The old saw ‘a stitch in time saves nine’ holds as true even with our tough product. The first thing to...

Muddy, wet gateways? Yuk!

With the amount of rain that has fallen during the past three weeks even the freest draining soils have tended to become waterlogged. Hock deep mud that sucks your gum boots off. You might think it too late to do anything about it this year, but we can offer a potential route to instant salvation. Another highly effective solution, particularly in the current sodden conditions, is to lay our stiff plastic mesh (M9) before laying the mats. It acts as a sort of...

POSTSCRIPT to ‘The Diary of a Dog’

As some time has passed since my great scribble project, I am sure you’d like to know the current state of play. Well, first of all, spring still hasn’t arrived, even though British Summer Time has; and even the swallows have returned!

Remedial works at Celia Cross Greyhound Rescue kennels

Immediately outside the kennels is a fenced, grassy slope that comes down to the concrete path beside the kennels. The grassy slope is flint bound, and so cut paw pads was a constant problem when the dogs came out and had a run around.
