No, not quite yet. We’ve seen those singing shows on TV, we know that building tension is vital in these things. First Dermot has to do a recap of our free bench photo competition…

Many of you will have seen the photo competition we’ve been running; schools who’ve previously bought our recycled plastic picnic tables were invited to submit photos of their furniture in situ, we posted them on our social media and the one who got the most response by noon today would receive a free piece of furniture of their choice, delivered. Well, the lines are now closed, the votes have been counted, Simon Cowell’s got his trousers way up high and…

Strong response

The response has been amazing, with many schools really pushing the boat with costumes and some expert posing, and today we can reveal that the winner is… (dramatic music, tense audience shots, Dermot stares silently at the autocue…) Neville Road Juniors! Their choice of bench will be winging its way to Stockport very soon. Congratulations to everyone involved at Nevill Road, they really went for it with their costumes, the kids must have a lot of fun with teaching staff like these. With over 400 responses by the close of play, they’ve really drawn some attention.

If all this silliness has got you thinking about what you’d do with some recycled plastic picnic benches, drop us a line at [email protected] and we’ll help you out. Price list is here.
