BUY BRITISH DAY - FRIDAY 3RD OCTOBER 2014

Buy British Day is launching for the first time this Friday - please think about making a choice to buy something that’s been made or grown here to support our jobs, industries and tradtional practices -we all know some things can be more expensive when it’s made here in the UK but not everything is- and also, yes your shoes might be under £50 if you buy them made in Vietnam, but are you sure their working environment is safe and clean? Wouldn’t it be nicer if brands like Clarks opened up factories here in the UK again selling a new line of British made shoes?
British design and engineering is considered the best in the world, so now let’s make the manufacturing the best in the world too -
And, another point I’d like to make is, if we don’t buy more British stuff we just continue to being merely shoppers and consumers instead of makers.
How many of us moan that young people are disaffected and can’t find jobs? Well, a lot of those young people don’t aspire to pushing emails around an office all day, those young people might actually enjoying being part of a team in a British factory that makes zips or shoes or bicycles or speedboats or even something seemingly as insignificant as the thingamy-jig that holds the wotsit together that is the lynch pin to how a jumbo jet flies across at the Atlantic! It’s so much more satisfying to make something each day than make meaningless emails fly from one office to another.

Please try and buy British on Friday - even if it’s a Kent grown apple or a local Sussex Chutney - it doesn’t have to be a £200 bag or a Rolls Royce, just take part in some small way.

So bad,it’s good.
SO, I was using my Shire tote today for a parcel trip to the post office, carries tons,looks great, a hommage to the handsome Shire horse, and blow me down, this chunky fella is on an old 70’s high tea trolley outside a house with a sticker on its back with the words ” horsey. £1-please put money through the letterbox- thanks”
So I did.
Genius. 
So then I carry on into the post office and the lady behind the counter says”that one of your own bags then?” I nod, “does it come with the horse,does it?”
I’m SO close to nodding I have to dig my doorkeys into my hand.
