."  but I couldn't find it earlier 

I sort of suspect that Pete might know them -  but of course I might just be a COF (Cynical Old Forker).

I really enjoy this forum

Hi Jonus and welcome - it happens to us all from time to time - one thing that's guaranteed to spark my interest again is to get a catalogue from a different seed company, full of things I've never tried before 

The other thing that works for me is to read through lots of posts on here and see what other people are doing ............. suddenly, without noticing it, I'm out in the garden doing it too 

The third thing that works is warmer weather and sunshine - it'll happen soon, but I hear we've got a cold snap coming in Feb, so best not get the seeds started too soon 

PS - the gin bottle is the reward for having been out there

I remember quite recently driving past a similar row of  men with something like Suffolk Constabulary FC on the backs of their track suits.  All seemed to be looking at something interesting in a hedgerow

Glad I'm not the only one daft enough to do things like that
