Winter has now arrived, Bonfire Night has just passed, Carnival has just started and thoughts are now moving to the Christmas period.

Both of our stores have been extremely busy over the past few weeks, showrooms have been re-arranged and filled with some great products to spark ideas for Christmas gifts. Our Wells store have, for the first time, an amazing range of Christmas lights for indoor and outdoor use and room decorations, including wreaths, garlands and scented fruit decorations. We also have a great selection of Festive food, including chocolates, tins of biscuits, Chutneys, Pickles and Preserves, savoury snacks and so much more. It really is starting to feel and smell a lot like Christmas.

Our Congresbury store have had a huge refit, giving the store a fresh new feel and making room for lots more product ranges, including increased space for Farm and Country Toys and pet products.

And….Talking of TOYS, why not visit our Wells store and have a look around our AMAZING Toy Department? Our range of Farm and Country toys are second to none. Not only do we stock the classics, Britains, Siku, Rolly Pedal Tractors and Bruder, we also stock big brands such as Brio, Schleich, BERG Go-Karts and Sylvanian Families, including the new Town range. We have also introduced some fab new product ranges this year, such as BrainBox games, Engino Construction Kits and also some classic wooden toys from BigJigs. We have so much in fact, Santa will not need to go anywhere else to fill up his sleigh this year.

This week sees the arrival of the Carnival to the streets of Somerset. An amazing evening of entertainment that really should not be missed.

The massive Carts will make their way around the medieval streets of Wells this Friday, filling them with bright and dazzling light, music, dancing, beautiful costumes, all of which create a unique and exciting atmosphere.

There are two main categories, which include ‘Tableau’, where performers pose in a fixed position to depict a scene, effectively creating a living picture. One Carnival club to watch in this category is Huckyduck, they have created some amazing and prize winning entries in the past few years, one of our favourites was ‘In Flanders Fields’ from 2015, which was a WW1 themed tableau. It was truly amazing. Then there’s ‘Feature’, where the floats are huge, with lots of spinning and moving pieces, loud music, amazing costumes and great choreographed dance routines. Some of these floats even have smoke machines, fire cannons and snow machines.

The carnival is FREE to watch and all of the floats are created and built by enthusiasts who commit a huge amount of their spare time raising money for their respective Carnival Clubs and local Charities throughout the whole year. There are not many places you can go in this country for such a great night out with the family. Make sure you take plenty of loose change with you to donate to all of the charity collectors on the night and help support an amazing event.

You can see this amazing spectacle tonight Wednesday 15th November in Shepton Mallet, Friday 17th November in Wells and Saturday 18th November in Glastonbury.

With only a few more days until Bonfire Night, thoughts will be turning to organising you firework parties and planning what fireworks you will need to make the big night go off with a bang.

The first thing to consider is, how long do you want your display to last? How far will your spectators be away from the fireworks? How built up is the area? If you have a lot of houses around you, you may want to consider not using rockets, as the debrise is likely to land on someone elses home or land in their gardens. In this situation, we highly recommend multi-shot fireworks, which are aerial displays, but without the risk of any debrise falling. If you only have a small garden and spectators are going to be close by, your best bet would be to use ground fireworks such as Fountains and Catherine wheels. Whatever you decide, we stock a huge range of fireworks and we have something for all budgets and situation.

If you’re looking to host a party, why not suggest that everone bring along a firework? That way it keeps your costs down and you’re more than likely to have a great selection to set off. If we had to recommend fireworks for a party, we always suggest a good selection pack, some rockets, a fountain and a big Multi-shot for your finale piece. Oh and don’t forget the sparklers!!

I don’t think any firework party is complete with out some bangers!! The sausage variety anyway. You can’t beat a good hotdog on a cold winters night whilst watching the skys light up with beautiful explosions and colour.

Please look after yourselves at fireworks parties. If you are the one organising and lighting your fireworks, please remember not to drink alcohol, keep children far away from danger, Always keep a bucket of water close by, use safety fire lighting sticks and never try to relight a dud.

Lastly, don’t forget to protect your pets, as many dogs and cats are afraid of fireworks. Always shut them away in a quiet room and make them as comfortable and warm as possible. Why not try some calming aids such as Pet Remedy wipes and sprays. Made of natural ingredients, these products are a fantastic way to help your pets during stressful times, especially during the firework season.

Have a fantastic Bonfire Night, be safe and have fun.

What are the first words that come to mind when you hear the brand STIHL mentioned?.....Quality…..Reliable….Professional….Expensive…..Man tools?

Well, the first of these two words are very true and as a Stihl dealer for over 30 years, we would definitely agree. Stihl build quality machines, that as long as they are looked after and maintained, will go on and on for years.

As for just for professionals and Men, this is not at all true. Although Stihl produce a huge range of machines for the professional market, in recent years they have invested a huge amount of money and resources into the domestic market, especially with cordless power. Stihl have been designing and producing cordless machines for a number of years now.

First we saw the AP PRO range released, which was aimed at the large garden owner and professional market. With a range of nearly thirty different machines, including chainsaws, long reach hedge trimmers and now even a stone cutter. The battery technology is phenomenal, allowing you to power some machines for over three hours between charges. Powerful performance, long battery life and outstanding handling are essential when tackling more demanding gardening jobs. STIHL's professional cordless products offer quiet, emission free performance and are really useful in noise-sensitive areas.

Last year saw the introduction of the Compact Cordless range. Ideal for the domestic gardener with medium to large gardens. With six different machines to choose from, all with interchangeable batteries, now including the BRAND NEW Viking MA235 Lawnmower, as well as a choice of two chainsaws, and a leaf blower just to name a few. Each of the tools is lightweight, quiet and powerful.

Now, this is where things get really exciting!! This MONTH saw the release of the BRAND NEW Domestic Lithium-Ion range of cordless garden tools. Perfect for small gardens, this range includes a Hedge Trimmer, Grass Trimmer and now a fantastic little Leaf Blower. All with integrated rechargeable batteries and with fantastic running times. Whether you want to trim hedges, clear leaves or mow the lawn – with these quiet and lightweight garden helpers, they always have enough power. Now, here’s the best bit, all three machines in this range are priced at ONLY £99 with a 2 year warranty. That’s right, a STIHL Machine for ONLY £99.

No fuel costs, no service costs and no cord. Stihl Cordless Power….The Future.
