Do you know an amazing gardener?

Covid Casualty - We' re closing

Daisy Doggie Daycare and Grooming

It is a with a very heavy heart I have to inform you that Daisy Doggie Daycare will be closing down on August 13th under a "Voluntary Liquidation of the business".

For the past few full months, after lock down, we have only managed from 4 to the odd 15+ dogs in a day. This is not sustainable when one has to pay rent and wages.

Declining dog numbers week after week leave me no choice but to shut Daisy Doggie Daycare down.

Covid 19 has changed the way people work and many have been impacted financially. All of these have effected our business model.
To all of you, thank you for the chance to love and care for your dog. I have enjoyed them and shall miss them like my own children.

Thank you to all of you as you have shared your doggie with me. I so appreciate each and every one.

Please come and enjoy the days we still have.

Thank you and may you all stay safe.

My door is always open for a chat if you need.

Sincerely

Des Nunneley,
Owner
Daisy Doggie Daycare.

Key tips for a warmer, drier home – 2/9 – Curtains

Owner from Curtain Clean BOP Ltd

• Make it your kids job to open curtains and windows in the morning
• Close your curtains just before sunset to keep the cold night air out
• Opening your curtains during the day allows the sun to heat your home for free
• If you use non-standard window dressings make sure they fit snug around the frame
• You might be able to get curtains cheap or free from your local curtain bank
