Welcome from Guy Warner
What a difference a year makes! As we start to head down the government’s roadmap to some sense of normality, it’s hard to believe how much the world has changed in the last 12 months.
But time marches on and spring is definitely in the air again. The first sign that a new season is upon us is the proliferation of wonderful spring flowers – the daffodils, tulips, hyacinths – that are appearing all around the countryside, but which are also available to buy at our stores. They are the perfect way to treat yourself at this time of year without spending a fortune.
Flowers are, of course, the classic Mother’s Day gift and there’s no mum I know that doesn’t enjoy receiving a colourful posy or bouquet. This Sunday, while we may not be able to see our loved ones, there are other ways to let the people you care about know you are thinking of them. Whether it’s a phone call, a FaceTime chat or simply a card in the post, now it feels more important than ever to connect with those we hold dear.
We are all working towards keeping our garage forecourts and shops safe in the run-up to Easter and beyond. As always, we are here to help, so please do ask if we can be of service.
