Written by: sarah

Be careful what you wish for….. you may just get it!  The dry, hot weather has now been here for a while, and set to continue for a few days yet. Fantastic for business, but not the easiest of working conditions. It’s hot in the factory, working in overalls, gloves, boots and masks, but at […]

Be aware of cheap imitations!

Written by: sarah

Recently we have noticed at least one company selling a tennis court paint that looks like a decent price until you read further.

March 11th – yet more snow here in Leicestershire.  After last week’s 2 day teaser of warm weather, the cold has returned with avengence. This time last year there was a mini heatwave for a couple of weeks, so there is always hope of a good start in March. Many of our customers are champing […]

Warmer weather coming!!

Written by: sarah

The weather men are saying it’s going to be warmer this weekend – even into double figures in some places (although hard to believe looking out of the window at the snow coming down….. again….). Paint making for the 2013 season is starting to get underway again as Birch Sports looks to fill the space […]

Winter’s here

Written by: sarah

Sadly another spraying season is now at an end until the spring brings warmer weather. The wettest summer on record has tested us all – trying to work out when the sun will be out for long enough to get anything on the floor. Fingers crossed that next year will be a scorcher!!!
