A family owned Garage Door Business

Garage Door Centre is a local family run business that has been supplying and fitting garage doors to the residents and beyond for over 26 years. You can get cheap garage door repair from us.

“It was my dad who originally founded the company; it was then handed down to me 8 years ago. My dad survived the last recession by believing that giving customers exactly what you promise and delivering strong after sales is the best way to maintain a professional and positive reputation. The market is tough but people deserve affordable quality and that’s what we have always provided”

 

One of our longest standing employees Kris Burton started with the company at the age of 17 and has proven his ability to not only run the office but also gained qualifications and is well on his way to becoming a qualified accountant.

“We have customers now that we fitted doors for over ten years ago, we make customer service a priority, being a family run business we have gone from strength to strength based on our existing clients passing on recommendations to friends and family.”…

Orchard restoration with London Orchard Project

On Friday the 10th Feb 2018, I spent the day with the awesome guys at London Orchard Project.

The orchard at Bethlam Royal Hospital is undergoing restoration. Although no longer based at its original location, the hospital is recognised as the world’s first and oldest institution to specialise in mental illnesses, and it’s origins date back the the 13th century.

We spent the morning planting fruit trees with patients, staff and a handful of volunteers. Just a few short years ago, this orchard had been overrun by natural woodland. Now, partially rescued, work continues to restore the orchard to it’s former glory.

Here is a step by step guide on how to plant fruit trees with Lewis from the London Orchard Project taken on our day out planting in the crisp cold February air.
