SHARPEN THOSE BLADES!
It's that time of year again where we have to think about clipping!
We sharpen blades all year round, but during the winter months, we also offer in-store clipper blade sharpening for £10 per set. Razor Sharp will be at the Selby store on the second Saturday every month starting from 12th October.

STAY SAFE, BE SEEN
Many of us don our hi-viz gear all year round, however, as the nights begin to draw in, it's time to re-visit our reflective wardrobes and make sure we are all set for the dull days ahead. Did you know: Research by the Ministry of Defense shows that helicopter pilots could potentially see a rider in hi-viz up to half a mile sooner!

We're not going to mention 'the word' yet, but we know it's not too early to start thinking about a few gift ideas.

So, to ease you into the idea of present shopping, we thought we'd show you these cute new cushions from Evans Lichfield.
