Price Changes

As current customers will know we always review our prices at the end of the year. We are aware of the continuing difficult circumstances for everyone and have done our best to hold our fees at the current level. We are pleased to say that we will hold the 2013 prices for another year.

However, we have a growing problem with bad debts. Several people have simply disappeared over the last year, leaving us with their caravan. Often we have simply had to scrap the van after trying repeatedly to get in touch with them. This also means we have lost a set of the electronic access keys. In order to cover these costs we have decided to increase the deposit taken on those keys to £85 from 1st. January 2014. Please note this remains a deposit and will be refunded in full when a customer leaves provided we have had a month’s notice – this includes deciding not to renew when fees fall due – and the electronic keys are returned.

The storage fees page of the website has been updated to reflect this change.

Those of you who were on the site the other Sunday may have wondered what on earth was going on with all those people about. Well, we were hosting a 12 km. obstacle race for Naked Strength to benefit the A.B.F. and R.A.B.I. Similar events will be held in February and August next year so if you fancy joining in watch this space!

I’ve posted below some photos of the day and these is a video of the whole course on YouTube if you follow this link

It’s Show Time!

Some of you will know at this time of the year David takes the prize specimens of his sheep around the best of the agricultural shows to compete against other breeders. So far we’ve been to the Staffordshire and Kenilworth shows.

At Staffordshire we had the Reserve champion Ram with one of our Dorsets and won the ‘Best 3’ class with the Charmoise. We did equally well at Kenilworth and have the Ian Litchfield Trophy on display for the best pen of 3 lambs.

The big shows – Three Counties, Great Yorkshire – are yet to come so keep watching for the results.
